FIRST ALERT: Chilly night with chance for sprinkles
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Happy Wednesday! Tonight, will remain mostly cloudy with a slight chance for sprinkles. Temperatures are expected to drop to the mid-40s by early this evening and overnight temperatures will be in the upper 30s.
Chilly Thursday: Dry air will continue to filter into the state tonight into tomorrow. We will likely start tomorrow morning off mostly cloudy with temperatures in the mid-30s. It’ll remain breezy with westerly winds at 10-15 mph. When you factor in the temperatures and the wind tomorrow morning, it could feel like it is in the 20s. Dry air will try to squeeze all of the available moisture in the atmosphere. I’m going to hold on to a 10% chance for a few light showers or maybe a few flurries Thursday morning. The best locations to see isolated showers tomorrow include Marion, Lamar, Winston, Fayette, Walker, Cullman, Blount, and Etowah counties. Cloud cover will likely remain stubborn tomorrow. We’ll hold on to a mostly cloudy to a partly sunny sky tomorrow with highs only climbing into the mid-40s. It could trend even colder in north Alabama with highs only in the lower 40s. Make sure you grab the jacket tomorrow! Winds will come from the west-northwest at 10-15 mph with gusts around 20-25 mph. Cloud cover should decrease across Central Alabama from Thursday evening into Thursday night.
Friday will likely bring sunny and dry conditions with high temperatures near and around 50. Expect below-freezing temperatures Friday night and plan to dress in layers for evening plans. Saturday will likely start dry with the chance for rain late in the evening and into Sunday. Saturday, we’ll see temperatures in the mid to upper 50s and temperatures will start Sunday morning in the 40s. Sunday you can expect daytime highs in the low 50s with scattered showers throughout the day and into the evening. Monday will start with temperatures in the 40s as well but daytime highs will be in the upper 50s. Showers are likely both Monday and Tuesday so keep the rain gear nearby and handy.
