FIRST ALERT: Freezing start to our first day of spring
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Happy Sunday! Temperatures will drop overnight into the 20s. Expect light to calm northeast winds around 5 mph Monday. We are also under a Freeze Warning. It is in effect now and expires at 10 AM Monday morning. Expect overnight low temperatures below freezing area wide as low as 21 degrees. We will likely see temperatures in the low 30s by 10 PM.
Freezing Temperatures Monday morning: Since we are dealing with all this cold weather, let’s start with the good news. This upcoming week does warm back up! Monday, however, looks cold with temperatures Monday morning in the mid to upper 20s. Monday is also the first day of spring! There is a chance for morning frost to develop with the frigid temperatures and calmer winds. Be sure to give yourself extra time to warm up those cars in the morning before heading to work or school and plan to dress in layers!
We are expecting mostly sunny to sunny skies with daytime highs in the mid to upper 50s and a few good days of drier weather after that. I can tell you, the cold sticks around through Tuesday.
Freeze Watch Tuesday: Monday night and Tuesday morning temperatures will likely drop near freezing. A Freeze Watch is in effect on Tuesday morning at 1 AM until 8 AM. Temperatures ranging from 27 degrees to 32 degrees are possible. Tuesday afternoon, we will likely have daytime highs in the low 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. Tuesday night we will finally have above freezing temperatures with an overnight low around 45 degrees. Wednesday looks dry with temperatures possibly reaching the low 70s, and Thursday we could have daytime highs in the 80s! These temperatures will definitely help it to feel more like spring!
Next Big Thing: Our next chance for rain and possible storms is Friday. The severe threat potential at this time remains low, but I am not ruling out the chance for periods of heavy rainfall, gusty winds and a thunderstorm.
