SUNDAY UPDATE:  Nice String of Storm-free Days – Warming Trend Ahead

What a contrast!  Friday was cold, wet and awful.  Yesterday was picture-postcard perfect and comfortable.  Looks like we’ll do it again today.  It should be a great Sunday.  And, except for some minor details, we have really nice weather to look forward to in the week ahead.  Comfortable temperatures on this week’s weather menu, and after last week’s Arctic Encounter, this should be nice.  Farther down, I’ll tell you about the next two storm systems between now and Thanksgiving.

Here’s the map this morning.  Lots of drama along the US East Coast, as the storm system which brought us rain Friday, is now a mega-storm affecting the East Coast.

TODAY:  Mostly sunny.  After a chilly sunrise (at 6:16AM), in the upper 30’s, look for a nice warm-up later.  High 66 to 68.  Low tonight near 40.

YESTERDAY: Montgomery’s high was 67, after a morning low of 34.  Normal high 69, normal low 44.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  A minor disturbance/weak front will increase the clouds late Monday into Tuesday, but we should be dry.  Monday will be slightly cooler, but this week will feature a nice warming trend.  We’ll be near 70 Wednesday and perhaps mid 70’s  Thursday.  Small rain chances start to pop up Thursday night and Friday.  But, I think the better chance of showers will hold off until Friday night and Saturday.

LOOKING AHEAD:  The next front will move through this weekend.  The GFS model is fastest.  It brings the front through the area mid-day Saturday.  The Euro model is slower, bringing in the front on Sunday morning.

Another stronger frontal system could bring in some stormy weather, sometime around Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday the 27th.  That timing could change.  That’s just a general idea.

Just to look at general trends, here’s the raw GFS temperature guidance for the next 16 days.  Ignore the individual  numbers.  We’re looking at the ups and downs here…

Wind Chill 17 Wednesday. Cold, miserable rain Friday. Shorts and teeshirt Sunday at the Park. Welcome to November in Alabama!

I will have a video update for you first thing tomorrow morning at 4:45AM.   Have a nice Sunday!  Should be a great day.
