Storms Moving Out; Windy And Colder

| 3:23 pm March 5, 2013

An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

AN ICY WIND: The narrow band of showers and storms is exiting Alabama this afternoon, and a strong northwest wind is ushering in much colder air. Winds will average 25-40 mph in the wake of the storms this evening as temperatures fall steadily. Most places will wind up near 30 degrees early tomorrow morning.

Clouds will hang tough tonight; a few snow flurries are possible over the northeast counties of Alabama, but they shouldn’t pose any problems.

Tomorrow will be windy and cold day; the high will be close to 50, but northwest winds of 15-30 mph will make it feel colder. Clouds could very hang tough much of the day over Northeast Alabama, while the rest of the state should see a decent amount of sunshine.

THURSDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND: After another freeze early Thursday, a nice warm-up begins during the day with a high in the upper 50s. Then, we reach the mid 60s Friday and upper 60s Saturday to kick off the weekend. All three of these days will be bright and sunny thanks to very dry air in place.

A good chance we reach the low 70s Sunday, but southerly winds will begin to increase and a few scattered clouds will show up.

NEXT WEEK: Both the GFS and the ECMWF are now in good agreement… our next round of showers and storms will come Monday. Not a classic severe weather look, but you have to watch any system that blows through here in March. Drier air returns for Tuesday and Wednesday.

WEATHER BRAINS: Don’t forget you can listen to our weekly 90 minute netcast anytime on the web, or on iTunes. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including our meteorologists here at ABC 33/40. We will produce this week’s show tonight at 8:30 p.m. CST… you can watch it live here.
