Warmer Days Ahead… Tuesday Night Forecast Update – 9pm
October 30, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Tuesday afternoon! Much of Alabama dealt with another windy and chilly day today, with most spots struggling to reach 60 degrees. The wind made it feel much cooler all morning and afternoon, but winds will gradually calm down this evening. The tight pressure gradient between the surface high west of Alabama and Sandy to the northeast has caused winds to gust to 35mph at times. As the surface high moves over Alabama tonight, winds will gradually calm down after dark and should go completely calm after midnight. Look for lows to reach the upper 30s tonight, with a few middle 30 degree temperatures north of I-20.
We can expect ample sunshine through Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. As the surface high hangs out over our area, we will notice the calm and pleasant conditions developing through the week. The upper air trough associated with Sandy will weaken and push northeast, taking the core of the cold air with it. Look for upper 60s for highs on Wednesday and lower 70s on Thursday and Friday. Winds will remain pretty light on Halloween for Wednesday. If you have an event happening Halloween Night or you’re trick or treating, take the jacket.
As the trough lifts out, some ridging will take over, which means a warming trend is likely. Highs will reach the 70s on Thursday and Friday, with mid to upper 70s on Saturday.
A fast moving storm system will move in on Sunday or Monday, which will bring the risk of scattered showers.
