March 30, 2011 Leave a comment
A good Wednesday to you! Its felt a little more like winter today, with light showers and mist for much of the day. A cold front moved through last night, and has brought cooler air to the state. The big storms from last night are long gone, with severe weather over parts of Florida. As a couple of upper air impulses work through from the northwest, a few showers are possible through Friday night. The good news is the weekend will be great, with an increase in sun and temperatures.
Skies will remain mostly cloudy tonight, with a low in the lower 40s. Some clearing is possible at times, but skies will generally stay mostly cloudy through Friday night. Highs on Thursday warm into the lower 60s. Some places north of Tuscaloosa will stay in the 50s all day, with a breezy northwest wind. Winds will continue to be gusty on Friday as well, with lower 60s expected on Friday. The big eastern US trough will be moving out on Friday, and warmer air will be soon to follow. Sinking air will allow for clearing skies Saturday morning, with plenty of sun Saturday afternoon and on Sunday. Highs will top out in the lower 70s on Saturday, but lower 80s are possible on Sunday. It will still be chilly at night, with a start in the 40s both Saturday and Sunday morning.
Another big storm system arrives on Tuesday, with the threat of some severe weather. We’ll keep an eye on that system, as some models give us a big threat of severe weather. Fortunately, we have several days to watch it. Temperatures will back down into the upper 70s on Monday and Tuesday, due to more clouds.
