| March 5, 2018 @ 1:47 pm

Conditions Across Central Alabama At 1:40 PM

We are continuing to see scattered light showers out there over parts of Central Alabama as we have passed the midday hour on your Monday. Temperatures are currently ranging from 54 degrees at Cullman to 73 degrees at Selma. Birmingham was sitting at 66 degrees.

More Showers & A Few Rumbles Of Thunder Possible Tonight

Latest HRRR Simulated Radar valid through 7AM Tuesday morning.

We’ll continue to have scattered showers to move across much of Central Alabama through the remainder of the afternoon hours, but we may have a short window of rain-free conditions during the evening. The latest HRRR solution is painting a window from roughly 5PM-7PM before heavier rain and a few embedded thunderstorms move into the western parts of the area from Mississippi. The activity will weaken some as it moves deeper into the area, and most of the coverage will shift to the southern-half of the area by sunrise on Tuesday. Today’s highs will top out in the lower 60s to the lower 70s from north to south, with mid-40s to the upper 50s for the lows.

Tuesday Starts with Rain But Ends With Sunshine

Latest NAM Simulated Radar solution valid at 12PM Tuesday.

We’ll start off with showers and a few embedded claps of thunder across much of Central Alabama at daybreak, but those will make their way out of the area by the early afternoon hours on Tuesday, and skies are expected to clear pretty quickly once that happens. Rain could be out of the Birmingham area as early as 9AM-10AM, and have mostly clear skies by noon. The cooler air will be delayed a little bit from the passage of the cold front, and afternoon highs will still make it into the lower to mid-60s. The cooler air starts to move in for the evening hours, and lows will dip into the mid-30s to the lower 40s under mainly clear skies.
