Tuesday, December 5 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Tuesday! Temperatures are on the mild side as you’re waking up this morning, and there could be some patchy fog as you head out to work or school and though it won’t be that dense, be sure to use extra caution if you see some fog. Despite starting in the 60’s, highs will only get up to 67 by the afternoon as cloud cover and rain moves through due to a passing cold front. There will be some isolated showers in the morning hours and the main line of rain will not get into our area until around 11 a.m. and moves through our area from the northwest to the southeast, eventually moving out of west Alabama by around 6 p.m. There will be some leftover shower chances throughout the night, though most of the night will be dry with overcast skies. Winds will be from the SW at 10-20 mph during the day, and will shift to the north once the front passes and winds will die down to 8-12 mph for the evening. Temperatures won’t drop too low through the overnight hours due to cloud cover, with lows bottoming out around the 40 degree mark. Due to clouds and some isolated showers for Wednesday, highs will not even reach 50 for the good part of our area. And it’ll only get colder from there…

Thursday morning lows will be seasonable in the upper-30’s, but highs will only get to around 50, with overcast skies, and maybe a stray shower in the extreme southern parts of our area. Once clouds finally clear out, morning lows will get into the low-30’s and upper-20’s by Friday morning, with highs only around 47. We stay dry for the weekend, but morning lows on Sunday will be the mid-20’s. We at least warm up to the mid-50’s by Monday, but we’ll have to deal with a few days of bitterly cold temperatures.
