Sunny Days Continue… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! After a cool start to the day, conditions became nice this afternoon. Temperatures are generally in the lower 60s as of 4pm, but expect a rapid drop in temperatures tonight. I expect lows in the lower 30s along I-20, with upper 20s north of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham.

Thanksgiving day is looking nice and dry. Highs will top out near 60, after a cold start to the day. Black Friday will feature a good dose of sunshine. Middle 30s at sunrise, followed by middle 60s by mid afternoon. We’ll warm into the upper 60s on Saturday before another cold front drops highs back into the low 60s on Sunday and Monday. There is no risk of rain for the next 7 days.

Iron Bowl in Auburn will feature comfortable late November temperatures, with a kickoff temp of 67. By the end of the game, temperatures will drop into the upper 50s, under a partly cloudy sky.

Cooler Days for Now… Nice by Saturday… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4:35pm #alwx @wvua23

aafahjjsagahhhjsfwe.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather turned out really nice this afternoon, with temperatures closer to the statistical average. Much of west and central Alabama started off the day with a light coast of frost, followed by a quick warm up into the afternoon. Expect a cool night tonight, with increasing clouds. A cold front will move through the after late tonight, but moisture is very limited, so widespread rain is not expected. I can’t rule out a quick sprinkle, but don’t count on measurable rain. Look for lows in the lower 40s tonight.

Wednesday will feature plenty of sunshine, with a high in the upper 50s. A light north breeze will make it feel cooler on Wednesday.

Thanksgiving day is looking cool and dry. Highs will top out in the upper 50s, with a low in the middle 30s. We’ll warm into the upper 60s on Saturday before another cold front drops highs back into the 50s on Sunday and Monday. There is no risk of rain for the next 7 days.

Cool Days and Cool Nights Continue… Monday Forecast Update – 4:15pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon! Our local weather started off very cold this morning with the first widespread freeze and frost of the season. Some of us have already seen a frost and light freeze, but this morning’s temperatures were in the freeze/frost criteria for all of west and central Alabama. With mostly clear skies, I expect a fairly fast drop in temperatures tonight, with a low in the middle 30s.

Tuesday will feature a nice and dry day, with highs reaching into the lower 60s. A cold front will push through the area on Wednesday, but rain is not expected with the front. Highs will drop back into the upper 50s on Wednesday, with middle 30s Wednesday night.

Thanksgiving day is looking cool and dry. Highs will top out in the upper 50s, with a low in the middle 30s. We’ll warm into the upper 60s on Saturday before another cold front drops highs back into the 50s on Sunday and Monday. There is no risk of rain for the next 7 days.

Cool, Dry Thanksgiving Week. Sunday Forecast Update, 6:40 PM. #wxal @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PMGood Sunday evening! We remained cool today and we are in for a chilly night. In fact, we currently have a freeze warning out since this will be the coldest night we’ve seen so far this Fall and most will see temperatures dropping below freezing (ranging from 26-31 degrees). Make sure if you have any sensitive plants that they are either covered or brought indoors.

Tomorrow will start the short work week with a quick attempt to warm up. As we see the northerly wind flow quickly shift to easterly, then southeasterly Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will increase slightly. The greatest warming comes Tuesday afternoon and evening when winds will be coming out of the south. Wednesday, a few clouds filter in as another trough makes aim to move through the state, bringing an end to the warming. Moisture availability will be too low Wednesday when the trough moves through to produce any rain. By Wednesday evening the trough will have moved through and cooler weather returns again, in time for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving will again be chilly with northerly winds bringing in cooler air. Those going out late Thursday or early Friday will be dealing with temperatures close to freezing, so bundle up!

Friday and into next weekend, we start another gradual warming. High pressure starts to settle on the east coast Saturday that will be aiding the warming. Saturday night, another front will pass through with no rain and cooler weather. Sunday we again cool off from the roller coaster style weather we are going to be experiencing over the next week.

Cold Sunday. Saturday Forecast Update, 4:45pm. #wxal @wvau23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Saturday evening! We are watching a band of storms moving through Mississippi that will be arriving this evening. Some of these storms could pack a bit of a punch with gusty winds that could bring down some tree limbs. The good news is, they are tracking very quickly and won’t stay in one area for too long. We will start to see those arrive for northwest central Alabama within the next few minutes. Tuscaloosa and Birmingham arrival will be later around 6-8pm. Those further east and southeast will see them arriving later in the evening at and after 10pm. Once the storms pass skies will quickly clear and temperatures will also quickly plummet.

Tomorrow, the front will be out of central Alabama and skies will be clear. A stout northerly wind will funnel in cooler air; that will make our lower temperatures feel even cooler. Nighttime lows going into our short work week will dip below freezing.

The short work week will start with a quick attempt to warm up. As we see the northerly wind flow quickly shift to easterly, then southeasterly Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will increase slightly. Wednesday, clouds filter in as another trough makes aim to move through the state, bringing an end to the warming. Moisture availability will be too low Wednesday when the trough moves through to produce any rain. Wednesday night, the front passes through and the cooler weather returns for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving will again be chilly with northerly winds bringing in cooler air.

Friday and into next weekend, we start another gradual warming from the exit of the trough. High pressure starts to settle on the east coast Saturday that will be aiding the warming. Sunday, another front will pass through with what looks to be no rain and cooler weather.
