Freeze Warning Tonight; Rain Returns This Weekend

| March 8, 2018 @ 3:25 pm

ANOTHER COLD NIGHT AHEAD: A freeze warning is in effect for all of Alabama tonight, with the exception of Mobile and Baldwin Counties…

Most locations across North/Central Alabama will see a low between 25 and 30 degrees, but colder pockets will visit the lower 20s. With a calm wind, widespread frost is likely. Then, we warm nicely during the day tomorrow with a sunny sky; the high will be in the low to mid 60s.

RAIN RETURNS OVER THE WEEKEND: Clouds will increase Saturday as moist air is pulled northward into the state, and a few showers are possible, mostly the afternoon. But, the most widespread rain over the weekend comes Saturday night into Sunday as a surface low moves through North Alabama. Rain amounts should be in the 1-2 inch range, and while some thunder is likely, the overall severe weather threat looks low for the northern half of the state. The high Saturday will be in the 67-70 degree range, Sunday’s high will be in the low 60s.

NEXT WEEK: An upper trough sets up again over the eastern states, setting the stage for below average temperatures through the week for Alabama and the Deep South. In fact, lows will be at or below freezing each morning Monday through Thursday; highs will be in the 50s through Wednesday, with 60s Thursday and Friday. For now the week look dry. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

DROUGHT MONITOR: South Alabama remains dry, with “moderate drought” conditions there, based on the new drought monitor released this morning.
