After the frigid start to the day, we are seeing a nice warm with tons of sunshine across the Alabama landscape today.
The 20s from this morning have been replaced with 40s and 50s this afternoon, overall a great looking final day of the work week.
Tonight will be another clear and cold one with mid and upper 20s expected by first thing tomorrow morning.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Clouds return to the state tomorrow, but the day itself will be dry with highs in the mid and upper 50s. Areas of light rain return to the state tomorrow night and into Sunday, with most of the rain shifting into South Alabama during the day Sunday. Again, the surface low with this system will be to the south of the area, so no severe storms, and likely no thunder. Rain amounts should be under 1/2 inch. Highs Sunday will be in the mid to upper 50s.
