FIRST ALERT: Temperatures below freezing later this week
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: The sky remains cloudy, with a cold north wind tonight. The wind chill has dropped into the low 30s in areas to the northwest. Plan for lows in the middle 30s, with wind chills in the 20s to start our Wednesday. It is going to remain chilly throughout the day, with highs struggling to reach 50 degrees. The sky will remain mostly cloudy early on, with some breaks in the afternoon, and especially the evening. Plan for frost and freezing temperatures Thursday morning, with lows in the 20s.
FIRST ALERT FOR A STRETCH OF COLD WEATHER: You will want to make sure everything is properly winterized, because the cold air is here to stay for a while. Temperatures on Thursday will only top out in the 40s, with more freezing temperatures in the 20s Thursday night. We will have dry weather and sunshine for Thursday.
THE WEEKEND: The below average temperatures will continue through the end of the workweek and weekend. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will feature mostly sunny weather, with highs ranging from upper 40s to low 50s. Temperatures at night will also drop below freezing. Monday morning will be one of the colder starts, with temperatures as low as 23º in some areas! Long range guidance is also showing the possibility of wet weather returning by Thanksgiving. This is still far off, and a lot could change, but I want to give you the First Alert on what we’re tracking. We will post lots of updates on the First Alert Weather App and tune-in for weather/traffic on Good Day Alabama.
