An increase in clouds and a rise in temperatures on Wednesday

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Good morning and happy Wednesday!

We have a frost warning in effect this morning. It is scheduled to expire at 8 a.m. Temperatures dropped into the mid to upper 30s in several locations. Some areas are a little warmer in the lower 40s. Temperatures are about five to 15 degrees higher than they were at this time yesterday. You may have a little frost on your windshield this morning, so you may want to warm up the car for a few minutes before you leave for work or school. The good news is that most people stay above freezing.

First Alert from AccuTrack satellite and radar It appears to us mostly clear and dry. We’re watching cloud cover in Arkansas and Louisiana push eastward this morning. We will likely see increasing clouds today giving us partly to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon. The good news is that we will stay dry, and temperatures are trending up on the first full day of spring. We expect high temperatures to reach the lower 70s. Today, the wind is expected to blow west-southwest at a speed of between 5 and 10 knots per hour. If you have any evening plans, we will stay dry with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures are expected to cool to the low to mid 60s by 7 to 8 p.m

Thursday partly cloudy: We will likely wake up tomorrow morning to mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 40s.

I don’t think we’ll have to worry about any frost tomorrow morning. We should stay dry on Thursday with mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures are expected to rise to the mid-70s tomorrow afternoon with east-southeast winds of 5 to 10 mph. I still can’t rule out a stray rain shower late Thursday evening, but I think the majority of us will still be dry.

Another important thing: We expect an area of ​​low pressure to slide through the southeast Friday. Scattered showers and steady rain will likely produce in central Alabama Friday afternoon and into the evening hours. We will likely remain cloudy on Friday with morning temperatures in the low to mid 50s. Rain will likely remain isolated early Friday morning, but we expect a 70% chance of rain Friday afternoon and evening. Rain can be constant, so prepare for wet roads and low visibility.

With easterly flow and increased rain chances, temperatures will likely trend cooler Friday afternoon with most of us in the lower 60s. I wouldn’t be surprised if parts of northeast Alabama stay in the mid to upper 50s on Friday. The weather is not expected to be bad Friday afternoon. I can’t rule out an isolated thunderstorm south of Interstate 20. We could pick up a half inch to an inch of rain Friday into Saturday morning.

Weekend forecast: We’ll keep a 20% chance of rain early Saturday morning, but I think most of Saturday will remain dry. Temperatures are expected to drop below 50 degrees on Saturday morning with cloudy skies. Cloud cover will likely ease Saturday afternoon leaving partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures are expected to rise into the mid 60s Saturday afternoon with breezy conditions. If you have any Saturday evening plans, you’ll probably need a jacket. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 40s Saturday night. We could see temperatures drop into the upper 30s Sunday morning. Sunday will likely start out mostly sunny with increasing clouds late in the day. Temperatures are expected to rise into the lower 70s. No rain is expected on Sunday.

I look forward: Temperatures next week look to be near average with highs in the mid to upper 60s and lows in the 40s and 50s. Our next chance to see rain will likely be next Tuesday as a cold front moves to the southeast. There is a low chance of seeing strong storms with this system. The weather is likely to remain stable, which will reduce our threat of seeing severe storms. Rain is likely to stream through the area on Tuesday and continue into the first half of Wednesday. This system could produce stormy conditions across the state. We’ll have a better idea of ​​the extreme potential over the weekend. Stay with us for new updates throughout the week.
