FANTASTIC FORECAST: Today will be tough to beat; sunshine warms Alabama into the mid to upper 70s with a light breeze and no wind. Lows drop into the lower 50s tonight with a clear sky. Tough to beat!
CLOUDY, THEN WET: Clouds roll into the state tomorrow afternoon. We'll maintain a 20% chance of a quick shower late tomorrow, before sunset, but most of us will stay dry through 7pm Tuesday. Rain lifts northward through the state Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. We don't expect any severe thunderstorms; mainly just some spotty areas of rain. The rain temporarily ends late Wednesday morning, then another band of showers pushes through Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening along the cold front.
TURNING COLDER: The air behind this front will be dramatically colder - we'll go from a forecast high of 72° Wednesday afternoon to a forecast low near 34° by sunrise Thursday. High temperatures Thursday will struggle into the mid 50s; that's well below normal for mid-March in central Alabama. Friday morning will be cold, too, with readings approaching the 32° mark.
