Nice Weekend – Severe Weather Wednesday? – FRIDAY VIDEO

Good Morning, on a sub-freezing Friday morning.   If you have weekend plans, the news continues to look very positive.  Friday and Saturday will be cool and dry with a lot of sunshine.  Nights will continue quite chilly for now.  A warming trend begins Sunday.  I have tweaked the weekend details.  Sunshine will be dominate.

But, all eyes are on that mid-week storm system next week.  We continue to monitor the potential for strong to severe storms on Wednesday. I have the latest on the potential threat, timing, and the severe weather ingredients.

 

Quiet day today.  A little below normal temperature-wise   Breezy this afternoon.  Dry..

NICE weekend.  Cool sunshine Saturday.  Warming trend Sunday.  Into the 70’s Monday through Wednesday.  Threat of showers returns Monday.  Potential Severe weather threat Wednesday.

Models continue to “waffle” on the details of the severe weather potential, however, on timing, it does appear to be a daytime event Wednesday.

Some of the the severe weather parameters, like available energy or instability, along with other thunderstorm parameters continues to suggest we could see some severe storms Wednesday.  Will they be tornadic?  Details are still a bit sketchy, but we have a few days to monitor this potential threat.

Series of Dry Days – Cold Nights – Nice Weekend– THURSDAY VIDEO

Good Morning!  Wind chill is a factor this morning.  Bundle up.  Today will be rather brisk, but sunny.  How would you like at least 4 dry days in a row?  The nights will be cold, but I have a great weekend forecast, including what looks like a spectacular Sunday.  There’s a major warming trend in our not too distant future.  BUT, a potentially potent storm system next week has my attention.  There appears to be a growing threat of Severe Weather.  I have the latest on timing.

 

A BRISK DAY today…but the sun will be out.  WAY too chilly for the end of February.  The wind will add a bite.

Coldest morning will be around Dawn Friday.  Upper 20’s central Alabama, Near 30 near the Florida broder.

Lots of sunshine today through Sunday.  COLD nights,  but, dry for several days.  Chance of showers begin around Monday.  Big warming trend Sunday through the middle of the week, ahead of a big deal storm system which could be severe.

That Mid-week storm system certainly has my attention.  Potentially Potent, and most likely a Severe Weather Threat.  Ityneeds to be watched.   We have a few days to monitor it.

Sharply Colder Air Ahead – Dry Weekend – WEDNESDAY VIDEO

Good Morning!  An Arctic Cold Front sweeps through the state today.  There could be a couple of isolated showers along the front.  Get ready for another big temperature drop, as chilly air engulfs the area by this evening and tonight.  Wind chill will be a factor.  On this video, I’ll fill in a series of temperature ups and downs over the next week.  I have updated the weekend details.  Plus, we’ll check out a potentially potent storm system next week.

As the arctic front sweeps through the state today, a few spotty showers are possible.  Then windy and much colder by this evening and tonight.

WIND CHILL will be a factor early tomorrow morning.  Dress in layers.

These are actual lows on Friday morning at Dawn.  Upper 20’s possible in central Alabama.

A dry series of days.  Warmer Sunday and Monday.  Chance of a few showers by Monday.

Storm System Tuesday night into Wednesday.  Potential Severe Weather Event?   Maybe…  It has my attention.

Sharply Colder Mid to Late Week – Extended Series of Dry Days – TUESDAY VIDEO

Good Morning!  The risk of showers will end early, as the first Cool Front slides southeastward. Look for a mainly dry and mild Tuesday.  But, we are in for a t sample of some Arctic Air by late Wednesday, through Thursday and Thursday night.  In fact,  another front late Friday will deliver another brief Arctic  “set-back”.  I have tweaked the forecast.  I’ll bring you up to date on timing and the details through the weekend.  We could put together at least 5 dry days in a row!  I’ll also show you what could be an important storm system next week.

Showers exit early today.  Much of this day will be mostly cloudy and mild.

Another cold front sweeps through the state tomorrow afternoon.  It has arctic air behind it.  Sharply colder.

MUCH Colder Wednesday night, Thursday and Thursday night.  Then, another re-enforcing shot of chilly air arrives Friday night through Sunday morning.

Potential big deal storm system about a week away… Potentially severe storms?  Don’t know yet.  Maybe…

More Rain Today/Tonight – Much Colder By Mid-Week –MONDAY VIDEO

Good Morning!  Rain is not what hear about on a Monday.  Especially, after a month which has been so extremely wet.  Carry the umbrella… An approaching storm system/front will make for a wet day today and tonight.  The first Front delivers cooler air by late Tuesday.  A second, Arctic front arrives during the day Wednesday, followed by another big Temperature Plunge. And, it looks like another chunk of very chilly air should arrive by Friday night/Saturday.  I’ll break down the details of the week ahead, and I’ll show you how much rain could fall.
