HOW’S THE WEATHER OUT THERE AT MIDDAY

Other than a few high clouds wrapping around the backside of a low-pressure system that is nailing the southern Atlantic coast with ice and snow, North and Central Alabama is mainly clear at this point on your Wednesday. Nearly every reporting station in the area is above freezing at 12:08 PM, but Muscle Shoals, Decatur, and Albertville are still coming in at or just below freezing. Temperatures are ranging from the lower 30s in the north to the lower 40s in the south.

A cold front moves through the area during the late night and overnight hours, bringing a reinforcing shot of cold air. Overnight lows will bottom out in the lower teens in the north to the lower 20s in the south.
