FRIDAY: No weather worries for any Friday evening plans with skies remaining cloudy, temperatures will be mild in the low to mid 50s. Rain showers wont move into northwest Alabama until after midnight.
SATURDAY: A strong cold front will sweep through the Tennessee Valley bringing with it showers, thunderstorms, breezy winds and eventually much colder temperatures. Scattered showers will begin early Saturday morning with a broken line of storms moving into northwest Alabama as early as 8 AM.
That line of storms will march east through the late morning/early afternoon hours.
The SPC has placed most of the area under a “marginal” risk for severe storms, meaning isolated severe storms will be possible with damaging wind gusts being the main threat along with heavy rain.
Moisture will linger Saturday night into Sunday morning and with much colder air moving in, some snow flurries could fly around before sunrise Sunday. NO accumulations or impacts expected!
Even with some sunshine returning on Sunday, temperatures will stay cold in the 30s all day. Wind chills will be in the 20s all day long. Something cool to check out in the sky Sunday night will be the total lunar eclipse and supermoon! Just bundle up if you head outside!!
Temperatures will continue to drop into the teens and low 20s by Monday morning. Wind chills will drop into the single digits and low teens.
