Beautiful, Breezy, & A Little Cool At Midday

| January 9, 2019 @ 12:03 pm

As we make our way to the midday hour on your Wednesday, skies across Central Alabama appear to be crystal clear on the latest visible satellite image. As a matter of fact, the closest clouds to the area are located down over the Gulf of Mexico a little way offshore of the Gulf Coasts of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. It is breezy at times with winds currently averaging 10-15 MPH out of the northwest. Those winds will make the current temperatures in the mid-40s to the mid-50s across the area feel a few degrees cooler. The warm spot is Eufaula at 57 degrees, the only station in the upper 50s, while the cool spot is Haleyville at 46 degrees, the only station still in the 40s.

WEATHER FOR THE REST OF YOUR WEDNESDAY
The rest of the afternoon and into the early evening hours will remain brilliant and just on the cool side. We’ll have nearly maximum sunshine and a little breeze out of the northwest around 10-15 MPH. Afternoon highs should make it up into the lower 50s to right at 60 degrees across the area from northwest to southeast. It will be a chilly night across the area tonight and through the overnight hours with mainly clear skies. Lows will dip down into the mid-20s to the lower 30s.

EVEN COOLER ON THURSDAY
While we’ll once again have plenty of sunshine with one or two passing clouds, temperatures will be around 7-10 degrees cooler than today. Afternoon highs will only be in the mid-40s to right around 50 degrees across the area from northwest to southeast.
