Good Morning! Happy New Years Eve! The Year 2019 should end on a nice note. Trouble-free for us, while others in the East deal with a Big Storm. What’s next? We’re monitoring a Gulf Storm System which threatens to bring soaking late week rain to a big chunk of our state, and possibly a severe weather threat to some areas. I’ll break down the details on this video, and we’ll look ahead to big cool-down for the first weekend of 2020. When will the next Arctic Air arrive? We’ll peek into the long-range horizon.
While a big chunk of the nation is dealing with a Major Storm on this New Years Eve, our weather should be pretty nice!
New Years Midnight, will be not far from average…clear skies and a temperature near 39. Happy New Year!
Our next significant storm system. Gulf Low pressure system will move northeast into Mississippi and then into northwest Alabama Thursday and Thursday night.
The Storm Prediction Center has added a Marginal Severe Risk covering much of south and SW Alabama Thursday. Damaging wind gusts are the main risk, but a few tornadoes can not be ruled out. We’re watching for future adjustments to the outlook area.
Some parts of the state could see some rather soaking rainfall totals. Heaviest rain in Alabama will be across north and NW parts of our state.
