2 min read

BLUE SKY: As advertised, we have sunshine in full supply across Alabama this afternoon as a very dry airmass has pushed into the state. Tonight will be clear and cold with lows in the 25-35 degree range early tomorrow morning.

WEEKEND WARM-UP: The weather will stay dry over the weekend with a warming trend. With a sunny sky tomorrow, highs will be in the 50s and 60s. A disturbance will bring a few clouds Sunday, but the air will be too dry for any rain for most of the state. A few showers could show up near the Gulf Coast and the Florida Panhandle, however. Temperatures reach the 60s statewide Sunday afternoon.

NEXT WEEK: Monday and Tuesday will be dry and mild with highs in the 60s and 70s. A few showers are possible over North Alabama Wednesday, and rain and storms will be more likely by Thursday. See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.

Still no sign of any bitterly cold, Arctic air for Alabama through mid-February.
