FIRST ALERT: Cold rain overnight into Tuesday, more freezing temperatures late week
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: A cold rain will continue to overspread the area overnight. You’ll want to factor in extra drive time for tomorrow morning, and plan for a rainy/dreary start to the day. Temperatures will struggle to break out of the 40s tomorrow, with rain continuing through lunchtime. The rain won’t exit east Alabama until mid-afternoon. We could receive over an inch of rain in many areas over the next 24 hours. The clouds will linger into tomorrow night, with lows in the middle 30s.
We will have big improvements on Wednesday, with a mostly sunny sky returning. Highs will reach the low 50s on Wednesday, but plan on more freezing temperatures for Wednesday night, with lows in the 20s. This colder pattern will continue on Thursday and Friday. High temperatures each day will approach 50º, with lows at night tumbling into the 20s. Plan for more freezing temperatures to start, with frost likely.
THE WEEKEND: We will be tracking a system over the Gulf this weekend, but it looks like all of the precipitation will stay well south of our area. Plan on a continuation of the cold/dry setup, with highs near 50º through the weekend, with lows at night at or below freezing. Temperatures could drop as low as 25º some areas Monday morning.
