Cold, Clouds, Gusty Winds, Low Wind Chills, Even a Flake or Two of Snow for Central Alabama

| November 12, 2019 @ 8:39 am

Satellite, radar, and temps at 8:30 this morning.

Temperatures are now below freezing over nearly the northwestern half of Alabama at this hour. Readings are below freezing as far south as Calera in Shelby County.

Clouds are hanging tough across the area, but sunshine should return later this morning. Despite the sun, temperatures will struggle to get above freezing across the Tennessee Valley and won’t get out of the 30s along and north of I-20.

Winds will continue to average 10-20 mph gusting at times to over 30 mph. This will push wind chill values into the single digits as far south as I-20 this morning. Wind chills in the teens will be common.

You might get lucky to see a snowflake or two, or perhaps some clumped together, but the precipitation shield has pushed down into the I-86/I-65 Corridor in South Central and South Alabama.

Get ready for a substantial freeze tonight. Readings will average between 18-20F north of US-278, 21-23F north of US-80 and in the middle and upper 20s all the way to the coast.
