Another cold and cloudy start for the Tennessee Valley this Thursday with temperatures starting off in the upper 30's and lower 40's. I expect to see a few breaks in the clouds during the day today as drier air will try to funnel in form the North. Don't be fooled by the sunshine we see as a Northerly wind will continue to usher in cold air where high temperatures will struggle to climb to 50 degrees for highs today.
Tonight, another strong cold front will work its way across the Valley, dropping us into the 20's for overnight lows, and high temperatures will struggle to get to 40 by Friday afternoon! In addition to the cold weather Friday, there may be a small potential for some flurries South of the Tennessee River, including counties like Dekalb, Cullman, and Marshall counties Friday morning. No accumulation is expected. This moisture is due in part to a stalled disturbance that will bring a better chance of seeing snow accumulation on grassy surfaces in Birmingham, Montgomery, and even Tuscaloosa where a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service in Birmingham from Friday 3AM until Friday 6 PM.
Saturday and Sunday we'll dry out with more sunshine expected in the forecast and high temperatures in the mid to upper 40's.
We'll see temperatures climb back closer to average highs for this time of year on Monday, we'll be in the mid 50's as winds flow back in from the South under partly sunny skies.
