Coldest Morning So Far

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.

SUB-FREEZING: Here is a look at some 5:00 a.m. temperatures across the great state of Alabama….

Black Creek (northeast of Gadsden) 27
Russellville 27
Fayette 29
Haleyville 30
Valley Head 30
Decatur 30
Concord 32
Birmingham 33

These are not the lows of the day, temperatures should drop another 2-4 degrees.

We warm into the mid 50s today with a good supply of sunshine.

TOMORROW: A rather strong short wave will bring some clouds into Alabama tomorrow, but the low levels are very dry, and despite the robust upward motion provided by the wave, we will leave the forecast dry and just mention increasing clouds. We will begin the day well down in the 30s again with another freeze potential, then warming into the mid 50s… about 10 degrees below the average high of 65.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY: These two days will feature a partly to mostly sunny sky with a high in the 59-64 degree range. To the east, a low will form off the South Atlantic coast that has potential to bring some rain to places like Savannah and Charleston.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Not much change as a benign weather pattern continues. The sky should be mostly sunny Saturday and Sunday with a high in the low to mid 60s, with morning lows in the 36-43 degree range. Another nor’easter will impact New Jersey and Long Island, but it won’t be as intense as the last one.

THANKSGIVING WEEK: The weather stays dry in Alabama for the first half of the week (Monday through Wednesday), with highs in the low to mid 60s and lows between 35-45 degrees. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, a passing cold front will bring a chance of showers, but the latest runs have suggested that rain amounts won’t be too heavy. Cooler and drier air returns for “Black Friday”. See the Weather Xtreme video for the graphics and thoughts on national weather since so many will be traveling.

The good news is that the last few runs of the GFS have shown no severe weather setups for Alabama for the rest of November, and we all know the weather can get pretty rough around here this time of the year as we are now in the core of our fall tornado season.

WEATHER BRAINS: Don’t forget you can listen to our weekly 90 minute netcast anytime on the web, or on iTunes. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including our meteorologists here at ABC 33/40. Scroll down for the show notes on the new episode we recorded last night.

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

I will be doing a weather program this morning at Striplin Elementary School in Gadsden… be looking for the next Weather Xtreme video here by 4:00 this afternoon… enjoy the day!
