Temperatures bottomed in the upper 20s Thursday morning. These temperatures combined with patchy dense fog brought another glaze of ice for the second morning in a row. Thankfully, the coverage of today's freezing fog was not as widespread or long-lasting as Wednesday morning limiting any ice from building up on bridges and overpasses Wednesday morning.
Thursday is pick of the week. Expect periods of mostly sunny skies with a few passing clouds. Highs reach the mid 50s, which is the warmest day in our seven days forecast. Clouds will be on the increase by the late afternoon as a strong cold front approaches North Alabama. There is not much moisture with this cold front, so many spots will remain dry. One or two showers can't be completely ruled out through Friday morning. While we won't see much rain, we will certainly see another cool down just in time for the weekend. Highs on Friday struggle to reach 50 while weekend highs will be stuck in the mid 40s. Overnight lows will also stay cold in the upper 20s to near freezing.
All in all, the weather pattern remains pretty quiet through the early part of next week. Another system could bring additional rain chances to the forecast by next Wednesday, but there are still a lot of uncertainties with data sources. Until then, enjoy the sunshine and stay warm!
