Cold Front Pushing Across Northwest Alabama at this Hour

| February 11, 2018 @ 12:29 pm

Here is a quick look at the Alabama Weather Situation as we have passed the noon hour.

A plume of heavy rain and some thunder continues across Southeast Alabama early this afternoon behind a strong line of thunderstorms that is pushing eastward across the Florida Panhandle. Those strong storms are approaching Panama City at this hour.

The good news is that the severe weather threat has ended for Alabama and the rest of the U.S. this afternoon according to the SPC’s latest severe weather outlook.

Flood watches remain in effect until late this afternoon for much of the southeastern half of Alabama, roughly southeast of a line from Cedar Bluff to Alexandria to Childersburg to Selma and Thomasville.

Scattered showers are filling in and becoming heavier behind the main rain area in areas southeast of I-59. This activity is ahead of a cold front that has pushed through the Quad Cities of Northwest Alabama. There is a fine line of showers right along the front. Watch for that feature’s passage and notice the windshift and drop in dewpoint and temperature behind it.

the front should reach Tuscaloosa around 3 p.m., Birmingham around 5:30 and Anniston around 8 p.m.

Temperatures are in the lower 60s northwest of I-59 and middle and upper 60s to the southeast. Behind the front, temperatures will fall into the 50s this afternoon.

We will all be in the 40s overnight tonight. There could be an isolated shower overnight, but the rain should end for the most part when the front arrives.

High pressure will build in for the first part of the week. This will lessen, but won’t eliminate, the chance of showers. Mild weather will return for midweek, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70F Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
