Good Morning! Take the umbrella today. You may need it at times. Wet weather is in our forecast for the next three days. But, the main event still looks to be on Halloween Thursday, as a strong cold front sweeps through the state, with showers and maybe a few strong thunderstorms ahead of it. I have an update on the timeline and how much rain could fall. Then, get ready. The coldest air of the season is on the way as we begin the new month of November. I have some new numbers to share.
Moisture moving over a northward moving warm front will cause widespread showers over the state today. This is phase one of the three part storm system.
The main event will be Halloween Thursday as a strong cold front sweeps across the state, with showers and maybe even a few strong thunderstorms.
After the storm system, MUCH cooler air funnels into Alabama Friday, with some chilly days and cold nights ahead.
Much of the state could see some beneficial rainfall from this three phase event.
First fire in the fireplace at my house Saturday morning. COLDEST morning of the season so far on November 2nd.
