Nice by November Standards

| November 18, 2012 @ 2:31 pm

It has been a beautiful day across Central Alabama, much like yesterday. Some clouds worked into East Alabama this morning, wrapped in the circulation around an upper low off the coast of South Carolina. Those clouds dissipated pretty quickly however, as they encountered the much drier air over Alabama. Under near total sunshine, temperatures were already in the 60s by early afternoon rising toward their appointed rounds with highs in the middle 60s.

More clouds were trying to make the westward trek across Georgia, but they will also have a hard time. Some of them should make it into Alabama tonight and skies tomorrow will be partly cloudy. It will be hard to beat tomorrow for late November, with morning readings in the lower 40s, rising back into the middle and upper 60s by afternoon.

A fairly strong little disturbance will carve its way towards Alabama late Monday night through Tuesday. It will increase our clouds and provide a few scattered showers as it passes. But don’t get your hopes up in the rainfall department. Amounts will be spotty and light.

High pressure will build right over Alabama by Wednesday, giving us a fine run of weather for the Thanksgiving holiday. Expect partly cloudy conditions through early Friday, with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s.

There is fairly good agreement among the models that we will see a cold front pass through Friday night. It will be accompanied by a few clouds and the slight chance of a shower, but again, don’t get too excited. Cooler and dry air will swoop back in for the weekend.
