Another bitter cold night can be expected with lows into the lower teens. A north wind around 5-10 mph will produce single digit wind chills into Sunday morning. That wind could be stronger over northeastern AL, and a wind chill advisory remains in effect for Jackson, Marshall, and DeKalb Counties. Wind chills as low as -5° are possible through 9 a.m. Sunday.
Pets should be inside tonight, and you may want to leave a few faucets dripping as well. Drip both hot and cold lines.
We’ll see mostly sunny skies early Sunday; clouds should increase for the afternoon. It will be another cold day, but the wind should be at 5 mph or less. Highs will be in the low/mid 30s.
Temperatures drop back into the 20s during the evening hours, and lows should bottom out around 20° Monday morning. We’ll be warmer Monday afternoon with mostly sunny skies throughout the day. Highs should rebound into the mid 40s. Lows will stay above freezing overnight, and our warming trend will continue through the middle of the week.
Highs Tuesday will be into the upper 50s with 60s expected through at least Friday. This warmer weather will come with a chance for rain…and only rain, no snow/ice. Scattered showers will develop Tuesday night and continue Wednesday.
We’ll see plenty of cloud cover through the end of the week, but highs could be closer to 70°. Isolated showers are possible Thursday with higher chances Fri-Sun.
There is still some uncertainty surrounding which weekend day will be the wettest, but another cold front is expected during that time. Check back for changes as the forecast becomes clearer.
