A Nice But Cool Early Afternoon, But Rain Moves In Early Saturday

| January 11, 2019 @ 1:42 pm

While nearly all of Central Alabama is getting to bask in the sunlight to help warm these early afternoon temperatures, the north and northwestern parts of the area have some clouds that are blocking out those warming effects of the sun’s rays. Temperatures are currently in the upper 40s to right at 60 degrees across the area from northwest to southeast. The warm spot is Eufaula currently at 60 degrees, while the cool spots are Haleyville and Gadsden at 48 degrees. Birmingham was at 54 degrees at 1:30 pm CST.

For the rest of the afternoon and into the early evening, clouds will continue to be on the increase from the west as our next rain-making system approaches. Afternoon highs will top out in the 50s to just at 60 degrees across the area. For tonight, clouds will continue to increase across the area with skies ending up mostly cloudy. There will be a small chance of a few showers in the northwest corner of the area starting after midnight, while the rest of Central Alabama will stay dry. Overnight lows bottom out in the mid-30s to the lower 40s.

Rain will be likely on Saturday starting off in the northwest in the early morning hours then eventually spreading across the area before the midday hour. Showers will begin to diminish in coverage after sunset, but scattered showers on the backside of the system will remain possible throughout the remainder of the night and into the overnight hours. Afternoon highs will be in the mid-40s to the upper 50s while overnight lows will drop just a little bit into the 40s. Rainfall amounts for all of Saturday will range from right around 0.25 inches in the southeast to just over 0.50 inches in the northwest.
