Clouds Hang Around; Not Much Rain Today

| February 13, 2018 @ 6:36 am

THIS MORNING: Temperatures have changed little across Alabama over the past 18 hours. We have mostly 40s over the northern half of the state, but Dothan reports 61 degrees just before daybreak. They are south of a stalled surface front, representing the leading edge of shallow, cold air that covered North and Central Alabama yesterday. The front will dissipate today, and temperatures won’t be as cold. We will reach the 50s by afternoon, and some places will see low 60s, mainly along and south of I-20.
