BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - First Alert for another cold start tomorrow with temperatures ranging from the middle 20s to the lower 30s. I expect to see more frost in the morning and not much of a wind chill because the winds will be light. Tomorrow afternoon we get to enjoy milder temperatures around normal in the middle to upper 50s. Winds will flow from the southeast at 5-10 mph.

Our Next Big Thing is the arrival of a strong cold front on Friday. While we can’t rule out a shower, most places still look mainly dry. Temperatures will start the day in the 30s, but cold winds will increase and only allow afternoon readings to climb into the 40s. Expect a colder feel and cloudy skies. First Alert for winds to persist through Saturday and create a feel in the single digits, especially in the morning hours. Actual lows will be in the teens and lower 20s. Protect pets and drip your faucets! Saturday afternoon will be windy, sunshine returns, and the feel will be in the 20s and 30s. 20s to start on Sunday morning but afternoon readings will be much more enjoyable in the lower 50s.

A ridge of high pressure develops early next week which will mean a warming trend and 60s returning for us. Long range data indicates a heavy rain maker around the 3-4th of February and once that cold front passes through, it looks chilly again, with hints at wintry precipitation after that. Frequent weather updates on all platforms including the WBRC First Alert Weather App.

Stay warm.
