Other Than A Few Fair-Weather Clouds, It’s Very Nice At Midday

| May 13, 2019 @ 12:17 pm

With high pressure located to our north over the western parts of Kentucky, we’ll have winds out of the northwest and eventually shifting out of the north later this evening across Central Alabama. Those winds are pumping in much drier air than what we have seen over the past several days, making the midday hour across the area feel much more refreshing. Temperatures are currently in the mid-60s to the mid-70s across the area underneath mostly sunny skies. Birmingham was at a comfortable 72 degrees while several locations were tied at 75 degrees for the warm spot. Haleyville was the cool spot at 66 degrees.

Skies will stay mostly sunny throughout the afternoon and into the early evening hours. Afternoon highs will be in the mid-70s to the lower 80s across the area from northwest to southeast. Skies will clear out tonight and lows will dip down into the upper 40s to the mid-50s.

Tuesday will be a brilliant day that will actually be a couple of degrees cooler than today. Skies will be mainly sunny with afternoon highs staying in the 70s across the area. Skies will clear once again for Tuesday night and through the overnight hours with lows once again dipping into the upper 40s to the mid-50s.
