The New WVUA Fish and Game Forecast

When I moved back home to Tuscaloosa, just over three years ago, and joined the team at WVUA, I tried to come up with ways to make our weather product the best it can be. In this quest I’ve always worked hard to come up with a product for all of us who enjoy the outdoors. With that
said, today I am proud to unveil our new fish and game forecaster. This is a forecast that utilizes the Lunar Tables to give you the peak times to tackle the outdoors. The company that helps us to provide this valuable information is called Datasport. This company is rich in tradition with bringing hunting and fishing forecast to TV audiences all across the country. The above is a sample of what you will see each night, exclusively, on WVUA-TV.

Wednesday Afternoon Forecast Discussion Update

One of the weather rules I’ve learned to always go by in this business is that when your in a dry pattern its hard to break out of that pattern. That is exactly what we’re dealing with right now, as the rainfall deficit for Tuscaloosa is now over a foot for the year 2007. The system that moved through last night rapidly weakened as it moved into Alabama. Even though it looked like the bottom was going to fall out at times this morning, we only measured trace amounts of rain in most areas. Nevertheless, it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon and the sunshine allowed us to reach the middle 70s. Tonight we will cool into the upper 40s under clear skies.

High pressure will build overhead and set the stage for more dry weather as we go into the weekend. Highs tomorrow and Friday will be in the 70s under sunny skies. The high will be centered right over Alabama by Saturday evening and this will spell more dry conditions for Sunday. The warm-up will continue into the start of next week and temperatures by next Wednesday will be in the mid 80s. The long-range data is now showing a much slower progression with next week’s rainmaker. Therefore, our next opportunity for wet weather will be around next Thursday.

Be sure to join us tonight at five, six, and ten for more details!
