Dry Through The Weekend; Warmer Afternoons

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.

THIS MORNING: Looks like the clouds didn’t want to exit the state last night as expected; they linger this morning over much of Alabama. Accordingly, temperatures aren’t quite as cold as expected, with mostly mid to upper 30s around here.

Bone crushing subsidence will mean the clouds go away very quickly during the next couple of hours, and we are still forecasting a sunny day. Model guidance is a bit cooler with a high today now expected to be in the mid 50s.

TOMORROW/FRIDAY: These days will be dry with lots of sun and warming trend. We reach the low 60s tomorrow, followed by mid 60s Friday. Tomorrow morning will be cold with a low near freezing, but the low early Friday will be closer to 40.

A MILD START TO DECEMBER: The weekend looks dry and very mild for the season, with a high in the 67 to 71 degree range Saturday and Sunday. We are forecasting a mix of sun and clouds both days.

The weather stays dry and mild Monday, but a cold front is due in here Tuesday night, which will bring a round of showers and storms, followed by cooler weather Wednesday. The latest GFS in hand (06Z run) hints the main window for showers and storms next week will come from about 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through 4:00 a.m. Wednesday, with rain amounts of about 1/2 inch likely.

VOODOO COUNTRY: The 06Z GFS shows a severe weather setup here around the weekend of December 8-9… of course this could change, but it is something to watch. Sure looks like December will be changeable with periods of mild and cold weather with a few decent rain/storm events in between. See the Weather Xtreme video for the graphics and details.

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.

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

I will be over in Pell City this morning doing a weather program at Walter Kennedy Elementary School…. be looking for the next Weather Xtreme video here by 4:00 this afternoon… enjoy the day!
