A Happy New Year’s Eve to you! Cooler weather has settled into the state on this last day of 2008. Temperatures have reached the lower 50s in many locations and are now on a quick down-hill trend. By midnight, many of us will be in the lower 30s, with an average of 32 degrees in T-town by midnight. Lows will reach 27 degrees, and as winds calm down after midnight, we’ll see a little frost after midnight. On Thursday, lots of sun will start off our day, with temperatures in the middle to upper 50s. Clouds will increase and showers enter the forecast late at night. We will have mostly cloudy skies around on Friday, as a weak cold front moves in. Don’t expect anymore than light showers around for much of the day. Highs will reach the upper 50s, but the cold front will stall out across central Alabama.
On Saturday, a breezy south wind will develop and a warm front will move on through the state. Expect a big warm-up, with highs in the upper 60s on Saturday. We’ll have a few showers through the day. On Sunday, another cold front will move in and we’ll see more rain in the forecast. There is a chance for a few thunderstorms, but we don’t expect anything severe. Highs will make the middle 60s.
Cooler weather will enter the picture on Monday, with highs in the middle 50s. There could be a stray shower around the southern counties but don’t expect much. A surface low develops along the coast and moves into southeast Alabama on Tuesday; rain will overspread the state, with a chilly rain expected. We’ll be watching that one close, as if more cold air gets involved, we could see some wintry weather across our northern counties. Be sure to join be tonight at 5 and 6 for the latest on your weather. I’m filling in for Wes Today. There will not be a 10 p.m. show tonight.
