We’re Dry With Some Clearing Across Central Alabama At Midday

| January 8, 2019 @ 11:16 am

CONDITIONS ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA AT 11:05 AM
At this point on your Tuesday morning, radar is free from any rain falling over Central Alabama. Clouds are starting to decrease across the area as well as clearing is starting to work in over the southwestern parts of the area. There are breaks in the cloud cover over the rest of the area so it’s not an all gloomy day. Temperatures are well above seasonal norms in the lower 60s to near 70 degrees across the area. The warm spot is currently Tuscaloosa at 72 degrees but I believe that could be an erroneous reading with all of the surrounding sites in the lower to mid-60s. The cool spot is Sylacauga at 60 degrees.

WEATHER FOR THE REST OF YOUR TUESDAY
While we continue to have a very small risk of a stray light shower or a few sprinkles, it looks like those chances will diminish later this evening. Skies will begin to clear out slowly from the northwest to the southeast and afternoon highs will top out in the mid-60s to the lower 70s across the area. Clouds will continue to decrease through the evening and late night hours and temperatures will begin to quickly cool. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid-30s to the mid-40s.

PLENTY OF SUN BUT MUCH COOLER ON WEDNESDAY
“Hump Day” will feature mainly clear and sunny skies throughout the day with the small possibility of a passing cloud or two. Unfortunately, the milder temperatures we have seen will be gone and much cooler weather has returned. Afternoon highs will be around 15 degrees cooler than today, only reaching the upper 40s to the mid-50s across the area. Skies will be clear for the late night and overnight hours, with lows in the upper 20s to the lower 30s.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE WILL BE HERE FOR THE WEEKEND
We’ll have a system that will begin to affect our weather on late Friday through the morning hours on Sunday, bringing more rainfall to the area. Latest projections from the WPC suggests we could see totals from 0.25 inches in the southwestern parts of the area to nearly 1.00 inches in the northwest. Since this will be a lighter rainfall event than we have seen with the last couple of big rainmakers, flooding issues are not expected.
