FIRST ALERT: Below freezing temperatures into your Monday
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Happy Holidays everyone! The hard freeze warning in place by the National Weather Service has been extended until Monday morning with temperatures still below freezing to end the weekend. Expect an overnight low in the low 20s and teens. We will continue to see calm winds this evening around 5 mph with mostly clear skies. Expect more cloud coverage on Monday.
Monday and Tuesday: If you are headed back to work tomorrow morning, plan to dress warmly and in layers. Temperatures will begin to rise starting Monday with daytime highs now above freezing and in the low 40s and upper 30s. Expect partly sunny skies to start the week with a chance for some sprinkles in the afternoon. We could see some flurries Monday night if there is enough moisture, I don’t think this is very liekly. It certainly will get cold enough with an overnight low in the mid to upper 20s. We’ll see decreasing cloud coverage Monday night and will gradually become clear. Tuesday will bring more sunshine with mostly sunny skies and a daytime high in the upper 40s. Expect winds to remain calm with partly cloudy skies Tuesday night. Temperatures Tuesday night will drop into the upper 20s and low 30s.
Beyond Tuesday: We’ll see a warming trend continue throughout the week with temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s by Wednesday. Overnight lows will be above freezing into Thursday. Expect the low temperatures to be in the 40s under partly cloudy skies. Continue to layer up, keep in mind winter weather safety tips, and check in on your loved ones, as it will still be cold through the middle of the week! Thursday is expected to be mostly sunny with daytime highs in the 60s! We are seeing the chance for rain on Friday (12/30) and on Saturday, New Year’s Eve, with a chance for rain showers as we bring the new year on Sunday. We’ll be monitoring weather models and giving you the latest!
