A Quick Look At Your Thursday Night Across Central Alabama At 8PM

| February 16, 2017 @ 7:58 pm

Skies are absolutely clear across Central Alabama, a great night to go out and look up at the stars… just be sure to bundle up a little bit. At 7:33 PM, temperatures across the area are ranging from the lower 40s to the mid 50s. Montgomery is currently the warm spot at 54º, while Cullman is the cool spot in the area, at 42º.

Most areas will stay above freezing tonight, with lows ranging from the mid to upper 30s. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few of the colder spots dip below freezing, or even into the 20s. Winds for the overnight period will be light, averaging around 1-3 MPH out of the southwest.

Looking ahead to the forecast for Friday, the day will start off chilly but absolutely beautiful. Temperatures will be in the 30s at daybreak, but you should enjoy an outstanding sunrise. As the day progresses, clouds will start to move in around midday and skies will be partly cloudy by 5PM. Afternoon highs will top out in the mid 60s to the lower 70s across Central Alabama.

A shortwave will be approaching the area during the evening hours, and will move across Central Alabama from southwest to northeast during the overnight hours. According to the latest run of the NAM-4k, showers could start as early in the southwestern part of the area around 8PM-10PM, and reach the I-65 corridor by midnight-2AM. It will not be an all-day rain event on Saturday, but you can expect occasional showers and a few claps of thunder could be possible. No severe weather is expected throughout the event, and rain should be completely out of the area by Saturday night. Lows on Friday night will be in the mid to the upper 40s. Temperatures for Saturday will be in the lower to mid 60s for highs, and the mid to upper 40s for overnight lows.

Skies will start off partly cloudy on Sunday morning, but clearing can be expected throughout the day. Temperatures will be well above normal, not only for Sunday, but for Monday through Wednesday as well. Highs on Sunday will be in the lower to mid 70s.
