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.

NICE WARM-UP: A very nice temperature recovery for Alabama today. Most places started the day below freezing; this afternoon we are seeing low 60s around here with a cloudless sky. Tonight won’t be as cold as last night; most places will wind up somewhere between 36 and 42, but the colder valleys over Northeast Alabama might make a run at freezing.

TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: The warming trend continues. We reach the mid 60s tomorrow, and the high Saturday and Sunday will be very close to 70 degrees to kick off the month of December. The sky will be partly to mostly sunny, and there is no significant chance of rain. Early morning lows will be in the 45-50 degree range.

NEXT WEEK: The 12Z GFS continues the idea of a cold front passing through Tuesday night with a decaying band of showers along with light rain amounts. We will still enjoy a high around 70 degrees Monday and Tuesday, but temperatures drop a bit Wednesday with a high in the low 60s. Thursday and Friday of next week look dry and pleasant.

LONG RANGE: The GFS still likes the idea of a cold front passing through Alabama Saturday December 8 with a good chance of showers and storms, followed by a sharp but temporary change to colder weather Sunday 12/9. See the Weather Xtreme video for details… until the omega block breaks down over the Bering Sea cold snaps down here won’t last too long.

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…
