| November 12, 2019 @ 11:56 am

As of 11:45 am, all precipitation has moved out of Central Alabama and has pushed into Georgia and the Carolinas. Skies are beginning to clear out in the northwestern corner of the area, but remain mostly cloudy across the rest of the area.

It is still below the freezing mark in a few locations, with Birmingham leading the cold charge at 28 degrees. Troy is the warm spot at 39 degrees. Winds are still pretty breezy out of the north at 10-20 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH. Haleyville had the coldest wind chill reading in Central Alabama at 15 degrees.

A Wind Advisory continues for all of Central Alabama until 5:00 pm this evening. Winds will be strong enough to cause a few limbs or dead, weakened trees to fall. Already had a report from Good Hope of a tree falling on a house earlier this morning.

Skies will continue to clear out during the rest of the afternoon but don’t expect it to warm up any outside. Highs are only expected to reach the mid-30s to the lower 50s across the area from northwest to southeast, but those temperatures will begin a quick drop after sunset.

All of Central Alabama remains in a Freeze Warning through 10:00 am on Wednesday morning as temperatures are expected to drop into the upper teens to the upper 20s across the area from the northwest to southeast for the overnight lows tonight. Winds will be dying down and skies will be clear.

Wednesday will be a much better day as skies will be sunny but those temperatures will remain rather cool. Afternoon highs will only reach the upper 40s to the mid-50s across the area from northwest to southeast. The good news is that wind will not be an issue.
