Evening Discussion Update 9:10 PM

The model data is doing a very poor job with our temperatures tonight. I have adjusted our overnight low to compensate for a decrease in clouds and a calm wind. Tuscaloosa has already dropped to 55 degrees and the dewpoint is 54. It is feeling rather chilly out there and we could see temperatures as low as 51 degrees. Also, areas of fog will be developing tonight. Otherwise, our forecast seems to be on track. Rain is starting to surge northward towards southeast Alabama, out of the Gulf. As for West and Central Alabama, we could see a few showers by tomorrow morning and especially by tomorrow afternoon. Our best opportunity for a shower or thunderstorm will come in advance of a cold front tomorrow night. Be sure to join us at ten for more details!

Thursday Afternoon Discussion Update 4:20 PM

The sky will remain cloudy tonight, with a few showers possible. There will also be areas of fog developing, with lows in the upper 50s. You can expect another cloudy and mild November day tomorrow. Showers will be developing and there may be a thunderstorm in the afternoon. The chance for a thunderstorm will increase if we manage to get a few rays of sunshine to further destabilize the atmosphere. The chance for a shower or thunderstorm will peak tomorrow night as a sharp cold front pushes through the state. Temperatures will drop into the 50s tomorrow night and on Saturday the temperatures will continue to tumble. You can expect a cold and blustery north wind for Saturday. The rain will be tapering off from west to east during the early morning hours and we will eventually see a break in the clouds by Saturday evening. If you’re going to Alabama’s football game be sure to carry warm clothing. The kickoff temperatures will be near 49-degrees. Chilly weather will be the highlight for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Highs will be in the 50s on Sunday, with 60s for the first half of next week. Lows at night will remain in the cold 30s. Long range data is back on track with another cold blast late next week. Have a great evening!
