FIRST ALERT: First frost of the season possible for central Alabama Sunday morning
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s cooling off quickly and already in the lower 40s across many cities along the highway 278 corridor. I hope you protected or brought inside your sensitive plants, and that you keep your pets warm or bring them inside tonight.
A FROST ADVISORY is in effect for all of central Alabama between 3:00 a.m and 7:00 a.m. Sunday. Lows in the lower to middle 30s for areas under the advisory. Don’t forget to change your clocks back tonight, batteries in detectors, and your weather radio too. Warming up quickly on Sunday afternoon and reaching the middle 60s most places and mostly sunny. North winds at 5-10 mph generally. The weather will be great for taking down Halloween decorations.
The models agree with the forecast on Monday and Tuesday and then diverge in ways after that. 40s for lows return, along with highs in the lower 70s both days. We will see more sunshine on Monday and increasing clouds on Tuesday. On Wednesday, we could see mostly cloudy skies, lows near 50 degrees and a high in the lower 70s.
Thursday through next weekend is where the data disagrees. The GFS model has a 30% chance for rain on Thursday, cooler temperatures, and the bulk of the rain with our next big thing coming in late Friday. The EURO only has rain on Thursday, higher coverage, and then dry after that. The models are a little more on track with temperatures by Friday and Saturday, but the GFS is way colder by next Sunday. For now, we will blend the data, until the forecast becomes more united amongst the models.
