SHORT TERM. /Updated at 1146 AM CST Fri Jan 28 2022/ Through Saturday.

Colder and drier air continues to race into Central Alabama here at midday following the passage of the cold front. The front is currently moving across the far southeast counties and will clear Troy and Eufaula here over the next hour. Mid-level clouds will continue to slowly clear across the east and southeast as we go into the afternoon hours. However, clouds are expected to increase once again across the northern half of the state as the upper level shortwave dives southward along with the secondary surge of arctic air. High-res guidance continue to indicate a good likelihood of bands of snow flurries developing across the northern half of Central Alabama starting later this afternoon and lasting through 3am Saturday morning. We've included a chance for flurries in the forecast for these areas, but have still not included any accumulations due to the still warm ground conditions. We won't be surprised to see some light accumulations in isolated areas on elevated surfaces, especially in our higher elevation locations of the northeast counties and in eastern counties near Mt. Cheaha.

The main story will continue to be the dangerous wind chills that we'll see overnight tonight through Saturday morning. It's going to be downright frigid for anyone that has to be outside, with wind chills dipping down into the single digits to lower teens areawide. Wind gusts between 20 and 30mph will be likely through sunrise Saturday morning. As the arctic air settles during the day on Saturday, we won't expect much of a warm up at all with current guidance trends ranging from the mid 30s north and east and lower 40s across the south. Continued breezy conditions will keep wind chills down into the 20s for a large portion of the day. Winds will finally subside by Saturday evening, but allow for ideal radiational cooling conditions and another widespread freeze across Central Alabama by sunrise on Sunday.

LONG TERM. /Updated at 0133 PM CST Fri Jan 28 2022/

Saturday night through Thursday.

Saturday night through Monday.

Northwesterly flow will prevail over the area late Saturday through Monday. Dry conditions will persist while temperatures will moderate with time through this time frame.

Lows Sunday morning will be coldest northeast with readings near 20, while readings in the mid to upper 20s are expected across the central and western counties. Highs Sunday will range from the low to mid 50s east to around 60 southwest. Lows Monday morning will range from the mid 20s northeast to around freezing southwest. Highs on Monday will range from the upper 50s north and east to the lower 60s south and west.

Tuesday through Thursday.

Global numerical guidance remains consistent on a deep trough, potentially supporting a closed upper low, moving over the Northwest Gulf of Mexico early on Tuesday. Guidance trends have shifted, taking this feature further southeast over the Central Gulf of Mexico before it quickly weakens due to persistent deep- layer ridging over the Bahamas and South Florida. The overall flow pattern will become more zonal Tuesday and Wednesday, then becoming southwest on Thursday ahead of a longwave trough that will advance east over the Plains.

Clouds will increase late Tuesday into Wednesday with chances for showers moving in during the day Wednesday and persisting into Thursday. There will be some potential for a few thunderstorms far south and southeast on Thursday.

AVIATION. 18Z TAF Discussion.

VFR conditions will continue through the forecast period with wind gusts remaining the primary concern for the aviation forecast. Gusts from the northwest between 20 and 25 knots this afternoon through the overnight hours will remain in the forecast. Winds are expected to finally diminish during the afternoon hours on Saturday.

56/GDG

FIRE WEATHER.

Gusty northwest winds will continue tonight and Saturday behind the strong arctic front. RH values will bottom out in the lower 20 percent on Saturday afternoon with northwest winds of 7-14 mph. Slightly higher RH values are expected on Sunday with west-southwest winds gusting up to 20 mph.
