Dry Weather For Alabama Through The Weekend

| February 21, 2020 @ 5:43 am

COLD START: Temperatures are generally in the upper 20s and low 30s across North/Central Alabama this morning; the sky is clear and the air is dry. Today will feature sunshine in full supply… the high will be in the 47-50 degree range. Tonight will be clear and cold again; lows will be in the 20s early tomorrow morning.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The dry weather continues. Look for a sunny sky tomorrow with a high in the upper 50s, followed by a partly sunny day Sunday. The high Sunday afternoon will be in the low 60s. Clouds will increase Sunday night.

NEXT WEEK: Monday will be a mostly cloudy day with occasional showers; possibly a thunderstorm. No risk of severe storms, and rain amounts should be 1/2 inch or less… the high will be in the low 60s. Then, Tuesday looks dry and mild with upper 60s… it should be the warmest day of the week. Then, on Wednesday, a cold front will bring a chance of showers, and temperatures falling into the 40s during the day. Thermal profiles suggest we could see a few snow flurries Wednesday evening before dry air takes over (no impact). Then, dry weather is the story Thursday and Friday with cold mornings and cool afternoons. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
