CLANTON – Thursday 7 am, January 20, 2022

The threat of freezing rain continues to diminish across the state.  The exception will be along the I-65 corridor from south of Montgomery to Mobile from 3 am – 8 am Friday.  In this region, just trace amounts up to 0.03 inch are forecast from very light freezing rain or drizzle.  However, confidence is low for any freezing precipitation.  If it does occur, the impacts will be to bridges and overpasses.  Temperatures will rise above freezing in this region after 8 am Friday.

Low temperatures by sunrise Friday will range from the lower 20s in far north Alabama to lower 30s near the coast.  Highs Friday will range from the middle 30s north to middle 40s south.

Low temperatures Saturday morning will range from the teens north to middle 30s southeast. 

The next chance for precipitation will be Monday night into Tuesday.  This currently forecast to be an all-rain event.
