Very Beautiful But Very Chilly Outdoors At Midday

| January 30, 2018 @ 1:30 pm

It is just an absolutely gorgeous day outside across Central Alabama at this point of your Tuesday, but we are having to put up with some chilly temperatures to enjoy the outdoors.

At 1:00 PM, temperatures were ranging from the lower 40s in the northwestern parts of the area to the lower 50s in the southeast. Birmingham was at 45 degrees, while Eufaula was the warm spot at the time at 51 degrees. Haleyville was the cool spot at 41 degrees… brrr! The good news is that the wind has slacked off some from the gusts we were getting during the overnight hours.

For the rest of the day, we will continue to have clear skies and chilly temperatures, with highs in the lower 40s to the lower 50s. Everyone throughout Central Alabama will be below freezing before the sun rises on Wednesday morning, with overnight lows dropping into the 20s to near 30 degrees underneath clear skies.

Wednesday will be the best day for the remainder of the work week as we’ll have sunny skies across Central Alabama and much warmer temperatures. Afternoon highs will be in the mid-50s to near 60 degrees from north to south, with lows in the upper 30s to the lower 40s. A few clouds will start to move in before midnight and will continue to build ahead of the next rain maker which arrives on Thursday morning.

1990 – Severe thunderstorms in the southeastern U.S. spawned a tornado which destroyed three mobile homes near Blythe GA injuring six persons. A fast moving cold front produced high winds in the western U.S. Winds along the coast of Oregon gusted to 65 mph at Portland, and high winds generated 22 to 26-foot seas which battered the coast. Winds near Reno NV gusted to 78 mph. High winds also buffeted the Central High Plains, with gusts to 94 mph reported at La Mesa CO.
