​(Discussion)

We had an overcast, windy day in the Tennessee Valley, with periods of rain. The High in Cullman was 64, and our current temperature of 50 is our Low so far for the day. Temperatures are already starting to drop behind our cold front. Jasper is also down to 50 degrees now, and they saw a High of 66 today. Haleyville saw a High of 63 and are now down to 47. One thing we did not see today was any severe weather. There was a marginal risk for that mainly east of I-65. But the storms stayed below severe limits this afternoon and evening, just produced some gusty winds. 


You have to go to South Carolina or the Florida Panhandle to find any tree or power line damage from storms today. And around here, we definitely needed the rain. And it will be the last we see for a while. 






So that front continues to push through the region tonight, already bringing us some colder, drier air. 




Tomorrow looks to stay breezy and mostly cloudy, though we could see a gradual clearing trend and the sun peeking out at some point in the afternoon. High should be about 45, the Low tonight around 39-40. 

Tonight/tomorrow morning and then again tomorrow night, there is some slight concern for a wintry mix of rain and snow up in the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee, and that could even extend to the higher elevations of Northeast Alabama. But if that happens, little to no accumulation is expected. 

Then on Monday, high pressure moves in from the Southwest, the Ark-LA-Tex region. Should have plenty of sunshine Monday and warm up to about 50 degrees after starting the day around freezing. 

And it will still be lightly breezy at times, winds shifting to the North. 



Tuesday and Wednesday a clipper system will clip our region. But it doesn't look like it will bring us any rain. Just looks like a slight increase in clouds. And the pressure gradient will keep us breezy. On Tuesday we'll start the day near 30 degrees, then warm to almost 60 for the afternoon, upper 50's anyway. And for Wednesday, we'll start the day in the mid-30's or so with some clouds in place Tuesday night, then warm to the lower 50's Wednesday afternoon. 



Then behind that system, high pressure moves through the region, and sunshine returns in full force, with Highs in the 50's and Lows down around freezing again. Very seasonable. 


And it looks like we will stay mostly sunny for Saturday even as another cold front approaches. The moisture should stay West of us for the time being. High should get up to about 60 degrees, and the Low staying down in the mid-30's, or some colder pockets could still see lower 30's. 



If you can believe the global model guidance out to ten days this time, Sunday February 4th looks like we'll see scattered showers from this system, High in 50's and Low coming up to about 40 or so. 

Then Monday looks dry without much temperature modification.

For Tuesday looks like mostly sunny skies with drier air, so bring the Low back into 30's. High should still be about 50 or so, lower 50's. 

But since the model guidance has been sort of wishy-washy as far as this next weekend, I don't feel right about making a 10-Day-Outlook up top this time. This will be a standard 7-Day Forecast. You just get to read my speculations on beyond next Saturday if you take the time to read this discussion. 


We might see a trace of rain this coming week, but even that is questionable.
