Seasonal Temps for Now… Rain on Saturday… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:50pm update #alwx @wvua23

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

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out rather seasonal today, with temperatures reaching the upper 60s for highs. Clouds have been increasing today across the area, as a weak surface front washes out just to our north. We’ll remain dry tonight, with temperatures dropping into the upper 40s.

Skies remain partly cloudy, with increasing sunshine Thursday afternoon. Look for a high in the upper 60s, with a light north or northeast breeze. Highs will approach 70 on Friday, with dry conditions. Clouds will gradually increase Friday evening and Friday night.

A cold front will move through the area on Saturday, with a good chance of showers and maybe a storm with the front. Rain amounts don’t appear very impressive with this front, but we could get between 1/10th an inch and 1/2 an inch. If you’re going to the Bama game Saturday in Tuscaloosa, it’s going to be a close call for rain arriving. Models seem to agree the best chance of rain will happen during the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will top out near 70 on Saturday.

Temperatures will trend cooler by Saturday night and on Sunday. Highs will remain in the 50s on Sunday!

Nice for Now… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4:40pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather was nice this afternoon after a cool start to the day. Temperatures managed to warm into the upper 60s in many areas. At 1:45pm, a loud boom was heard across portions of central Alabama, in an area around Cullman, Jasper, Birmingham, Talladega and Rockford. While we are working to get information on this, it was not related to a ground explosion or earthquake. This was possibly a sonic boom from a meteor exploding in the atmosphere. While it’s not all that uncommon, it can sound pretty scary!

Skies remain clear tonight, with temperatures falling fast into the middle 40s overnight. Highs will rebound into the upper 60s on Wednesday and Thursday, with an increase in clouds. We will remain dry through Friday. Low 70s are possible on Friday.

A cold front will move through the area on Saturday, with a good chance of showers and maybe a storm with the front. Temperatures will trend cooler by Saturday night and on Sunday.

Dry For Now… Rain Chances on Saturday… Monday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon! After a cool and foggy start for some areas, this afternoon turned into a beautiful late Fall day. Temperatures will drop fast after sunset tonight, under a clear sky and dry airmass. Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s along and north of I-20, with low 40s to the south.

We’ll maintain a sunny sky for Tuesday, with a high in the upper 60s. A weak surface front stalls just north of the area on Wednesday, but that may help to increase clouds some over the northern half of the state. Skies will become partly cloudy on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We may reach 70 in some areas on Thursday and Friday.

A strong surface cold front will move in on Saturday, with a good chance we’ll have showers and maybe a few storms, but severe weather is not expected. At this time, the best rain chance appears to be in the morning hours. Much cooler air will move in Saturday night.

Plenty of Sunshine this Week! Forecast update 9 pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngWell it was a very nice day here in Tuscaloosa! We lucked out here in town because most cities across central Alabama saw overcast skies and cooler temperatures. Due to the unexpected amount of sunlight in Tuscaloosa only, highs for the city were able to touch the 70s while other cities stayed the mid 60s.

Tonight will be a mostly cloudy evening with lows in the upper 40s. Beware early in the morning of foggy roadways. Tomorrow will be a gorgeous afternoon with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 60s. We’re finally feeling like fall! Expect a breezy afternoon around 5-10 mph.

Lots of sunshine Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday highs will touch into the 70s for many cities in central Alabama. By Friday a few clouds will move in but the day will still be mostly sunny. There is a chance for rain on Friday but models are now starting to lean more towards showers in the evening Friday and into early Saturday. Too soon to say for sure if the final game in Bryant Denny Saturday will be a dry one.

Clouds Moving In… Forecast Update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Saturday evening and Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all who have served our country.

Today was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine. Highs were seasonal as expected today with a breezy evening around 8 mph. Clouds have begun moving into central Alabama and will stay here through tomorrow. There is a chance for a shower or two tomorrow but any rain should stay in more eastern Alabama.

Highs for tomorrow will reach into the mid 60s and because of the cloud this evening, temperatures in the morning will be a little warmer than they have been so far this week in the upper 40s (still very chilly).

By Monday sunshine will return back into your forecast and stay all the way through Thursday. Highs will be seasonal in the mid to upper 60s with cooler mornings. By Friday rain chances move back into your forecast.

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngIt’s finally Friday! Get ready to enjoy your weekend but be prepared to bundle up. Today started off cool in the upper 30s! This afternoon we saw highs reach in 60s with lots of sunshine.

Tomorrow will be another cooler morning in the upper 30s low 40s. Areas to the north should be aware of frost as you start day. It’s going to be a beautiful Veterans Day with lots of sunshine! Highs for the day will be in the mid 60s with just a light breeze. Later in the afternoon to evening hours clouds will begin to increase.

Sunday expect a partly to mostly cloudy day. There is a small chance for a stray shower but most will not see rain. Sunday night into Monday morning clouds will clear to make for a dry sunny work week. Highs for your week will be in the upper 60s with cooler mornings. By Friday a slight chance of rain moves back into your forecast.

Nice Days… Cool Nights… Thursday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather turned out beautiful after a cloudy and damp start to the day. The rain lastnight and very early this morning is long gone, and additional rain is not expected for the rest of today and tonight. Temperatures will fall into the lower 40s overnight, with a light north breeze.

Friday will feature lots of sunshine, with a high in the middle 60s. We’ll drop back into the lower 40s Friday night under a clear sky, then warm into the upper 60s Saturday afternoon.

A weak surface front will move across the area Sunday, but moisture is too limited for widespread rain. I can’t rule out a stray shower or two, but the risk is pretty low. Highs will remain in the 60s on Sunday.

Next week will feature dry days, with plenty of sunshine. Monday and Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 60s, with lows in the middle 40s. We may return into the lower 70s on Wednesday and Thursday.
