Good Sunday evening! Today was quite warm for this time of the year. Across Alabama, we saw highs reach the low to mid 70’s thanks to decreasing cloud cover during the day and a warm southerly breeze. Tonight we will see the clouds return and that will help keep our low slightly warm at 53°. Also, if you are hitting the road tonight, keep an eye out for patchy fog during your drive.
The mild weather continues into the beginning of December as temperatures remain near 70° Monday afternoon. Monday night we have the chance of scattered showers for the area, but showers will be more prominent in Northwest Alabama. Tuesday morning we will see the shower possibilities diminish and we lose a few clouds.
A small surface backdoor cold front could bring some cooler temperatures and additional cloud cover to eastern Alabama on Wednesday. For areas east of I-65, expect things to be a little cloudier and cooler, with highs in the low-mid 60’s. The rest of us will remain very nice thanks to the upper air flow being zonal (west to east) throughout this week. This will keep our temperatures mild and balmy with partly cloudy skies through Friday.
As we head into next weekend, the upper air pattern begins to shift, and the threat for rain moves back into Alabama. Temperatures may take a slight dip as we head into the weekend; however, these highs are still above average for early December.
In the tropics, the National Hurricane Center has officially ended the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season. There were 8 named storms, 6 hurricanes, 2 of which were major hurricanes (Category 3 or above). Thankfully for us here in Alabama, none of these storms really influenced our weather. We can take a break from the hurricanes for a few months before the 2015 season begins May 1, 2015.
