Good Monday afternoon! Today has been a rather gloomy day for our area, but temperatures managed to reach the middle to upper 60s across most of our area. A little drizzle at times will continue during the evening hours, with temperatures holding steady in the lower 60s tonight. More widespread rain will arrive late tonight into early Tuesday morning. There could be some thunder involved, but severe weather is not expected. Temperatures will start off in the middle 60s at sunrise, then fall into the 50s by midday.

Temperatures will continue to fall into the 30s Tuesday night, with middle to upper 30s in our area. Skies will become clear Tuesday night, with northwest breeze.

Wednesday looks great for mid February. Look for a good dose of sunshine, with a high in the lower 60s. Clouds increase on Thursday, but temperatures will continue to warm a bit. Expect a high around 65 Thursday afternoon.

Rain is possible late on Thursday and into the day on Friday, but models have trended drier with this system. It is interesting to note models have also trended less impressive on the colder air, so we may have to make changes to next weekend. Given that is several days out, there is time to make adjustments.

Warm Monday, then Rain & Storms – Sunday Forecast Update @wvua23 #ALwx

OHxZ978L

Enjoy a warm Monday, as temperatures climb to near 70 degrees! I expect much of Central Alabama to remain cloudy on Monday, with a slight chance for an evening shower.

Our next weather system is going to move through the twin states overnight Monday into Tuesday morning. I’m not expecting much in the way of severe weather, but most areas are still under a Level 1 “Marginal” Risk for Monday night/Tuesday morning. Impacts will include rainfall amounts near 1″ and some gusty damaging winds. All storms should be out of the area by Tuesday afternoon, as temperatures drop and skies clear behind the cold front.

Wednesday and Thursday will be seasonable, with highs near 60 degrees and a mix of clouds and sun. Some moisture may produce some scattered showers on Thursday afternoon and evening ahead of the next frontal system.

By Friday, the cold front arrives bringing another round of heavy rainfall and some strong storms. Right now, it’s too early to detail any possible strong to severe storm threats or details. Though this front also moves out rather quickly, leaving a nice weekend in store.

Warmer Afternoons and Rain Are On The Way! Saturday 7pm update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngHappy Saturday everyone! It was a mild day today with a cooler start but highs still reaching into the mid to low 50s for much of central Alabama. Areas to the north struggled to reach into the mid 40s such as Haleyville. Tonight we all are going to cool down into the low 40s with mostly cloudy skies. The clouds will act as a blanket for us so lows can be a little warmer than last night.

Tomorrow don’t expect a lot of sunshine but it will heat up into the upper 50s! There is a chance for a few isolated showers but that should stay in more north Alabama and there is only a small chance for a few small pop up showers here due to southerly flow returning, bringing in moisture from the Gulf.

Monday night into Tuesday is when our next cold front moves through. With this front there is a chance for some possible strong to severe storms but right now it is too soon to know for sure how the atmosphere will react to changes these next few days. We should be clear of rain by noon on Tuesday and highs Tuesday will reach into the mid 60s.

Wednesday will be our next time to enjoy the sunshine and a warmer afternoon!

Cool Weekend… Rain Early Next Week… Friday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather was much cooler today, with temperatures a good 30 degrees below temperatures on Thursday. Most areas along and south of I-20 made it into the lower 50s, with 40s north of I-20. Expect a chilly night tonight, with temperatures dropping into the lower 30s. Clouds continue to increase tonight, but I don’t expect any rain overnight.

Clouds decrease on Saturday, with a high in the lower 50s. We’ll remain in a southwest flow aloft over the weekend, so clouds quickly increase again on Sunday, as moisture overruns the surface front to our south. Highs will top out in the lower 50s on Saturday and upper 50s on Sunday.

We’ll warm into the upper 60s on Monday and Tuesday, as rain returns ahead of our next cold front. Rain appears more likely Tuesday morning, with falling temperatures Tuesday afternoon. It could be a day where we reach the upper 60s at sunrise, then fall into the lower 50s after lunch.

Turning Cooler Tonight… Rain Next Week… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

s.pngGood Thursday afternoon! Our local weather turned out very warm again today, with Tuscaloosa reaching 82 degrees. The old record was 79, set in 1999. A cold front is approaching Alabama from the west, and we’ll notice a big drop in temperatures overnight. Tomorrow morning, we’ll start the day in the lower 40s. A few showers are expected tonight, but rain amounts will be light. Totals will generally range near 0.10″ to 0.20″ Thursday night.

We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds on Friday; in-fact, there could be a point in the day where skies clear out in our area. Temperatures will become very chilly behind the front, with areas north of I-20 remaining in the 40s all day, with low 50s to the south. We can expect lower 30s Friday night, with increasing clouds.

We’ll remain in a southwest flow aloft over the weekend, so expect a partly to mostly cloudy sky on Saturday and Sunday, as moisture overruns the surface front to our south. Highs will top out in the lower 50s on Saturday and upper 50s on Sunday.

We’ll warm into the upper 60s on Monday and Tuesday, as rain returns ahead of our next cold front.

Record Highs on Thursday… Chilly on Friday…Wednesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640_jpg.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Today turned out to be very warm, near record temperatures in our area. At 4pm, Tuscaloosa was at 79 degrees, and it’s likely Tuscaloosa reached 80 between hourly observations. Expect a mild night, with temperatures dipping into the middle 60s. Humidity will remain high, but a south wind will keep foggy issues very isolated.

Thursday will be another very warm day, with temperatures nearing records for this time of the year. Expect a high around 80 Thursday afternoon. A thin band of showers will move through Thursday night, but models have trended faster with the exit, so it now appears that the day Friday will be dry. Rain amounts will generally range near 0.10″ to 0.20″ Thursday night.

Clouds will remain with us on Friday, with only a few peaks of sun. Temperatures will become very chilly behind the front, with areas north of I-20 remaining in the 40s all day, with low 50s to the south. We can expect lower 30s Friday night.

We’ll remain in a southwest flow aloft over the weekend, so expect a partly to mostly cloudy sky on Saturday and Sunday, as moisture overruns the surface front to our south. Highs will top out in the lower 50s on Saturday and upper 50s on Sunday.
