I have a recorded live discussion on weather on my facebook page… Mark Prater WIAT 42. I will be live on FB again later tonight before the 10 PM. Like the page to get a notification of when I give you live videos.
Snow flurries and showers will continue on and off overnight and into early on Wednesday as this upper low which brought the colder air and snow showers begins to rotate to the north and east taking much of the moisture/snow and cloud cover with it. There will not be a whole lot in the way of accumulations, although there have been a few spots across the Tennessee Valley that have become lightly coated with snow on the ground.
Very cold temps will be in place overnight tonight and the winds will die down a bit, but not completely. The lows will be down into the upper teens and lower 20s across our viewing area early on Wednesday. Wind chills will be even colder where we have the slightest breeze to start the day on Wednesday, but the clouds will have cleared out in most areas, with the exception of spots in northeast Alabama.
While there is going to be plenty of sun on Wednesday afternoon, the temps will continue cold and only into the 30s across the viewing area. There will be a change in the jet stream and on Thursday which will allow for some warmer air to make it into the state which will help our temps warm into the upper 40s and lower 50s. We will stay in the 50s for highs through Friday and overnights will be down into the upper 20s and lower 30s through the end of the week.
An additional shot of colder air will dive into the state this weekend helping to plunge our highs back into the 30s and 40s and overnights will be back into the 20s. There will not be any precipitation this go around, but the active weather pattern will continue. The next chance of any precipitation into our area will be in here late on Sunday night and more into Monday. This again, will be a shot at light rain mixing with snow showers, but no accumulations expected at this time.
Be sure to tune into CBS 42 tonight at 5, 6, & 10 and Chief Meteorologist Mark Prater will have the latest on this little warm-up and details about your weekend forecast. Tune in!
