Tuesday Afternoon Discussion Update 4:33 PM

Let me begin by sending a big thanks to all of our veterans! Clouds will be on the increase through tonight, with a few sprinkles or showers possible. There is a large mass of light rain entering Mississippi. The air over us is still very dry and it will take us a while to moisten up. We will cool into the low 50s tonight, with only a slight chance of rain. The sky will be mostly cloudy tomorrow, with showers increasing in coverage. We will have a decent period of rain tomorrow night and into the day on Thursday. There may be a few rumbles of thunder, especially in areas south of Tuscaloosa. Some of the thunderstorms over south Alabama may be on the strong side. Lows will be in the 50s, with highs near 70 on Thursday. A shower or thunderstorm will linger on Friday, in response to a cold front. The front will bring a significant cool down for the weekend. We will have a cold day, with clouds on Saturday. Highs will be in the 50s on Saturday, with a cold northerly wind. Lows Saturday night will be near freezing.

We will remain quite chilly through the start of next week, with sunshine returning. We will be monitoring another storm system for next Thursday and this will bring a sharp cool down. We will have a chance of rain next Thursday, followed by a large drop in temperatures. Due to the speed of arrival of the next cold blast, portions of the southeast may deal with wintry precipitation.

On this Veterans Day I had a chance to visit senior citizens out at McConnell Hills. I want to thank Mrs. Sallie Hill for the invitation and for allowing me to share stories about the weather and our operation at WVUA Television. Have a great Evening!
