Unsettled Weather Returns

Two areas of moisture are a big concern across the United States this morning. One is a developing winter storm across the middle of the nation that will drop over a foot of snow for several locations. Another is a band locally heavy rain and thunderstorms along the gulf coast.

The moisture across south Alabama moves into the Tennessee Valley last this afternoon into tonight increasing our chance of wet weather. Severe weather isn’t likely, but pockets of locally heavy rain and strong winds are possible through the overnight. Wind Advisories are up across most of the viewing audience with gusts over 30 mph today.

There is another change down the road. A large trough of low pressure sets up shop along the east coast later this week bringing in much colder temperatures. This could be longest cold snap we’ve had this winter season if this pans out. We’ll have to watch several small disturbances crossing the area bringing a few snow flurries or sprinkles as well. Highs for later this week and for the weekend will likely hold in the 30s and 40s. Stay tuned for a colder end to February.
