The Next 24 Hours – Thursday
A warming trend begins on Thursday after a cold night! A clear sky and light wind are usually a good recipe for a cold night, but since the ground is damp from cloudy, wet weather the past two days, we will also get a healthy frost and some patchy dense fog. Some of the fog could be “freezing fog” on cars, rooftops, sheds, etc.; however, we do not expect any significant travel problems from icy roads or anything of that sort on Thursday morning.
The warm-up begins at sunrise. Temperatures will rebound from the lower 30s to near 60 degrees with a sunny sky by mid-afternoon. A north breeze around 6 to 12 MPH will keep it from getting too warm on Thursday, but as the wind shifts on Friday and a strong Nor’easter moves up east of Maine, this cold air will be pulled east allowing warmer air to rush into the Tennessee Valley to end the week!
