The Next 24 Hours – Thursday
November begins on Thursday, and it will be a typical November day for the Tennessee Valley. The average high on November 1st is 69º F in Huntsville, and the average low is 46º F. It will start out quite a bit below “average” in the morning with temperatures near freezing, but by mid-afternoon, Thursday will have turned out to be a nice day! Expect a high in the middle 60s with a west-northwest breeze around 10-15 MPH.
There is a Freeze Warning in effect for all of the Tennessee Valley through the night and into Thursday morning, and this is right on schedule! The average first freeze of the season usually occurs between the last week of October and the first week of November.
Meteorite Update – WHNT News 19 is still following some NASA scientists closely as they try to determine if there are any meteorite fragments scattered across North Alabama. NASA has not given us an exact location of the search, but we have narrowed it down to southeastern Lawrence County in the Bankhead National Forest or in some of the neighboring counties (Morgan, Winston and Cullman). You can expect updates here on Valleywx.com as we learn more and more about that big fireball and sonic boom from Tuesday!
