Heat Builds Back Across Alabama, But More Cooler Temps on the Way

It has been another cool morning across north and central Alabama with temperatures in the mid-50s to high 60s with even some low 70s showing up over southeast Alabama. There was a Dense Fog Advisory for parts of western Alabama. Fog began to clear out after 9 am and the advisory expired.

After the wonderful rainfall from Monday, today and tomorrow will be mostly dry across the area. Another cold front is expected to move through Friday into Saturday. Rainfall amounts will generally be less than a quarter-inch for most locations with the highest amounts back over western Mississippi. Rainfall may not have done much to hinder the drought conditions but a newly updated drought map will be published by late Thursday morning.

Little in the way of severe weather is expected as the greatest dynamics with the system will be found near the Great Lakes. However, there could still be a few strong storms that produce gusty winds.

In The Midwest
A strong winter storm is expected beginning today in the Dakotas spreading eastward into Minnesota by Thursday to produce heavy snow and blizzard conditions from Montana down into parts of Nebraska/Minnesota. Winter Storm Watches and Warnings have been issued across Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Snow totals up to 20 inches or greater are expected over the north-central Plains.
East Coast

By Thursday, a low-pressure system (maybe a subtropical storm) is forecasted to be located a few hundred miles east of New Jersey. This system, named or not, is expected to bring very gusty winds, coastal flooding, and heavy rainfall for areas along the coast up to Long Island. This system will also bring significant waves, beach erosion, and a rip current threat. Coastal Flood Watches have been issued for along the New Jersey coast, part of Long Island, and Cape Cod. A High Wind Warning is also in effect for Cape Cod where winds could gust as high as 60mph.
