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.

PATCHY ICE ISSUES THIS MORNING: While the sky is clear, temperatures are generally below freezing from Birmingham north and east, and where moisture lingered on roads overnight we have some ice issues. Getting many reports of wrecks this morning, so take it easy on your way in to work or school this morning.

With a bright sunny sky we project a high in the low 50s. Icing on the bridges will fade quickly once the sun is up for an hour or two.

We stay dry over the weekend; highs mostly in the 50s, lows mostly in the 30s with a good deal of sunshine both days.

COLD SHOT NEXT WEEK: What looks to be the coldest air so far this season will invade Alabama early next week. Highs drop into the 40s Monday, and the GFS is printing a high of only 43 Tuesday; I expect a number of communities won’t get out of the 30s. The coldest morning will be Tuesday, with lows in the 17-22 degree range are likely. Wednesday morning will feature another hard freeze before we begin a warming trend Wednesday afternoon. The cold air is very dry and there won’t be any risk of snow this time.

Looks like our next chance of showers will come at the end of next week with a cold front.

THE LAND OF VOODOO: Still signs of potential mischief late in the month, but model consistency is not very good. Take a few minutes and watch the Weather Xtreme video for details and all the graphics.

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 doing a program this morning at Greenville Elementary School down in Butler County… it will be my first trip back to that campus since I left 4th grade so many years ago. Can’t wait. Look for the next Weather Xtreme video here by 4:00 this afternoon… enjoy the day…
