Chilly winds wrap-up the weekend, warmer weather returns this week

Storms will also produce brief, torrential rain and possibly hail up to about the size of quarters. Sunday will be breezy with a gradually clearing sky.

Monday offers little in the way of relief, with moderate to heavy rains expected for much of the day and temperatures in the mid- to upper 50s. Despite this series of fronts, we are expecting abundant sunshine for the next six days and we have another quick warm up beginning on Sunday. Additionally, overnight tonight Freeze Watches are in effect for parts of the TN/NC mountains where temperatures could be below freezing. Temperatures will reach the lower to mid-70s during the afternoon. The average high for this time of the year is around 70 degrees.

Conditions range from severe weather in the lower Mississippi River Valley and southeast to blizzard conditions in the Northern Plains and upper Midwest. Friday looks nice with a mostly sunny sky and highs in the mid 70s. The rain will slowly taper as we start the day on Sunday as it pushes into East Alabama and finally on into Georgia by Sunday afternoon. Sound familiar? The timing could certainly change between now and late next week, so we'll keep our eyes on it for you.

The weekend's wind gusts are expected to blow through the week, but rain chances will evaporate. We will stay dry the entire day with only a 20% chance of showers late in the day.

We're monitoring a threat for severe weather tomorrow across Alabama.
