Rain Is Gone – Colder Air Moves In

Posted on: 10:36 pm, January 1, 2013, by , updated on: 10:37pm, January 1, 2013

The showers have now exited the Tennessee Valley and are south of I-59 as the cold front and associated band of rain continues moving south and east.  Below is a check of the latest radar as of 10:35 pm.

Behind the front the wind has shifted out of the north, ushering in a cooler and eventually drier air mass.  Expect the coldest temperatures tomorrow morning to be in southern middle Tennessee and Northwest Alabama, which will be around the freezing mark.  West of I-65 morning lows will likely be a little warmer, in the mid 30s. Tomorrow high temperatures will only reach into the mid 40s, under a partly cloudy sky.

Here are some of the past 24 hour rainfall totals through 10:00 pm this evening:

Huntsville:1.52″
Decatur:1.38″
Muscle Shoals:1.12″
Haleyville:1.71″
Scottsboro:1.05″
Fort Payne:1.51″
Gadsden:1.58″
Prospect, TN:0.96″
