THE DAY AHEAD:
NWS Birmingham graphic showing projected high temperatures in Alabama, Friday, January 24, 2014.
Today's high will be only in the low to mid 30s, but at least the sun will be out, and there will be very little wind through the midday and afternoon.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND:
After a low tomorrow morning in the 20s, we will see a temporary warm-up. The high tomorrow will be in the upper 40s, followed by low 50s Sunday. Dry air stays in place and the sky will be mostly sunny both days.
MORE ARCTIC AIR NEXT WEEK:
We go right back in the deep freeze; a chance we see mid to upper 40s Monday, but temperatures should begin to fall during the afternoon hours over North Alabama as the cold air rushes in on brisk north winds.
