Midday Nowcast: Cold with Some Clouds

| January 7, 2022 @ 10:28 am

We continue to deal with upper-level clouds in the Alabama sky, but these are not really impacting our forecast the rest of today. It remains cold with highs in the low 30s in North Alabama, upper 30s and low 40s for Central Alabama, with upper 40s and lower 50s in South Alabama. Tonight, expect a clear and cold night with widespread freezing temperatures as 20s and 30s will cover Alabama.

USA BRIEF: One final storm system will move across the Northwest Friday with heavy coastal rain and heavy mountain snow before the region gets a break through the weekend following a stretch of impactful weather. A winter storm will bring moderate to heavy snow from the Appalachians to the Northeast U.S. through Friday. Bands of heavy lake effect snow will continue downwind of each Great Lake through Friday.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: After the cold start to tomorrow, 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. Severe storms are not in the forecast, but this will be a good rain event as North/Central Alabama will likely see 1-2 inches of rain, with 1/2 to 1 inch for the southern counties. Highs Sunday will be in the upper 50s to low 60s.

NEXT WEEK: Monday and Tuesday will be cold behind the front, with highs in the 40s. Most of the week looks dry, although rain looks to return late in the week on Friday as another cold front approaches. Temperatures next week look fairly seasonal with highs most days in the 50s, and lows in the 30s.
