FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Wind advisory in effect for Thursday

(WAFF) -

It will be cooler and windy today.  In most spots winds are out of the northwest at 5 mph or less right now. Those winds will increase through the morning and should be sustained at 15-20 mph by this afternoon. 

A wind advisory is in effect from 10 am – 8 pm for areas east of I-65.  Wind gusts here could top 35 mph - 40 mph in the higher elevations.  We’re starting this morning a few degrees chillier than we did yesterday temperatures are generally in the mid-to-upper 40s. 

Skies will be mostly sunny this morning, but clouds should increase from the east. That means more cloud cover over northeastern AL with more sunshine towards the Shoals. Highs will range from the lower 60s east into the upper 60s west. 

The wind should diminish this evening, although it won’t die down completely overnight. Skies will be mainly clear with lows slipping into the mid 40s Friday morning.

We’ll see mostly sunny skies Friday afternoon with highs pushing back into the low/mid 70s. The wind won’t be as strong out of the north at 5-15 mph. Look for mainly clear skies once again overnight. 

Lows should bottom out near 50° to start Saturday. We’ll see plenty of sunshine for the afternoon and it will be an even warmer day. Highs should be into the lower 80s with mid 80s expected on Sunday. That warmer weather continues as we start the next work week. 

We should be dry through Monday, but clouds will increase ahead of our next weather maker by Monday afternoon. The chance for rain returns to the Valley for Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs should remain above average in the low/mid 80s for much of the week.
