Big changes ahead

North Alabama will see a few decent opportunities for rain between now and the end of the year. It will be interesting to see if this will affect 2007's place in the record book for least rainfall. The first shot at rain will be this evening. Models are hinting at a greater amount of rain on Friday. This may depend on whether a mass of thunderstorms near the Gulf Coast chokes off our moisture supply.

The big news next week will be an intrusion of very cold air. Models have been pointing to this possibility for some time and it now appears likely that the coldest air of the season will arrive by this time next week. It is to early to pin down numbers, but it seems safe to say that temperatures will drop into the teens or lower. Highs will be in the 30's and we may have a day or two that we struggle to make it above freezing. Stay tuned!
