Today will be an another sunny day with highs ranging from the upper 50s across North Alabama, to the mid 60s along the Gulf Coast. The weather will stay dry through Friday with sunny cool days and fair cold nights.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: A surface low is forecast to develop in the northern Gulf of Mexico Friday night, and will bring a risk of rain to parts of the state over the weekend. No risk of severe storms this time, and the rain amounts should be generally light, under 1/4 inch. Global models remain in poor agreement; the European global model keeps the low well to the south and east of Alabama, with very little rain here. The GFS (American) model shows a higher coverage of rain; we will have much better clarity over the few days. Highs will be around 60, with lows in the 40s.
NEXT WEEK: At this point the week looks dry with seasonal temperatures; highs in the 57-65 degree range, with lows in the 30s and 40s. And, the pattern continues to favor mild Pacific air over the contiguous U.S. through late December with above average temperatures… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
