Cloudy, Cold, & Light Showers Falling Across Central Alabama

| December 7, 2018 @ 1:44 pm

RADAR CHECK AT 1:25 PM: Light showers continue to fall across a good portion of Central Alabama as we have crossed over into the early afternoon hours on this last workday for the first full work week of December. If it not raining in your location at this point, clouds are what you’ll see if you look to the sky. Temperatures are still rather cool in the northern 2/3rds of the area in the lower 40s to the lower 50s, while we are seeing mid-50s to the lower 60s across the southern 1/3rd. The warm spot is Eufaula at 60 degrees while the cool spots were Haleyville and Alabaster at 43 degrees. Birmingham was just a touch warmer at 45 degrees.

WEATHER FOR THE REST OF YOUR FRIDAY: While we do have a drop off in shower activity across much of the area at this point, more showers are expected to move in across the area later this afternoon and into the early evening hours. Rain chances will be the highest north of the US-80 and I-85 corridors (70-80%) while chances drop as you move south of that (40%-60%). Afternoon highs will top out across the area in the lower 40s in the north to the lower 60s in the south. For tonight, more rain will continue to stream into Central Alabama from the west, and rain will be widespread north of the US-80 and I-85 corridors. Rain chances south of that will be lower as you move south (20-60%). Overnight lows will only drop into the lower to mid-40s across the area.

COLD AND WET THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON SATURDAY: Saturday will not be a nice day at all if you have any outdoor activities. Skies will be cloudy and rain will fall throughout much, if not all, of the day. Don’t expect it to be any warmer as afternoon highs will only reach the lower 40s to near 50 degrees across the area from north to south. Rain continues during the evening and overnight hours with lows in the upper 30s to the mid-40s.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY: 1740 – In early December two weeks of mild and rainy weather culminated in the worst flood in fifty years in the Lower Connecticut River Valley. The Merrimack River swelled to its highest level, and in Maine the raging waters swept away mills, carried off bridges, and ruined highways.
