Midday Nowcast: Chilly with Filtered Sunshine

| December 3, 2019 @ 11:44 am

High pressure remains firmly in control of our weather the next several days which means we stay dry through the end of the week. For the rest of today, we continue to have upper-level cirrus clouds sliding across the Alabama which is giving us a more filtered sunshine look in the sky at midday.

Temperatures at midday are in the 40s, but should climb into the lower 50s in many locations by the end of the day.

For tomorrow and Thursday, expect more sun than clouds with highs gradually warming from near 60° tomorrow to the with lower and mid 60s Thursday. Nights will remain chilly with lows in the 30s. Late Thursday, clouds begin to increase as our next rain maker approaches the state.

RAIN RETURNS: Our next system brings clouds and rain back to Alabama Friday. With a stable air mas in place, this will be a rain event, with no threat of severe weather and little to no thunderstorm activity. Rainfall amounts should be generally less than one-half inch. Highs Friday should hold in the 50s. The rain should come to an end Friday evening with improving weather.
