Quick Update

We got in a sunny and cold start early on this Saturday morning, but things will be changing quickly. Southwesterly winds aloft are already transporting Gulf moisture up and over our cold airmass. The atmosphere will begin the process of moistening from the top down today. You can see it in the clouds that are edging into western Alabama now.

Skies will become cloudy from the west this morning and those clouds will lower during the day.

Radar even shows a few light returns over eastern Mississippi, but thoses are likely not reaching the ground. There could be a few pellets of sleet with the advance guard, I suppose. But it will take several hours for the airmass to become moist enough for precipitation.

A few showers will begin reaching the ground this afternoon and increase tonight.

Rain is a good bet during the Alabama/Auburn game, but it shoudl be light. Temperatures will be chilly, in the 50s and 40s, with a chill east breeze. Chime in with your favorite Auburn/Alabama game weather memories…just scroll down.

To the west, winter storm watches, warnings, snow advisories and winter weather advisories are in effect from Southeast Arizona through New Mexico into West Texas. WIntry precipitation is falling from southeastern New Mexico into the Texas Panhandle. A nice batch of snow is falling over Kansas when snowfall amounts from 1 to 6 inches have been reported.

Further east, rain showers were increasing over Southeast Texas into Louisiana. This is what we have to look forward to.

For us, tomorrow will feature showers, with maybe a chance of a little thunder. Storms will be increasing Sunday night, and especially Monday as the surface low lifts northeastward and propels a front our way.

We continue to monitor the possibility of severe weather late Sunday into Monday. Brian will be along with the map discussion video shortly. Updates all weekend.
