First Full Day Of Fall!
The Fall season officially kicked off yesterday morning, but today is the first Full Day of Fall. After a pair of cold fronts made their way across the Tennessee Valley yesterday, a much cooler and drier air air mass continues to move into the region. Temperatures this morning ranged from the mid 40s in the eastern valleys near Fort Payne & Scottsboro, to the mid 50s around the Shoals. Despite the chilly start to the day, it was much colder farther north in the Upper Midwest, after it snowed in Deluth and other areas yesterday morning, some temperatures got down into the low to mid 20s this morning! Thankfully we were not that cold, but Monday morning will be colder than this morning with temperatures in the 40s!
Temperatures are warming nicely this morning, check out the 9:00 am temperatures across the Tennessee Valley!
Today will be unseasonably cool with highs warming mostly into the mid 70s, which is around 10 degrees cooler than yesterday and 7-8 degrees below average for late September. Expect a sunny sky to persist with such a dry air mass in place, there is lack of moisture for cloud development. Also there will be a pleasant northerly breeze between 5-15 mph. Check out the beautiful view from our downtown Huntsville camera looking towards Monte Sano.
Tonight, with the full effect for the cold Canadian air mass, temperatures for most will cool into the mid 40s, with some of the normally cooler spots in the low 40s. After a chilly start, afternoon temperatures will rebound in the mid 70s Monday afternoon. A slow warming trend will occur throughout the work week, with highs in the mid 80s for the second half of the week and morning lows in the upper 50s and low 60s. Despite an increase in cloud cover Tuesday associated with a few disturbances, the work week will be mostly to partly sunny, with dry conditions. The rain looks to stay to our north throughout the work week, with rain chances returning to the forecast next weekend.
