There are a few more days of cold weather with hard freeze warnings and wind chill advisories for portions of Alabama. But the good news of warmth is on the way.

Weekend Outlook

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said, “Temperatures will stay below freezing over the northern half of Alabama today despite a sunny sky, and we go back into the teens early tomorrow morning. A freeze is likely down to the Gulf Coast.”

Then, “Sunny weather continues tomorrow, and we warm into the 40s by afternoon for most communities.”

Drastic Temperature Change Coming Soon

As we kick off the week, you will notice a shift in the temperatures as they are expected to soar into the 60s and 70s during the latter part of the week. This is due to a significant change in the upper air pattern across North America, which is set to bring forth a substantial thaw in the upcoming week.
