Rain Tonight/Tomorrow; Temps Stay Below Average

| November 14, 2022 @ 3:19 pm

CHANGES AHEAD: Clouds will continue to increase across Alabama over the next few hours, and widespread rain is likely late tonight into tomorrow morning.

It still looks like most of the rain will come from about midnight tonight through 12 noon tomorrow, although a few showers could linger over East Alabama tomorrow afternoon. While a few storms are possible near the Gulf Coast, for most of the state it will be a cold rain in a stable airmass with temperatures in the 45-55 degree range. Rain amounts of 1/2 to 1 inch are expected.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: The weather will be cold and dry over the latter half of the week with highs in the 40s and 50s, and lows mostly in the 20s by Thursday and Friday morning. These values are well below average for mid-November in Alabama.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Dry weather continues with sunny days and clear nights. Highs mostly in the 50s, lows generally between 25 and 32 degrees.

NEXT WEEK: Dry weather continues through at least the first half of the week; models hint some rain could return late in the week, but they are not in good agreement. Temperatures remain below average, and we see no chance of any severe storms in Alabama for the next 7-10 days. See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: All is quiet across the Atlantic basin, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the week. The hurricane season ends at the end of this month.

ON THIS DATE IN 1969: Apollo 12 was launched into a threatening gray sky with ominous cumulus clouds. Pete Conrad’s words 43 seconds after liftoff, electrified everyone in the Control Center: “We had a whole bunch of buses drops out,” followed by “Where are we going?” and “I just lost the platform.” Lightning had stricken the spacecraft. Warning lights were illuminated, and the spacecraft guidance system lost its attitude reference.

Flight controller John Aaron made a call, “Flight, EECOM. Try SCE to Aux”, to switch the SCE (signal conditioning electronics) to a backup power supply. The switch was fairly obscure, and neither Flight Director Gerald Griffin nor Conrad knew what it was; astronaut Alan Bean knew where to find it and threw the switch, after which the telemetry came back online, revealing no significant malfunctions. The flight was not aborted and the mission was successful. Aaron’s call “SCE to Aux” remains legendary.
