Freeze Potential Tonight

An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

COLD HALLOWEEN NIGHT: The NWS has issued a freeze warning for all of their counties up in the Tennessee Valley, where temperatures will drop down into the 28-34 degree range. Down this way, along the I-20/59 corridor, we expect lows between 33 and 37 in most places, but the colder valleys will have a good chance of seeing a freeze. And, frost is likely in most places as we near the end of the 2012 growing season. The sky will be fair, and the wind will finally settle down to near calm.

AND, JUST IN… The NWS in Birmingham has issued a freeze warning for Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne, Etowah Counties in their CWA (County Warning Area) tonight as well. Temperatures over this part of Northeast Alabama could reach 32 degrees or lower for a while after midnight.

TOMORROW/FRIDAY: The weather won’t change much tomorrow; lots of sun with a high in the mid 60s. But, on Friday, the weather turns warmer as we rise into the mid 70s along with a good supply of sunshine.

OUR WEEKEND: Saturday will be warm November day… perhaps the warmest of the month with a high in the 77 to 80 degree range with a partly to mostly sunny sky. Then, we will bring back the chance of showers Sunday as a strong upper trough approaches. The 12Z GFS is a little more aggressive with rain Sunday, but moisture still will be somewhat limited, and rain amounts should be less than one-half inch.

The 12Z GFS is also faster with the system, and moves the rain out of here by daybreak Monday. Early next week will be cooler with a high in the 50s Monday, and close to 60 Tuesday with a cool north breeze. See the Weather Xtreme video for the graphics and details.

STORM ALERT XTREME: Our annual storm spotter training is coming up November 10 at the BJCC, as part of the Alabama International Auto show. We begin at 9:00, and you will be done at 2:00. And, as a “thank you”, you will get free admission into the car show. There is no cost, and no need to register, just show up. Brian Peters will be the trainer, and we ask all existing and potential Skywatchers to attend. See you there!

CONNECT: You can find me on all of the major social networks…
