We’re Cold at Midday Today, But Parts of Florida & Georgia May Have Icing Issues

We’re Not The Only Ones Dealing With Old Man Winter

For North and Central Alabama, all that we will have to worry about is the frigid temperatures throughout the next few days. The folks to our southeast in southern Georgia and northern Florida will have some wintry precipitation to put up with during the late night hours tonight and through a good bit of the day on Wednesday. It’s a large enough of a threat that the NWS Jacksonville has issued a Winter Storm Watch for all of southeast Georgia, the northern Suwannee Valley, and the Interstate 10 corridor to the west of the metropolitan Jacksonville area. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for counties just to the west of the watch. A mix of light freezing rain, light sleet, and light snow is expected to develop after midnight tonight, and light ice accumulations are possible throughout the watch area.


Conditions At 12:00 PM Across North/Central Alabama

We have mainly clear skies across the area at this point of your Tuesday, with the exception of a couple of small clouds floating over the western parts. We are still very chilly out there, ranging from the mid-20s in the north to the mid-30s in the south. Huntsville is currently at 27 degrees, Birmingham at 28 degrees, and Montgomery at 34 degrees. The warm spot is currently Eufaula at 37 degrees. Winds are mostly calm across the area at this point.


Weather For The Rest Of Your Tuesday

Clouds will be on the increase through the remainder of the afternoon and early evening hours, and afternoon highs will be slightly warmer than yesterday. Afternoon highs will range from the upper 20s in the north to the upper 30s to near 40 degrees in the south. For tonight, it will be partly to mostly cloudy throughout the area and still bitterly cold. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid-teens in the north to the lower 20s in the south.

We continue to have a Hard Freeze Warning in effect throughout the Central Alabama counties from now until Thursday morning at 8:00 AM, and a Hard Freeze Watch in effect until Saturday morning at 8:00 AM.


Just A Tad Warmer For Your Wednesday

Skies will start of mostly cloudy in the morning at daybreak, but will clear out by the time we reach the late afternoon hours. Clear skies will continue throughout the rest of the evening and overnight hours. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 20s in the north to the lower 40s in the south. Overnight lows will be in the lower teens to the lower 20s.
