Forecast Discussion Update 12/29 4:00 PM

After taking a close look at the weather data this afternoon I have no doubt the cold weather is here to stay. A low pressure system tracking into southwestern Texas is spreading rain and wintry precipitation well northward into the state. High clouds associated with this system are already entering the southeastern states and we will have increasing clouds over Alabama tonight. Tonight our temperatures will fall close to the freezing mark by midnight and then level off. I wouldn’t be surprised if the temperature actually climbed a degree or two during the early morning hours. Tomorrow will be a cloudy day with rain arriving by the afternoon. Look for a cold rain through tomorrow night, tapering off during the early morning hours on New Years Eve. The sky will be cloudy on New Years Eve and another blast of cold air will settle in Thursday night. As the cold air drops in there may be a few sprinkles or snow flurries late. Lows will be near freezing.

On Friday and Saturday our temperatures will remain quite cold, with a north wind. Highs will only reach the 40s, with lows in the 20s. Another disturbance will approach the state late on Sunday and depending on your location, this system will bring clouds and maybe a snow shower or rain shower Sunday night. This will be a fast moving system and it should be through the area early on Monday. The deeper moisture looks to be south of our area; however, we will monitor for signs of a northward shift in the forecast track. Very cold air will drop in behind this system and we will be lucky to see upper 30s on Monday and Tuesday. At this time I’m forecasting lows near the 20 degree mark for early in the week. Stay tuned!
