Saturday Weather Briefing — Clearing Skies & A Very Cool Final Spring Weekend of ’23

| March 18, 2023 @ 5:00 am

We’re starting off with all the Tennessee Valley and the northern portions of Central Alabama under a Freeze Warning until 9 am this morning. We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds through the daylight hours, with highs only making it into the lower to mid 50s.

Sunday morning will start off even colder as lows could dip down into the mid 20s. For now, nearly all of North/Central Alabama is under a Freeze Watch, but most likely, a good portion of the watch area will be upgraded to a warning. Skies will be sunny, but highs will only max out in the lower 40s to the lower 50s.

Colder temperatures will hang around on Monday as widespread front will be possible before sunrise. Afternoon highs will be a touch warmer, in the lower 50s to right at 60 degrees underneath sunny skies.

Winds will swap around to out of the south on Tuesday as a system will be forming off to our west. Some clouds will move in late, but we’ll stay dry. Highs in the upper 50s to the mid 60s.

Much warmer on Wednesday as more warm and humid air gets pulled up from the gulf, while the system will move across the Tennessee Valley and the extreme northern parts of Central Alabama, bringing some showers. The rest of the area will stay dry with variable cloudiness. Highs in the upper 60s to the mid 70s.

While rain will be off to our west and northwest, we’ll be dry in Central Alabama on Thursday during the daylight hours. Clouds will move in late, and we can’t rule out a shower before midnight. Highs in the upper 70s to the mid 80s.

And at the end of the forecast period on Friday… a cold front will be moving in our direction that will bring an increase of clouds. While the GFS doesn’t show it, the European model has rain moving in and through the area late. We’ll side with the Euro at this point. Highs in the lower 70s to the mid 50s.
