Temperatures are still in the 30’s this morning after many spots reached the upper 20’s overnight. Expect the temperatures to only climb into the 40’s this afternoon and with a gusty northwest wind it will feel even colder. The winds will go calm tonight allowing for most places to be colder than last night with maybe even some lower 20’s in the normally colder locations across north Alabama. Sunshine will remain the story through the work week with highs in the 50’s during the afternoons and chilly mornings. There will be a slight chance of a scattered shower late Saturday but nothing significant and Sunday then looks to be dry for the church activities. The next chance of precipitation might come from a low pressure system to our south late Monday into Tuesday. At the moment, it seems like the bulk of the moisture will remain south of our area so we will hold off putting the precipitation in our forecast until we have more confidence in what’s going to take place. Otherwise, next week will perhaps be even colder than this week at times with lows consistently well down into the 20’s and highs in the 40’s.
LONGE RANGE OUTLOOK: Weather models and patterns continue to paint a chilly picture at times over the first couple of weeks of December with perhaps some of the coldest air this season affecting the area at some point. At the moment, there is no imminent possibilities of any wintry precipitation but with a pattern like we will see it certainly is possible.
