SUNDAY UPDATE:  Storms Depart – Sunshine Returns – The Week Ahead

After a week of active weather,  including rain and storms yesterday & overnight, the cold front has moved through and some nice weather is on the menu for the next couple of days. This will be a nice break for Alabama after flooding this week.  Overnight, wind damage from a possible tornado was reported in Coosa county southeast of Rockford.

The weather this week will include a few disturbances brushes by the area, with the threat of showers at times.  The strongest disturbance arrives Friday, ahead of a cold front.  Could be some stronger thunderstorms perhaps.

6 Tornado reports past 24 hours and numerous wind damage reports.

TODAY:  Sunshine, breezy & cooler.  After mid 80’s yesterday, today’s high will be 67.  Gusty Northwest wind at 10-20+ with higher gusts.  Clear and colder tonight.  Overnight low 37.

NEXT FEW DAYS:   Beautiful day Monday with sunshine, mid 60’s.  A little warmer Tuesday with as a high near 70.  Periods of showers, at times Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday.  It appears the stronger disturbance of the week will affect the area by Friday/Friday night/Saturday morning.  Could be thunderstorms.  Too early to say if there will be a severe threat.

MUCH COLDER AIR:  Next weekend, the EURO model continues to suggest a Colder airmass will move in.  Looks like the heart of the cold air will be in place by around Sunday/Monday, March 3-4.

The extent of the cold and how long is not known yet.  BUT, the Euro shows the big drop behind the cold front.


I’ll have a complete video update Monday morning at 4:45AM.  I’ll go into much more detail about the week ahead. Have a great Sunday!
