As of 11:55 am, much of Central Alabama are seeing mostly cloudy to completely overcast skies, but we do have some clearing occurring over the northwestern parts of the area. Temperatures were in the upper 40s to the mid-50s at this time. Anniston and Bessemer were tied as the cool spots at 48 degrees. The warm spots were Tuscaloosa, Selma, and Montgomery, all at 54 degrees. Birmingham was not that far behind at 52 degrees.
Skies will continue to clear out during the rest of the day and into the evening hours before more clouds start to move into the area during the overnight hours. We could have some patchy dense fog develop in areas as well, so we’ll need to be careful on the roadways during the late-night and overnight hours. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s.
Tuesday will start off with areas of dense fog during the morning hours, but skies will be clearing as the fog lifts and dissipate during the late morning and into the afternoon hours. Unfortunately, clouds will be moving back in during the late afternoon and through the rest of the day and nighttime hours. A few showers may be possible over the extreme western and northwestern parts of the area late in the evening and through the overnight hours, with rain chances increasing around and after midnight. Highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s with lows dropping into the upper 30s to the mid-40s.
