Wes: Moderate drought returns to AL; Showers possible on Wednesday
A moderate drought has returned to Alabama due to the abnormally dry weather conditions that we’ve experienced over the past several days.
A dry northerly flow will continue this evening under a mostly clear sky.
Temperatures may near the freezing mark in some of the outlying areas tomorrow morning, with patchy frost.
After the cold start in the morning, we will have more sunshine, with a nice warm-up into the mid to upper 60s.
Tuesday will also be another very dry day and a milder southerly flow will return, with highs in the upper 60s.
NEXT RAINMAKER: We will finally start to see some changes that involve a chance of rain on Wednesday as moisture increases in advance of a frontal system.
We will have increasing clouds with a chance for a few isolated showers during the day on Wednesday.
This cold front won’t be associated with a major push of frigid air, so while we will dry out again on Friday, I’m expecting a return to a more seasonal temperature pattern.
Highs will be in the 50s and 60s going into the weekend, with lows in the upper 30s and low 40s.
I do see the potential for some rain and storms around the December 5th/6th time frame as a stronger cold front impacts the region.
