The Next 24 Hours – Saturday
It’s definitely going to be a different world of weather on Saturday than the warm, pleasant weather of the past week! Expect a chilly, breezy and mostly cloudy start to the day. Temperatures will bottom out around 43 to 48 between The Shoals, Huntsville, Fort Payne and Cullman. Most of Southern Tennessee will be in the lower to middle 40s as well.
Clouds will temper the warm-up quite a bit; we will only see a slow warm-up from the upper 40s into the mid-50s by the middle of the afternoon. A strong breeze blowing in around 10 to 20 MPH with higher gusts is also going to be a factor in Saturday’s weather!
