Central AL Forecast: Sunshine, clear skies, and cool temps

13 March 2018

Sunny, and breezy, temperatures will only top out in the low 60s and winds will build out of the northwest between 12-17 miles per hour. Highs are back in the 40s, with 60 degrees in the forecast by the weekend. We'll get into the 50s by Thursday, and the low 50s are on track for Friday. Rain showers will be possible into the weekend, with highs around 49 degrees on St. Patrick's Day.

We'll remain mostly cloudy Sunday evening with temperatures slowly sinking into the mid 30s before midnight. Skies gradually clear overnight, leading to a chilly start to Monday with lows in the 30s and 40s.

Tuesday will be another cool day with highs only topping out in the low 60s under mostly sunny skies but we could have some mid to high level clouds move through during the afternoon.

Showers and flurries are likely tonight

After those early snow chances, mainly in the eastern counties, the clouds depart and the sun returns. By Thursday, we'll see a little bit of sunshine, but skies will be variably cloudy.

"Light snow from a Nor'easter moving up the coast last night left behind anywhere from a coating to 3" on grassy surfaces. Even so the intensity of the snow would be between flurries to a quick light snow shower. Although the weather looks fairly quiet the rest of the week, it also will be cooler than average for March and feel more like winter than February did around here. Presuming you made the switch, you then enjoyed the first of many post-7 p.m. sunsets Sunday night. Temperatures stay mild in the 50s.

Spring officially begins next Tuesday, March 20, at 12:15 p.m. with the arrival of the vernal equinox.
