A Nice & Sunny Sunday At Midday, But It Is A Little Windy At Times

| December 1, 2019 @ 12:50 pm

As of 12:00 pm on this first day of December, and the first day of Meteorological Winter, skies have cleared out nicely across Central Alabama leaving us in total sunshine. We do have a good stiff breeze blowing at times out of the west but will be shifting more out of the northwest later this evening and tonight. All of the shower activity has now pushed well to our east over the northern parts of Florida and up into the southeast corner of Georgia. Temperatures are in the mid-50s to the right at 70 degrees across the area. Montgomery was the warm spot at 70 degrees while the cool spot was Haleyville at 55 degrees. Birmingham was at 64 degrees.

The temperatures have already hit their warmest point for the day as much cooler air will now start to work into the area as a deep trough will move by just to our north. Clouds will move back in over the northern half of the area, but we should remain dry. Overnight lows will dip down into the 30s across the area.

The start of the workweek will be a much cooler day, but clouds will gradually decrease across the area late in the day. We’ll stay dry with highs topping out in the lower 40s to the lower 50s.

Tuesday will be dry with mostly clear skies throughout the daylight hours, but a few clouds may move in during the evening hours over the northern parts of the area. Highs will be just a touch warmer, topping out in the lower to mid-50s. The warming trend continues on Wednesday as we’ll have plenty of sunshine with highs topping out in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.

A quick-moving low will move toward and into the southeast on Thursday that will bring an increase of clouds during the latter part of the day. Prior to that, skies will be mostly sunny with highs reaching the upper 50s to the mid-60s. Showers associated with the low will begin to move into the area just after midnight and will bring a decent chance of rain throughout the morning and into the early afternoon hours on Friday. Highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.

We’ll have some sunshine to start off the day on Saturday before clouds move back in as another system looks to move in and bring rain and thunderstorms to the area just after midnight on Sunday and through much of the morning on the following Monday. We may have to watch this system as the low will be much closer to Central Alabama than the previous systems and strong storms may be possible. It is still too far out at this point and it all may change before we get there. Saturday’s highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s and warming into the 60s to close to 70 degrees on Sunday.
