Flurries & Cold Weather
Today has been a day of falling temperatures. We started the day off in the upper 50s, but cold air is spilling into the River Region behind and intensifying low pressure system that will deliver a historic snow storm to the Mid-Atlantic states. Temperatures have fallen into the 30s in most locations and we are going to see lows tonight mainly around the freezing mark. We forecast a range of 28-34F across South-Central Alabama.
We are seeing light rain persist across the state, and with the cold air, we are seeing some snow flurries mixing in and that is making for a little bit of excitement. However, no impacts expected and certainly no accumulations across the southern half of Alabama. There has been accumulating snow across North Alabama, but for South Alabama, just raw and dreary conditions. A wind advisory is in effect until midnight, as gusty winds of 15-30 mph will continue. These gusty winds could bring down some small limbs.
For the weekend, we start of chilly tomorrow, and temperatures are not expected to warm all that much. We are going to see cloudy conditions to start the day, then gradual clearing by the afternoon. It will be another breezy day with winds of 10-20 mph out of the northwest. Highs tomorrow should reach the lower and mid-40s.
As the sky goes clear late Saturday and the winds go calm, we are going to experience a very cold night, with mid-20s for most spots across South-Central Alabama, and there could be some lower 20s in spots. However, under an abundance of sunshine Sunday, highs will climb into the lower 50s. By Monday, we should see 60s back in the forecast.
Stay warm tonight and have a wonderful weekend!
