Much Cooler Tomorrow; Rain At Times Over The Latter Half Of The Week

| March 7, 2023 @ 5:41 am

ANOTHER WARM DAY: We are forecasting a high in the 77-82 degree range across Alabama this afternoon, well above the average high of 65 (for Birmingham). Expect a mix of sun and clouds with a few widely scattered showers this afternoon over the southern half of the state.

A shallow layer of colder air will dip into the north/central counties tonight, where the high tomorrow will be in the 58-65 degree range. Far South Alabama will still see a high in the 70s, however. The sky will be mostly cloudy, and rain will move in from the west late in the day and tomorrow night.

Thursday and Friday will be cloudy and cool with occasional rain. No risk of severe storms… Highs will be in the 50s and 60s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: It looks like we will squeeze in a dry day Saturday, but rain returns Sunday afternoon. Some thunder is possible Sunday with a bit of surface based instability involved, but for now we are not expecting any threat of severe storms. The weather stays cool with highs in the 50s and 60s, and lows generally in the 38-45 degree range.

NEXT WEEK: A few lingering showers are possible Monday morning, then the rest of the week is looking generally rain-free with below average temperatures. Lows dip into the 30s over the northern half of the state Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning, and some of the colder spots could touch the freezing mark. But for now it doesn’t look like a widespread or especially damaging freeze. See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.
