The Next 24 Hours – A Warm Weekend Begins!

Posted on: 8:07 pm, March 8, 2013, by

This was what last Saturday looked like in Northeast Alabama:

Sand Mountain Snow

This weekend, it’s sunshine, patchy clouds, and warmer temperatures! This back-and-forth pattern we have been in has brought wild swings from weekend to weekend lately. Consider this: the average over-all temperature from mid-February to early March is around 46 to 50 degrees. That is the daily high and low averaged together. Here’s what the past three weekends have looked like:

    • March 2nd & 3rd: Snow showers on Saturday with a weekend average temperature of 36º F (14º below average).
    • February 22nd & 23rd: Sunny on Saturday with a weekend average temperature of 48º F (exactly average).
    • February 16th and 17th: Snow & ice early Saturday morning with a weekend average temperature of 30º F (15º below average).

Saturday’s weather looks incredible compared to the past three weekends! Expect a high between 65º and 70º with a southeast breeze at 7 to 14 miles per hour. Some patchy clouds will move overhead from time to time, but there is no threat of rain on Saturday or even for most of Sunday. Rain and some thunderstorms do return Sunday night into Monday; here are the details behind the numbers on the Seven Day Forecast: WHNT.com/Weather!

Don’t forget Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday morning!  Set your clocks that don’t automatically update an hour forward Saturday night.
