THIS AFTERNOON: Clouds are gradually increasing across Alabama this afternoon ahead of a disturbance to the west; this feature will bring the chance of a few sprinkles of rain to the state tonight and early tomorrow, but moisture is very limited and most places won’t see any rain. The low tomorrow morning will be close to 40 degrees.
Lingering clouds tomorrow morning will give way to a partly sunny afternoon… the day will be cooler with a high between 55 and 60 degrees over the northern half of the state. The sky will be clear tomorrow night, and some of the colder spots will see a light freeze early Sunday, when temperatures will drop into the 30-35 degree range. Then, during the day Sunday, the sky will be sunny with a high in the low to mid 60s.
NEXT WEEK: An upper ridge over the Gulf of Mexico will build northward into the region, and the week looks rain-free with a warming trend. Look for mostly sunny days and fair nights… the high Monday will be in the upper 60s, followed by low 70s Tuesday and Wednesday. We will be flirting with 80 degree warmth by the end of the week… See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
