Here comes the cold...

As promised, we've dropped into the deep freeze here in North Alabama. As of 6:15 this morning, the ole thermometer reads 13.5 here in northern Cullman County. I think we need to drop 1/10th of a degree more so we can claim it was 13 instead of 14. Hey, if it's going to be this cold, what's 1/10th of a degree among friends?

Of further concern, this bitter cold isn't going away soon. Despite the fact that the Weather Channel and many others were forecasting highs in the 50's this week, it's becoming more apparent that this will not happen. We will have some reinforcing shots of cold air during the week. I would be surprised if we get out of the 40's this week. Some days we won't get out of the 30's.

In addition to the cold, a winter storm threat may be on the horizon Wednesday night into Thursday. As James Spann has been telling us for over a week, someone in the south will probably get hit. At the moment, the Tennessee Valley might be in the bull's eye.

More to come later!
