Central AL Forecast: Sunshine, clear skies, and cool temps

Clouds Monday morning will give way to sunny skies during the afternoon.

A few snow showers will creep back into the picture over the next few days, as Old Man Winter continues to hang on.

We should finally be able to shut off any mention of snowflakes by Friday, although the brisk and cool weather will linger through the end of the week. We will see a break in the rain around daybreak before another round of showers moves in during the afternoon. As the rain ends, it could end as some wet snow flakes for parts of the Northern Pee Dee and Border Belt, most likely areas in NC. Temperatures should stay fairly warm, topping out in the 50s and 60s and dropping into the 30s and 40s at night. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Tonight: Partly cloudy with lingering breezes as temperatures drop into the mid-20s in the outer suburbs to low to mid-30s in the city. The low will be near 28. However, as shown on the map below, most areas will only get a dusting.

Tomorrow thanks to a southwesterly wind 10-20 with a few gusts around 25 miles per hour that will allow highs to reach the 60s.

Tuesday: Sunny, highs in the 50's. There will be a front nearby Saturday into Sunday, but it looks like we'll remain south of it most of the time and this should allow temperatures to warm into the 70s.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and chilly temperatures will be around, with an overnight low of 45 degrees.

Spring officially begins next Tuesday, March 20, at 12:15 p.m. with the arrival of the vernal equinox.
