Forecast Discussion Update 9/29 4:10 PM

Our first true taste of fall is here! We started off the day with some neighborhoods in the 40s. The city of Pinson was one of the colder spots, with a morning lows of 46 degrees. The official low in Tuscaloosa was 50 degrees. The sky will be clear tonight and with light winds, lows will be dropping into the middle 40s area-wide. After a cold start tomorrow, get set for another enjoyable afternoon. We will have a sunny sky, with highs in the upper 70s. A warmer southerly flow will take over on Thursday, with some clouds arriving late. Highs on Thursday will reach the low 80s.

A low pressure system and associated cold front will move into the nation’s midsection on Thursday. This storm system will bring the threat of severe weather to the Plains states. A band of rain and storms will track into western Mississippi Thursday evening. We may have some showers locally, with our greatest chance for rain on Friday. Thunderstorms will also be possible locally, especially in areas to our south. The cold front will move through with drier air arriving on Saturday.

We should enjoy dry conditions through much of the weekend, although some clouds will linger. In the long term, a moist southwest flow will return early next week. Energy riding through this flow will bring a return chance for showers next Tuesday and Wednesday. Be sure to join us tonight for more details!
