Twas The Midday After Christmas & Nothing Is A Matter Other Than A Few Clouds That Are Scattered

We have a few thin clouds moving across much of Central Alabama that is filtering out the sunshine a little bit, but clouds are a little thicker along and just east of the AL/MS state line. The good news is that those temperatures at 11:00 am are already reaching the “nice” levels. We are in the upper 50s to the mid-60s at this point with Birmingham sitting at 61 degrees. The warm spot is Troy at 66 degrees while Pell City was the cool spot at 57 degrees.

A ridge of high pressure will keep us dry with well above average temperatures for the rest of the daylight hours today. We’ll have some mid to high-level clouds continue to move across the area that will filter out the sun a little, but highs should still reach the mid-60s to the lower 70s. If we can get just a little more sunshine and temperatures could end up a degree or two warmer. Clouds will be on the increase during the night and overnight hours, but we will continue to stay rain-free. Lows will be in the upper 40s to the mid-50s.

Ridging will be breaking down and moisture will begin to be pulled up from the Gulf of Mexico on Friday. It looks to be just enough for a few showers to form and move up mainly over the southeastern and southern parts of the area. Rain chances are small, only around 20-25%, which means most will stay dry. Highs will reach the mid to upper 60s.
