| January 14, 2023 @ 6:35 am

THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND: Troughing will be replaced by incoming high pressure on Saturday that will lead to clearing skies and calming winds. Highs will top out in the 40s across the area, maybe toughing 50º in the extreme southeastern portions of Central Alabama.

Sunday will start off chilly with early morning lows in the 20s across the area, but with mostly sunny skies, we’ll make a nice recovery as highs will make it into the mid to upper 50s.

THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WORK WEEK: Moisture will begin to build out ahead of a low moving through the upper Midwest on Monday, that will bring an increase of clouds and the potential for a few showers during the evening and overnight hours. Highs in the upper 50s to the upper 60s.

More showers will move through Central Alabama on Tuesday, especially during the pre-dawn and morning hours, with much of the activity diminishing through the rest of the day. Highs in the mid 60s to the mid 70s.

Another wave of rain and thunder will form off to our west very early on Wednesday and begin to move into the area by late morning to midday. Rain and storms will be likely through the rest of the day, and we will have to watch for a few strong storms, but it is too early for exact details on any severe threat. Highs will be in the upper 60s to the mid 70s.

A cold front will move into the area by Thursday morning and will progress across Central Alabama and exiting the area by the evening hours. Once again, we may have to watch for a few strong storms, especially over the southern half of the area. Highs in the mid 60s to the lower 70s.

And at the end of the forecast period on Friday… Skies will begin to slowly get brighter as clouds will be moving out of the area. We’ll have partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 50s to the upper 60s.

ON THIS DAY IN 1989: A winter storm spread snow and sleet and freezing rain from the Middle Mississippi Valley to the northeastern U.S. Freezing rain in West Virginia caused fifteen traffic accidents in just a few minutes west of Charleston. Tennessee was deluged with up to 7.5 inches of rain. Two inches of rain near Clarksville TN left water in the streets as high as car doors.
