Midday Nowcast: Mainly Sunny, Not as Cold

| January 4, 2022 @ 10:41 am

After the cold start to the day, we are seeing plenty of sunshine warming up us into the low 50s this afternoon.

There are a few more clouds across South Alabama, but even there, those are not impacting the forecast. Dry weather continues tomorrow with highs in the mid to upper 50s, but clouds will increase late in the day.

RAIN RETURNS: Another cold front will bring periods of light rain to the state Thursday. It looks like the precipitation should begin as a “wintry mix” over the Tennessee Valley of far North Alabama Thursday morning, but for Central Alabama we should see a cold rain. Temperature will be in the 40s and 50s, and once the front passes your locations, temperatures will begin to drop into the 30s by the afternoon.

FRIDAY: Very cold air flows into Alabama and by Friday morning, we should see lows down in the teens and 20s across the northern half of the state; wind chills could be closer to 10°. Friday will be sunny and cold with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Saturday morning will be cold with lows back in the 20s, but the day will be sunny and warmer with highs back in the mid-50s. Clouds begin to increase Saturday night ahead of the next front that will bring rain and some storms back to Alabama on Sunday. For now severe storms are not in the forecast. Highs Sunday will be in the low 60s.
