It continues to be cold and mostly cloudy across Central Alabama at this mid-afternoon update. For now, radar looks to be clear of any showers, but a sprinkle or two may be occurring somewhere north of I-20 and east of I-65. There are a few spots where the temperatures are not that bad, but that will change throughout the afternoon and evening. As of the 2 pm roundup, temperatures were in the upper 30s to the upper 60s. The cold spot is Haleyville at a frigid 37º with a 34º wind chill. The warm spot was Troy at 67º, but with gusty winds, it feels like 57º. Birmingham has dropped to 47º.
Skies will start to slowly clear from west to east later this afternoon and through the evening, but that will only allow those temperatures to drop more quickly during the late-night and overnight hours. Most will see a freeze except for the southeastern parts of the area as lows are forecast to dip into the mid 20s to the mid 30s.
Sunday will be a much brighter day across Central Alabama as skies are projected to be mainly sunny. The only problem is that afternoon highs will be well below normal for this time of year. Highs in the upper 40s to the mid 50s across the area.
The Atlantic Basin is free from any disturbances that look to have the potential of becoming tropical or subtropical in nature, and nothing is expected to form within the next five days. Only 17 more full days left in the Atlantic Hurricane Season for this year, as it ends on November 30th.
