Quite a cold start to the day, but with dry air mass in place, temperatures this afternoon are surging in to the upper 60s and lower 70s across the state. The sky is full of sunshine this afternoon from one end of the state to the other. It will be another clear and chilly night with lows in the mid to upper 30s by first thing tomorrow morning.
SPRING IS IN THE AIR: An upper air ridge is in place over the Gulf Coast States and that means we are going to stay dry and mainly sunny with a gradual warming trend the rest of this week. Highs tomorrow surge into the 70s area wide with mid 70s Wednesday, and highs closer to 80° Thursday and Friday. This is certainly looking like the best week of weather so far this year, and unusually quiet for March, which is typically the wettest month of the year for much of Alabama.
