Storm Team Saturday Afternoon Forecast (12/8/2012)

Posted at 3:13 PM, Dec 08, 2012

High pressure has weakened across the southeast east and with a south flow from the gulf along with an approaching front from the west, partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies are expected through the rest of the weekend with early morning fog. Temps will be much warmer than usual during the overnight period due to cloud cover acting like an insulator for the Big Bend; mid and upper 50s will be common. Afternoon highs will still reach into the upper 70s and low 80s Sunday afternoon. Front off the the west linking up with an upper level Low just west of the Mississippi River Valley move over Central Alabama by Sunday night and shows signs of stalling out. This means rain chances will linger over the area for a few days instead of the usual afternoon. Mondays rain potential will be 30% increasing to 40% by Tuesday and then showing signs of finally passing through by Wednesday but I am keeping a 30% chance for rain expecting the front to be a bit more sloppy than the models are indicating. Once we see signs of the front passing, Temps drop to seasonable levels. Highs in the upper 60s and low 70s by Tuesday decreasing and holding around the mid and upper 60s Wednesday through Friday with lows dropping from the mid 50s tonight to the low 40s by Tuesday.
