Alabama Skies: Major weather changes coming!

Published 8:38 pm Wednesday, October 25, 2023

We’re in for some big changes in our weather forecast next week! If you’re someone tired of summer hanging around, you’ll be quite happy. No, it’s certainly nothing like the click-bate on some sites a couple weeks ago calling for snow and freezing temperatures deep into the state, but we could dip below freezing in extreme northern Alabama Tuesday night.

We could also have our first hints of frost across the northern half of the state Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Right now, the changes to a more seasonal pattern look like they’ll begin Monday in northern Alabama. We’ll have more specific timing over the next day or two.

If you’re familiar with those ads and commercials for a certain candy bar making someone have a better attitude, someone may want to offer one to Hurricane Tammy. After we’ve been watching models turn it towards the north and then to the west, you’ll see on the graphic that models really aren’t sure which direction it’s going to go now. We’ll keep watching, but there’s no threat to the Gulf Coast states anytime soon, if at all.
