A cold front is expected to drop temperatures about 10 degrees lower than normal for this time of year this weekend and bring a chance of snow flurries but no accumulation.
Jennifer Schuller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Huntsville, said the region has enjoyed above normal low temperatures, which will return to the mid 30s tonight.
“Those that haven’t been wearing their winter coats might need to bring them back out,” Schuller said.
Schuller said Thursday will be sunny with a high near 60, which is slightly above normal. Clouds will return overnight and the low is again expected to be in the middle 30s.
The sun will peek out again on Friday, with highs expected to be in the mid 50s.
“Friday night looks like we still have a chance of flurries and lows in the upper 20s,” Schuller said.
It’s expected to be sunny Saturday, but the arriving cold front will keep highs in the lower 40s.
Schuller said the forecast as of Thursday calls for no accumulation of snow.
“It’s just another cold front coming through,” she said. “It’s not extraordinary for this time of year.”
