A lobe of energy aloft is passing through Northeast Alabama producing some precipitation and strong winds. Here are a couple of reports from our Skywatchers… first from James Payton in Huntsville:


Just to let you know we had a very heavy period of sleet about 1:30 on the west side of Huntsville. Visability was down to about 1/3 of a mile. It lasted about 10 minutes…& was gone. The sun is now back out.

Just wanted to let you know. Have a good one!”

And… from Vic Bell in Northeast Etowah County:

“WOW! I don’t think I’ve seen the wind blow this hard in a non-thunderstorm scenario since I lived in Oklahoma…..W25-30G45….currently: 47 with drizzle”

More on this, and the potential Arctic outbreak next week… coming shortly…
