FIRST ALERT: Dense Fog Advisory through 8 a.m. Friday morning
Protect the plants for a threat of frost & near freezing temps this weekend
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - FIRST ALERT FOR DENSE FOG: A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for most of central Alabama through 8 a.m. Friday morning.
Fog will be likely after midnight and during the early morning, so plan for the possibility of low visibility and slow downs. I would factor in extra drive time for the Friday morning drive.
The rain has exited the state and it will be noticeably colder with lows in the 40s. The morning fog will give way to sunshine and a nice warm-up into the 60s for Friday afternoon.
THE NEXT BIG THING: We will be tracking a secondary surge of cooler air that will arrive Friday night. The wind will become southwesterly by Friday afternoon, with a northwest wind overnight. Plan on a chilly breeze with temperatures tumbling into the 50s and 40s for High School Football. Frost will be likely Saturday and Sunday mornings. In fact, we could see a light freeze Sunday morning, especially in areas north of I-20.
We will have lots of sunshine this weekend with highs in the 50s on Saturday and Sunday. We will continue to experience chilly days and cold mornings for the start of next week. There will also be patchy frost development Monday morning and on Tuesday morning.
We will have dry weather to start the week, but the chance for rain and storms will return next Thursday. We could see a risk for a few stronger storms with this system, so I want to give you the First Alert.
