Afternoon highs will reach the mid-50s to the lower 70s from north to south, with overnight lows dropping into the upper 40s to the upper 50s.

WEDNESDAY WILL BE A GRAY DAY, EVEN THOUGH IT’S THE DAY OF LOVE
Cloudy skies will continue throughout Valentine’s Day, and there will be a risk for scattered showers mainly for the northern half of Central Alabama. Now a stray shower or two may make it south of a line from Tuscaloosa to Calera to Roanoke, but that looks to be highly unlikely at this time. Chances will be slightly higher for locations in the extreme northern parts of the area (along and north of a line from Hamilton to Blountsville to Centre.
