Rain Ahead… Warmer Temps, Then Colder on Sunday… Tuesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640.JPG

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather remain overcast for much of the day across central and west Alabama, with slow clearing. This kept temperatures a little cooler than forecasted, with most spots remaining in the mid to upper 40s. Expect a partly cloudy to mostly clear sky overnight, as temperatures drop into the lower 30s. There could be some fog overnight, so use caution traveling.

Wednesday will feature seasonal weather. Highs will reach the middle 50s under a partly to mostly sunny sky. Clouds increase Wednesday night, then showers move in Thursday morning. The risk of showers will continue into the evening hours on Thursday, but I expect breaks in the rain.

Friday is looking warm and mostly dry. I expect a mostly cloudy sky, but widespread rain is unlikely. A deep surface low will develop to our northwest, sending a cold front through Alabama Saturday night. This will send rain and storms across the state Saturday afternoon into the evening hours.

Much colder air will filter in on Sunday, with a high near 40 for I-20, but areas north of there could stay in the 30s all day. A strong north wind will make it feel colder on Sunday. I expect lower 20s Sunday night, with some teens north of I-20. Highs will top out in the lower to middle 40s on Monday.

Chilly for Now… Rain on Thursday… Very Cold by Sunday… Monday PM Forecast Update

7 Day Forecast 6PM SHOW- Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Monday afternoon! Today has turned out to be a chilly day across our area with low clouds and a brisk north breeze. As of 4pm, most areas were only in the lower to middle 40s. Expect lower 30s tonight, with a slow decrease in clouds.

Tuesday will feature a mostly cloudy start to the day, with sunshine increasing by noon for most of the area. The clouds may have a hard time clearing for areas north of I-20, but dry air will take over there as well during the afternoon on Tuesday. Look for lower 50s for highs south of I-20, with 40s for highs to the north…

Wednesday will feature seasonal weather for this time of the year. We’ll start the day in the 30s, then warm into the upper 50s by mid afternoon.

Clouds increase again on Thursday, with rain becoming likely during the day. Periods of rain will continue into Thursday night before coming to an end. I think most of Friday will be dry and mild, with temperature reaching the middle to upper 60s.

Our next system to approach comes in on Saturday, with heavy rain likely. Severe weather is not expected. As a very deep upper air trough swings in Saturday night and on Sunday, there’s a chance we could see some flurries as the precip moves out. Typically, these setups don’t amount to accumulations. Sunday and Monday will be the coldest air so far this season, with teens likely Sunday night.

Rain is Back in the Forecast…. Sunday Afternoon Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640NEW.JPG

Well today remained dry, but dreary. Temperatures reached the upper 40s here in Tuscaloosa. Cloudy conditions will remain for Monday, but no rain in sight. Temperatures will be in the lower 50s for tomorrow, but it will feel a little cooler than 50 due to the cloud coverage.

The sun comes back out for Tuesday, and dry conditions remain. Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid to lower 50s. Wednesday will be dry and mostly sunny, and temperatures continue to climb as we head towards the end of the week. Wednesday will be in the upper 50s.

Thursday is our next best shot of seeing rain, I’m expecting widespread rain throughout the day on Thursday. Temperatures will be in the lower 60s. The 60s continue for Friday as well, and expect a few scattered showers to remain in the forecast. Rain chances increase for Saturday.

Our next chance at some cold, and I mean cold, air comes Saturday night. Lows will be in the mid to upper TWENTIES. The cold persists into Saturday, and expect mostly cloudy conditions as well.

Seasonal Temperatures & Dry Days Ahead… Saturday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640EO.JPG

We saw some decent rain showers today here in Tuscaloosa, but as the afternoon hit, the rain started to taper off and continue to the northeast. The rain will be out of Alabama towards the overnight hours, but expect a few lingering showers. Tonight temperatures will be pretty cold, in the lower 40s.

Tomorrow expect another gloomy day, mostly dry though, but I couldn’t rule out a scattered shower or two throughout the day. Temperatures for tomorrow will be in the mid to lower 50s.

Dry weather comes back into the forecast for the beginning of the work week, and will last until Wednesday, so enjoy it while it’s here. Mostly cloudy conditions for Monday, but we’ll see the sun on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thursday we’ll see our next shot of rain, and rain chances will continue to increase towards the end of the week. Expect wide spread rain on Friday and Saturday. Our temperatures will be more seasonable like this week, and our next shot of cold air comes Saturday.

Rain on Saturday… Dry by Monday… Friday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Friday afternoon! After a cold start to the day, this afternoon turned out beautiful. Temperatures made it into the middle to upper 50s after lunch, which is right at statistical averages for early to mid January. Clouds will increase tonight, with a low in the upper 30s.

Rain gradually spreads in on Saturday, but I think most of the morning will be dry. The higher rain chance arrives in west Alabama around midday and continues into the afternoon, spreading from west to east. Expect a soaking rain for all of our area during the mid to late afternoon.

Clouds stick around on Sunday, with a few lingering showers or some drizzle. Highs will reach the middle 50s on Sunday. By Monday, we’ll struggle to reach 50, under a mostly cloudy sky.

Temperatures will rebound by the middle of next week, with many areas approaching 60 degrees Wednesday afternoon. We’ll start off Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning in the 30s at sunrise.

Rain by Saturday… Cool Temps Continue… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Thursday afternoon! Our local weather remained cool today, despite lots of sunshine. Most areas managed to reach the lower 50s, especially over the western side of the state. Temperatures will drop fast after sunset, with many areas below freezing by midnight. Expect a low in the upper 20s to near 30 in our area tonight.

Clouds slowly increase on Friday, with temperatures warming into the lower 50s by mid afternoon. I don’t expect any rain on Friday, but a few showers will move in early Saturday morning, followed by a widespread rain by midday Saturday. Periods of rain will continue into Saturday night, then decreasing to light showers on Sunday. Rain on Sunday will be very isolated and mainly confined to the eastern side of the state. Clouds will stick with us through much of Monday.

Tuesday through Thursday of next week returns to seasonal conditions. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 50s, with lows in the 30s.

Good Wednesday afternoon! Today has turned out a big cooler compared to yesterday, with most areas in the lower to middle 50s during the afternoon. Expect a clear sky tonight, with temperatures dropping into the upper 20s. With a light north wind, frost will be light and patchy, but it will feel colder.

Sunny skies remain in the forecast for Thursday, as highs approach the 50 degree mark. Some areas north of I-20 will remain in the 40s all day.

The next chance of rain will arrive Friday night and on Saturday, with a cool rainy day to start off the weekend. By Sunday, rain should be out of here early in the morning, but clouds will likely remain with us for a good chunk of the day. We’ll struggle to reach 50 Sunday afternoon.

Clouds slowly clear out late in the day on Monday, with full sunshine back for Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will remain in the 50s.
