Happy Veterans Day, and Thank You to all Veterans for your service! We have a cool forecast. The coolest air, will be the farther east you go in the state today. Clouds will increase. There could be some spotty drizzle, or a light shower or two by late tonight and into Sunday. Also in this blog, the outlook through Wednesday, an update on Football weather, and a little “tease” about Thanksgiving week weather and Iron Bowl Weekend.
TODAY: A cool breeze, circulating around that Cold high in the Northeastern US, will make for an interesting temperature gradient. It will be warmest in the southwest and west counties, and coolest near the Georgia border. Auburn’s high may not make it to 60, while Montgomery may barely approach the mid 60’s. The southwest counties will flirt with 70. Clouds will increase during the day. It will be mostly cloudy tonight. Could be a couple of light showers or drizzle late tonight, mostly after Midnight.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Sunday will be rather cloudy & cool. There could be a little drizzle or light showers at times. Rain will be spotty and light. Highs will struggle to reach 60. Monday and Tuesday looks great with comfortable days and chilly nights and mornings. Wednesday will be a warmer day.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: It will feel like Football weather today for a couple of key SEC games today, in Auburn and Starkville, MS. involving the number 1 & 2 teams in the nation. Kickoff at 2:30 in Auburn for Auburn/Georgia, and 6PM in Starkville for Alabama/Miss. State. Wear something warm.
ACTIVE PATTERN AHEAD: Just a few words about some interesting days ahead in the period from about November 17 through November 26. A strong Cold Front sweeps through the state sometime around Friday night, Nov. 17. It’s too early to say if there will be severe weather associated with the front. That will be “stages of cool” which will engulf the state in theb days that follow. There will be 2 or 3 fronts during Thanksgiving week. It appears the “Real Deal Chilly Air” will be firmly entrenched by Black Friday and through the Iron Bowl weekend. What do you think about the prospects for a cold Iron Bowl Saturday? Stay tuned. The details are coming into focus. I’ll keep you informed.
Just as a little tease…here’s the GFS model raw temperature guidance for the next 16 days. Don’t take the numbers verbatim. We are only looking at trends. Stay tuned… 🙂
Have a great weekend!
