Clear And Cool Across Central Alabama At Midday

| November 13, 2017 @ 12:03 pm

Central Alabama is basking under bright sunshine as we make the approach to the midday hour, and that is helping these cooler temperatures feel a little warmer. Speaking of temperatures, readings from across the area are showing upper 50s to the lower 60s in the northern half of the area, with mid to upper 60s in the south. Haleyville and Cullman are the cool spots at 57 degrees, while Troy and Eufaula are the warm spots at 68 degrees. Birmingham is currently sitting at 63 degrees.

REST OF YOUR MONDAY: For this afternoon and early evening hours, skies will be generally clear and temperatures rather cool. Afternoon highs on the latest model runs are running a few degrees lower than what I saw earlier today, but those will top out in the upper 50s to the upper 60s from north to south. Skies will generally be clear during the overnight hours, and lows will drop down into the upper 30s to the upper 40s throughout Central Alabama.

TUESDAY’S WEATHER: We may start off the day with a few clouds in the early morning hours, but those will dissipate throughout the daytime hours. Afternoon highs will be in the lower to mid-60s to the north, with mid to upper 60s in the south. Skies will be generally clear during the overnight hours, and lows will dip down into the upper 30s to the mid-40s.

SEVERE WEATHER ACROSS THE U.S.: Other than a few thunderstorms in the Pacific northwest and down in southern Florida, severe weather is not expected for anyone in the United States for today. At this point, Tuesday and Wednesday appear to be severe-free as well. Looks like the next shot for severe storms will come on Friday as a cold front will be moving into the Midwest and Southeast. At this point it looks like the main threats will be from damaging thunderstorm wind gusts. I’m sure this will be fine-tuned within the next couple of days as models come into better agreement.

THE TROPICS: A disturbance to the southwest of the Azores continue to show signs of organization, and there is a medium chance that it could develop into a tropical depression or storm within the next 5 days. It will be moving slowly to the northeast and will be no threat to land.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY: 1933 – The first dust storm of the great dust bowl era of the 1930s occurred. The dust storm, which had spread from Montana to the Ohio Valley the day before, prevailed from Georgia to Maine resulting in a black rain over New York and a brown snow in Vermont. Parts of South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa reported zero visibility on the 12th. On the 13th, dust reduced the visibility to half a mile in Tennessee.
