Alabama in the Deep Freeze

J.B. Elliott of listed low temperatures across the state for this morning. My low in Huntsville was 12.3. A few locations on his list saw single digit readings:

5 Grantley
6 Hamilton
7 Russellville Airport
8 Ashby, Hokes Bluff, Lincoln, Hytop, Millport
9 Scrougeout, Moody, Cottondale, Cedar Bluff, Pinson, Madison, Dora

At my location in Huntsville, temperatures have been at or below freezing from Friday January 1, 2010 at 4 p.m. nonstop through noon today. That is 116 hours of consecutive freezing weather and counting.

It will be interesting to see if we briefly make it above freezing today, as predicted. If not, the consecutive freezing hour streak will probably go on for several more days. Snow accumulations of around 1-2 inches are expected tomorrow and temperatures way down into the single digits are expected for the weekend.

The extremes at my location yesterday (January 5) were a low 12.4F and a high of 31.6F in NE Huntsville. On January 4th the low was 16.3 and the high was 28.3.
