Frontal System Brings Showers – Thursday Video

Good Morning!   Dense Fog is a problem again this morning.  A front is on the way, which will bring showers to the state.  I’ll show you future radar.  Looks like the month of December begins with a very mild first weekend.  But, hang on.  Drastically colder weather is ahead for next week. I have the latest on the dramatic changes ahead.  Lots of good information on your Thursday morning personal weather briefing.

Dense Fog is a problem this morning, not just in central & south Alabama, but across adjacent states, too.  Advisory until 9AM

Frontal system today brings a good chance of showers to the area, especially this afternoon & this evening.  The air behind this front, though is mild.

Look for a mild first weekend of December, before dramatic changes next week.

Strong cold front comes into the area next Tuesday and Tuesday night.  Good rainfall with this system.  Too early to speculate on severe weather threat.  Dramatically colder air behind the front as depicted by the global models.

 

 

 

Showers On The Way – Wednesday Video

Good Morning!   Very spring-like forecast for a few days even though a front is approaching.  Scattered showers will move in with the weak front tomorrow. I’ve had to make some tweaks to the weekend forecast to allow for some milder temperatures.  But, hang on cold weather fans.  Looks like we are roughly 7 or 8 days away from a huge temperature drop.   Here’s your Wednesday morning personal weather briefing.

Very spring-like day is on the way as we make it into the 70’s  Showers should hold off until the front moves into the state tomorrow/.

Next few days…Scattered showers with the front tomorrow and tomorrow night.  Not much cooler behind the front.  In fact, a pretty mild first weekend in December.

Strong Cold front arrives by the middle of next week, followed by a significant temperature plunge.

The global models tell the story well…

Late Week Front Will Bring Showers – Tuesday Video

Good Morning!  Another near freezing start, but a remarkable recovery on the way and 2 or 3 very Spring-like days in our future before the Cool Front which could bring some showers.  On this video, I’ll walk you through the timeline and the details through the weekend and beyond.  Plus, we’ll look beyond the horizon.  Could we see a December temperature plunge, and when?

 

Remarkable warm-up today after a chilly start.  We should be near 70 this afternoon.  Tonight will not be as cold.  We only fall to the 40’s.

We have a few Spring-like days to look forward to this week, before a Thursday Cool Front brings in the threat of showers, followed by a cool-down.

Looking at the FAR distant horizon, we continue to see signs of a very spring-like first week of December, followed by a dramatic cool-down during the 2nd week of December and beyond.

For the most part, the American GFS model also sees the big temperature slide in the second week of December.

 

Cool Start This Week, Then Warming – Monday Video

Good Morning on a cold Monday morning!  This week starts rather cool and ends rather mild, as we end the month of November Thursday on a unseasonably warm note.  A cold front is on the way, which could brings some much needed rain.  I’ll update you on the time line.  How cool will we get behind the cold front?  I’ll look ahead to the first weekend in December, and beyond.  Here’s your Monday AM personal weather briefing.

 

After a cold start this morning, look for cool sunshine, but a nice day today.  Lows in the upper 30’s tonight.

Look for a warming trend starting tomorrow and through Thursday, before a Cold Front brings showers Thursday.

We are dry now.  We need the rain.  More than 3″ below normal for November so far.

The Euro model advertises some much cooler air after the first week of December is over.  Perhaps a rather cool to cold time mid and late December.

The Week Ahead

Cooler air has overspread the state.  We should see a cool, but nice day today with sunshine.  After a chilly start in the upper 30’s, our high will reach the low to mid 60’s  Another chilly night is on tap.  In fact, we are headed for the coldest morning of the week, with mid 30’s by about dawn.  The week ahead will feature a warm-up, followed by 2 fronts which will bring a chance of much needed showers.  Then, a cool-down will start the month of December.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  After a cold start Monday morning, our temperatures will rebound this week into the low 70’s by Wednesday and Thursday.  A couple of fronts on the way will bring a threat of showers by Wednesday night into Thursday.

COOLER BY THE WEEKEND:  Behind the front, cooler drier air moves in to start the month of December.  We’ll only be in the lower 60’s by Friday & Saturday and into the 30’s Friday night/Saturday morning.

 

SPACE STATION TONIGHT:  Set the alarm on your phone for about 5:30PM.

This evening, the Space Station (ISS) will streak across the southeast sky between about 5:32-5:35PM.  This will be a good one..very bright.  It won’t be straight overhead, but it will be prominent in the SE sky about 60° above the horizon.

I will have a complete video update tomorrow morning.  I’ll have a look at the week ahead, including the first weekend in December.  Plus, will update our rainfall deficit, in shat should be a wet & stormy time of the year. Are we headed for another drought.  And, a look ahead to some colder weather on the distant horizon in December.

Have a great Sunday!
