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

PLEASANT DAYS, CHILLY NIGHTS: Last night’s dry cold front brought a surge of cool, dry air into Alabama last night, and will prolong our dry spell into early next week. We expect afternoon highs mostly in the 67 to 70 degree range each day through Sunday with a sunny sky. Tomorrow morning we will be close to 40 degrees, with 30s possible for colder valleys along with a little scattered light frost. The dry weather will last into early next week, although moisture levels will slowly increase on Monday and Tuesday.

TO THE WEST: A significant outbreak of severe weather is possible across the Southern Plains Monday, then shifting eastward on Tuesday to places like Tulsa, Shreveport, and Little Rock. That system will impact Alabama on Wednesday of next week; too early to determine if we will have a big severe weather problem, but for now it looks unlikely with the upper support pulling away to the northeast. Some beneficial rain is likely.

LONG RANGE: Details are a little muddy beyond Wednesday, but confidence is growing in the general idea. Another system will bring another round of rain and storms either Thursday or Friday, followed by a sharp change to colder weather over the following weekend (March 28-29). We, most likely, will have at least one or two mornings with lows in the 20s, but still too early for specifics.

WEATHER BRAINS: Don’t forget you can listen to our weekly 30 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. You can even listen here on the blog; look for the player on the top left.

TWITTER: Don’t forget, you can follow our news and weather updates from ABC 33/40 on Twitter here. And, my personal Twitter feed is here if you want to keep up with my adventures in life. Twitter is a short messaging service you can receive via the web, cell phone, or IM.

I will be back today at Cathedral Church of the Advent in downtown Birmingham today as part of their Lenten Preaching Series… the service begins at Noon if you want to join us. We had a wonderful crowd yesterday. The next Weather Xtreme video will be posted by 3:30 this afternoon… enjoy the day!
