January 24, 2017 Leave a comment
Good Tuesday evening! Cooler weather was the topic today with such a chilly start this morning. Right now we are entering into the warm sector of an approaching frontal system; that allowed us to warm significantly this afternoon, into the mid to low 60’s, with strong, warm winds being pulled in from the south. Tonight, winds from the south will aid in keep us slightly warmer than last night, but clear skies will be battling with those winds to try and produce a chilly evening. Early tomorrow morning, clouds will start to arrive ahead of the approaching cold front that will provide some light, scattered showers ahead of it. Rain chances will remain slightly lower than usual tomorrow with such dry air over Alabama. There just isn’t enough moisture to get any heavy showers produced with this system.
After the passing of the front, the remainder of this work week will be much cooler thanks to the passing cold front. In reality, we will finally be back to about where we should be this time of the year with highs in the 50’s and night time lows generally right around freezing.
Heading into this weekend, a secondary trough will dig into the state bringing a stronger surge of cold air into early next work week. Right now, the two air masses that will be clashing both look to hold too little of moisture to produce any rain. Instead, we will see a temporary increase in cloud cover for mainly Sunday. That surge of cool air for the start of next work week will not last very long though. Tuesday, zonal flow from our southwest should quickly bring us back into the mid 50’s for highs.
