Nice Weekend, Very Cold Next Week… Thursday Update 4:30 PM

Good Thursday afternoon to you! With a retreating trough/cold airmass, sunshine sure made it feel much better this afternoon. Many spots have reached 60 degrees, but areas northeast of Tuscaloosa have stayed in the 50s all day. As moisture levels increase a tad, lows won’t get as cold tonight. Look for temperatures to fall into the upper 30s to lower 40s tonight.

Some ridging will nudge in from the west on Friday and Saturday. This will allow temperatures to warm well into the 60s. I wouldn’t be surprised if some spots reach 70 both Friday and Saturday. We can expect a good supply of sun through the first half of the weekend, but some changes will take over on Sunday. If you have plans outdoors on New Year’s Eve, look for a good supply of sun, with a high between 66 and 69. Temperatures will fall into the upper 50s by 7pm and lower 50s to upper 40s at midnight. There is no chance of rain at this point for your New Year’s Eve night.

A deep upper air trough will dig northwest of Alabama on Sunday. This will send a cold front into the deep south during the afternoon hours on Sunday. Since moisture levels are low, I don’t expect much rain on Sunday, but moisture may increase just enough to squeeze out a few showers. Skies will become mostly cloudy to start off Sunday of 2012. Expect an afternoon high close to 60, but temperatures will fall quickly later in the day as an arctic airmass dives southward. We will experience some of the coldest air so far this season, with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s on Monday and Tuesday. As a strong high pressure moves in Monday night and Tuesday night, lows will fall into the upper teens to lower 20s. Sunshine will return on Monday and Tuesday.

Some data brings another upper air impulse into the area towards mid-week. This system looks moisture starved, but some extra clouds could move in on Wednesday and Thursday.
