A Wet, Gloomy, Gusty, Chilly Sunday Afternoon

| December 22, 2019 @ 1:03 pm

Today is a pretty yucky day weather-wise across Alabama.

The state is entirely socked in with thick clouds, making it dark and dreary.

Moderate to heavy rain covers much of the northern half of the state, where temperatures are still in the 40s. The back edge of the main shield of precipitation extends from Tuscaloosa to Prattville to Eufaula.

South Alabama is warming into the 50s slowly.

The rain shield is lifting northward and the rain will begin to diminish soon in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, and Montgomery. A few showers will be likely however throughout the evening and overnight.

Wind advisories are in effect for most of the area east of I-65. Winds are gusting to 20-30 mph and even higher at time. The winds are the result of a strong low-level jet at about 5,000 feet off the ground ahead of a strong upper-level low that is located near Alexandria, Louisiana this afternoon.

The low moves east on Monday and showers will gradually end from the west. Skies will clear from the west starting tomorrow afternoon, although areas east of I-65 may not see much sun til Tuesday. highs tomorrow will topo out in the upper 50s.

Tuesday will be a better day, with a good supply of sunshine and highs in the upper 60s as a large ridge moves across the Southeast. Christmas Day promises more of the same, with highs in the upper 60s.
