A Balmy Midday Compared To What’s Ahead For The Beginning Of The New Year

| December 29, 2017 @ 1:43 pm

Even with the temperatures throughout Central Alabama ranging from the mid-40s to the mid-50s at this point, this would be considered a tropical heat wave to what we’ll see on the first few days of 2018. At 1:30 PM, we have clear skies across the area and that unfiltered sunshine will make those cool temperatures feel not as bad. The good news is that winds are calm at this point, meaning that wind chill values are not a factor at this point.

For the rest of the afternoon, skies will remain mainly clear and highs will top out in the mid-40s to the mid-50s, maybe just a degree or two warmer than where we sit at this point. For tonight, skies will be mostly clear and lows will drop into the upper 20s to the mid-30s.

Saturday will be the last cool day before the nasty cold air starts to invade Central Alabama. Skies will mainly be clear throughout the morning and afternoon hours before clouds start to move in from the west during the late night and into the overnight hours. Afternoon highs will be in the mid-40s to the lower 50s, with lows dropping into the mid-20s to the upper 30s throughout Central Alabama.

This Day In Weather History
1830 – A very heavy snowstorm ushered in the “winter of the deep snow.” The storm produced 30 inches of snow at Peoria IL and 36 inches at Kansas City MO. Cold and snow continued until the middle of February causing great suffering among pioneers.
