The dry air over Alabama will heat very effectively today, and most places will enjoy a high in the low 60s with maximum available sunshine.

TOMORROW THROUGH THE WEEKEND: The warm-up continues. The high tomorrow will be in the mid 60s, and then very close to 70 degrees Saturday and Sunday. The sky will be partly to mostly sunny, and nights won’t be as cold; the early morning low tomorrow will be around 40, and close to 50 Saturday and Sunday.

A high of 70 for the first of December is ten degrees above average. We should note Alabama’s warmest December temperature on record is 80 degrees, recorded on December 7, 1951.

NEXT WEEK: We stay very mild Monday with a high at or just over 70, but a cold front is due in here Tuesday night or early Wednesday. This front will bring some risk of showers to the state, but the latest GFS runs, and the ECWMF, both show that rain will be relatively light, and there won’t be any problem with severe weather. And, the air following the front will be cooler, but not really cold for December.

LAND OF VOODOO: The weather looks very changeable for the rest of December. The GFS hints at a cold front on Saturday December 8 with a chance of showers/storms, followed by much colder air the following day. Another similar front shows up around December 12. See the Weather Xtreme video for the graphics and details.
