Cool Now… Very Cold Air by Thursday… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23
December 6, 2016 Leave a comment
Good Tuesday afternoon! It’s been a wet few days across Alabama, as an upper level low to our southwest continued to provide uplift and available gulf moisture was the fuel for periods of rain since Saturday. The upper air low has weakened and lifted to our northeast, but low level moisture remains, so the clouds remain. Expect a mostly cloudy sky through Thursday morning before a big push of cold and dry air can erode the cloud deck.
Temperatures tonight will drop into the lower to middle 40s, with a light north breeze. Highs will top out in the upper 50s on Wednesday, which is very close to average for this time of the year. A very deep upper air trough will send a cold front through Alabama on Thursday. While a few isolated early morning showers are possible, most of our Thursday will be cold, breezy and dry. Highs will only top out in the 40s on Thursday, with a hard freeze both Thursday night and Friday night. Lows both night will dip into the lower 20s. Highs on Friday will only reach the low 40s, despite plenty of sunshine.
A weak system will develop and spread clouds and some light rain over our area late Sunday and into the day on Monday. Rain amounts will likely remain under 1/2 an inch with this next event. Temperatures will modify, so there is no chance of wintry weather…
