Fairly warm temperatures are on the horizon for the next couple of days in Chilton County according to meteorologist Jody Aaron with the National Weather Service in Calera.

“Cloud cover will stay pretty full on Friday but we are going to see temperatures remain around 55 or 60 degrees on Friday,” Aaron said.

Aaron said there is a 60 percent chance of rain on Friday and parts of northeast Alabama could see some freezing rain due to a cold front coming through on Thursday but the front will not reach Chilton County.

“The temperature profiles we are looking at for Chilton County show a pretty big difference than parts of north Alabama that will see some cooler temperatures,” Aaron said. “For the most part there will be some rain on Friday with another cold front coming through on Saturday and Sunday.”

Aaron said weekend temperatures show cooler air arriving with Sunday morning nearing 32 degrees.

“The winter months in Alabama are very unpredictable,” Aaron said. “Events where the temperatures fluctuate so much are not uncommon.”
