A Decent Midday Across Central Alabama, Rain Returns Tomorrow

| December 18, 2018 @ 11:49 am

CONDITIONS ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA AT 11:45 AM: We have plenty of sunshine across the area at this point before the noon hour with the exception of some stray clouds in the northeastern parts of the area and a few thin clouds across the southern parts. Temperatures at this point were in the mid-50s to the lower 60s across the area with Birmingham sitting at 57 degrees. Several spots are tied at 61 degrees as the warm spot, while the cool spot was Gadsden at 54 degrees.

WEATHER FOR THE REST OF YOUR TUESDAY: Skies will continue to be mostly clear during the rest of the afternoon and into the early evening hours, but we’ll have some high clouds continue to stream in from the west mainly over the southern half of the area. More clouds will move in later tonight and through the overnight hours ahead of our next rainmaking system that will bring rain chances to the forecast by Wednesday Afternoon. Today’s highs will be in the lower to mid-60s with overnight lows in the mid-30s to the lower 40s.

RAIN RETURNS TO CENTRAL ALABAMA ON WEDNESDAY: Latest model runs are showing that we could have a few showers start to enter the southwestern parts of Central Alabama during the afternoon and into the early evening hours, but rain will become likely during the evening and persist through the late night and overnight hours. Skies will start off partly to mostly cloudy during the morning hours but will quickly become mainly cloudy by the afternoon. Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 50s to the lower 60s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 40s. Rainfall amounts throughout the day to midnight should be around 0.25 inches and less.

QUICK PEEK AT CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY: While Christmas Eve is within the seven-day forecast period, Christmas Day is out in Voodoo Land at this point. The forecast for Christmas Eve looks to be dry with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the lower 50s to the lower 60s across the area. The trend for Christmas Day shows dry conditions with more clouds than sun with highs in the mid-50s to the lower 60s. We can only continue to sing along with Bing Crosby when we hear White Christmas on the radio because 2018 will not be our year for one in Central Alabama.
