It’s going to get chilly in Calhoun County this week.

While there’s only a 20 percent chance for light flurries in Anniston this afternoon, the temperature is expected to drop as low as 18 degrees this evening, said Aaron Gleason, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Calera.

The service also issued a hard freeze warning for for much of central Alabama including Calhoun County, lasting from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. Wednesday.

And it won’t get too much higher before the weekend.

“We won’t get out of the 30s tomorrow, won’t get out of the 30s Thursday, and won’t get out of the 30s on Friday,” Gleason said today. “Things might warm up a little bit by Saturday, back to the 40s.”

The coldest day this week will likely be Friday, Gleason said, with the temperature expected to hit as low as 11 degrees in the northern part of the county in the morning. Anniston could see temperatures as low as 15 degrees.

After today, however, there’s little chance of snow, Gleason said.

“On our radar now it looks like that’s mostly going into Georgia,” Gleason said. “We could see some light snow, but just until 6 p.m.”
