Saturday Weather Briefing — A Few Showers Possible Today; Rain for Most on Sunday

| January 7, 2023 @ 6:47 am

THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND: A warm front will move northward through the area today that will bring an increase in moisture levels, but at this point, most will stay dry through the daylight hours as a surface low with a cold front will begin approaching the area. A few showers will become possible by the afternoon for the northwest corner of Central Alabama, and will eventually move southeastward to the I-59 corridor by midnight or just after. Highs in the upper 50s to the upper 60s.

Rain will continue pushing across the area on Sunday with the cold front, and will keep most locations damp through the daylight hours. Rain will be exiting the area late and all looks to be dry by midnight. For the north and central parts of the area, we could see 1/2 to 1 inch of rainfall, where the south will range from none to just over 1/4 inch. Highs in the upper 50s to the mid 60s.

THE WORK WEEK AHEAD: High pressure will start working into the area on Monday that will bring us a nice day with mostly clear skies. Highs in the lower 50s to the lower 60s.

A little disturbance will move across the northern parts of the southeast on Tuesday that may squeeze out a few raindrops over the Tennessee Valley and the extreme northern parts of Central Alabama, but with dry air in place, it will remain mainly dry. Highs in the upper 50s to the mid 60s.

High pressure moves back in on Wednesday that will keep us dry with mostly sunny skies. Highs in the upper 50s to the upper 60s.

Another surface low will be pulling a cold front toward Central Alabama on Thursday that will bring rain and thunderstorms back into the forecast. Rain will become possible by the afternoon hours with the heavier storms moving in during the evening and overnight hours. There will be some instability with this system, but it is too early to tell if severe weather will be possible. However, the better dynamics will be close by and a strong low level jet will be in place. We’ll keep you updated. Highs in the upper 50s to the upper 60s.

And at the end of the forecast period on Friday… Rain and storms will move across and eventually exit the eastern half of the area through the morning, but a few wrap-around showers will be possible after that for the northern half of the area. Those will eventually end by midnight. Highs in the lower 50s to the lower 60s.
