December 25, 2016 Leave a comment
Good Sunday morning and Merry Christmas! To start off, I want to remind everyone that we are not having any shows today or on Monday. You can still go on our page though for the up-to-date 7day, as well as our webcast.
Today we are going to experience yet another very warm Christmas this year. Last year we saw temperatures around 80° and we will once again see temperatures around that today. There will be some periods of clouds today for portions of central Alabama, but most should see ample amounts of sunshine. Tonight will a very mild evening with mostly clear skies with some clouds developing later on, going into the early morning hours of Monday.
This coming work week will be a gradual cool down from this weekend. Temperatures will still be in the 70’s Monday but an approaching trough from the west will slowly try and make its way into Alabama before stalling and drying out. That will provide the opportunity for a few stray showers for Monday and Tuesday. A stronger trough behind the initial one will help push through later Wednesday, and into the day on Thursday. The arrival of the stronger front Wednesday will spark a greater chance for showers both days, along with a few thunderstorms. Once that system is gone, cooler (or at least average) temperatures return to Alabama with sunny skies.
Next weekend, for New Year’s Eve and New Years Day, looks to hold the chance for some stray showers later Saturday and transitioning into stronger showers Sunday. As of now, models have them weak enough that overnight plans should not be majorly affected.
