A Nice Week Ahead… Saturday PM Forecast Update… #alwx @wvua23

7 DAY 2

Good Saturday evening! It was a very nice afternoon across central Alabama today with temperatures reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. A much welcomed warm up after the cold blast last week!

Going throughout this week the warm up will continue with temperatures rising into the 60s and even lower 70s. Rain chances look to hold off until we get closer to late week, however, any rain coverage looks pretty isolated right now with the best chance coming in late Thursday night into Friday. The rain chances will be associated with a cold front that will move in and knock our temperatures back down into the upper 50s and lower 60s for the weekend. The good news? It does not appear we will see any brutal cold over the next seven days.

Enjoy the milder conditions and calm weather this week!

Get Ready for the Coldest Air of the Season This Week…Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (2).jpgGood Sunday evening! It was a beautiful day across Alabama today with sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s to near 70. I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy it! As we do have big changes on the way for Monday.

For Monday, expect a nice start to the day with temps in the 60s under partly sunny skies. However, by the afternoon expect increasing clouds and falling temperatures. Rain chances increase also, but the best shot at rain across central Alabama will be after dark. Lows will bottom out in the middle 30s and on Tuesday? I hope you have your heavy coat because highs will struggle to break out of the upper 30s and lower 40s. Wind chills will remain near freezing all day. Tuesday night expect near record lows with the mercury falling into the lower 20s! It will feel more like January instead of November.

Beyond Tuesday, expect highs in the 50s and 60s for the rest of the week with drier conditions.
