After Midday, Skies Have Mainly Cleared Out

| January 24, 2020 @ 1:53 pm

As of 1:40 pm, skies have cleared out across much of Central Alabama with the exception of some wrap-around clouds on the bottom side of the low that is passing by well off to our north. There are no raindrops associated with those clouds, but they are hindering the sunlight and keeping it from reaching the surface somewhat. Temperatures were in the mid-40s to the lower 60s across the area. The cool spot was Haleyville under the cloud cover at 45 degrees, while several locations in the southern parts of the area were at 61 degrees with plenty of sunshine. Birmingham was at 55 degrees.

For the rest of the daylight hours, skies will be mainly sunny over the southern two-thirds of the area, while we will see some clouds over the northern-third blocking out the sun at times. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 40s to the lower 60s across the area. For tonight, those clouds will continue to hang around the northern parts of the area while the southern parts will have clear skies. Overnight lows will fall into the 30s across the area.

It will be the same story with those pesky clouds continuing to hang around the area over the northern parts while the southern parts will see plenty of sunshine for your Saturday. Afternoon highs will remain cool, only reaching the upper 40s to the mid-50s across the area.
