Skies have cleared nicely this afternoon and have propelled many of us to the low 40s thanks to rapid warming with very dry air that is in place. We will see temperatures quickly plummet tonight to below freezing by the 6pm hour and into the 20s by 8pm. We will all bottom our tonight near 20, and Hard Freeze Warnings are up for Wayne, Choctaw, and Clarke (AL) counties. For safety precautions, click on the link to the Hard Freeze Warning at the top of the weather page. A link is also included.
Despite the cold start, we will return to the low 50s for Thanksgiving with sunny skies as high pressure slides over head. We will see another cold night for Friday with lows in the low to mid 20s, so if you are going out shopping overnight on Friday, make sure you dress warmly.
Lows stay below freezing into the weekend, but highs head back to 60 by Sunday as clouds begin to arrive ahead of our next system that will be approaching from the west. This system will touch off a few showers for us on Monday. We dry out again on Tuesday before another system comes down the pike on Wednesday, bringing us another shot at rain. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be the warmest days of the next seven.
