October 30, 2012 Leave a comment
Above is the current surface map across the eastern half of the US. The remnant low of Sandy is located over south central Pennsylvania at this hour and is slowly weakening. Sandy is still producing heavy rain and snow across the northeast; in-fact, heavy snow has been reported as far south as the Gatlinburg, TN area. 1 to 3 feet of snow have also been reported across the central and southern Appalachian Mountains.
Around here, we’re stuck between a high pressure to our southwest and Sandy to our northeast. A tight pressure gradient is causing a breezy wind around here. The sunlight is filtered some across much of west and central Alabama thanks to some high level clouds flowing in around Sandy. Meanwhile, the snow will continue to add up for the mountains of Tennessee and points northeast. Alabama’s weather will stay dry and chilly today. Highs will reach the low 60s south of HWY 82 with upper 50s to the north of that line. Winds will gust to around 30 at times today.
As the surface high moves in, winds should go calm tonight, with a low around 39. Middle 30s are possible north of I-20.
Skies will remain sunny on Halloween for Wednesday. Highs will warm into the middle 60s under a sunny sky. If you have plans for Halloween Wednesday eve or night, you’ll need a jacket. It sure is looking chilly after sunset, with 50s just after sunset. Atleast winds will be rather calm on Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Thursday and Friday will really start to turn nice, as highs reach the 70 degree mark. The surface high will move over us and provide the calm and clear days. While afternoon temperatures moderate, overnight lows will continue to be pretty chilly. Look for lows to fall around 40 degrees each night through the 1st half of the weekend.
