Showers East – Cooler Air Arrives
Light showers hold on this early evening over east Alabama. Jackson, DeKalb, and Marshall Counties have the best chance of getting wet through the late evening and overnight hours. If you are in Guntersville, Claysville, Albertville, Boaz, Scottsboro, Fort Payne, Henagar, and Valley Head, you will be get wet. Here is a look at Armor Storm Vision just after 8pm.
We tied a record high of 71° in Huntsville Sunday. With readings almost 20° above average getting close to Christmas, we all know cold air isn’t far away. Look at the chilly temperatures getting closer to the Tennessee Valley. We are holding on to 50s around 8pm, but it won’t be long until we are back in the deep freeze. Temperatures to our northwest are in the 20s and 30s. We’ll get a taste of that Christmas Eve into Christmas Day.
Here is the temperature trend over the next five days. Wednesday is Christmas Day and will be COLD especially in the morning. We’ll start in the upper teens for several spots. For the first time in a while, we don’t have any rain in the seven-day forecast. That’s not typical for December in Huntsville. It’s the wettest month of the year on average with almost six inches of rain annually.
