Very Cold Nights Ahead

As the sky clears and high pressure moves in, temperatures will fall

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — An interesting day across the Tennessee Valley. Some much colder air moved in and temperatures fell during the course of the afternoon. Today's high temperatures actually occurred between 12:00 and 1:00 this morning. 

Winds out of the northwest moved over Wheeler Lake this afternoon which actually set the stage for Lake Effect Snow across portions of northeast Alabama. This was most noticed in the area of Brindlee Mountain where snow accumulated quickly. 

The snow will end as we head into the overnight, but we should hold onto the north wind of 10-15 mph. This will allow temperatures to drop into the 20s and wind chills to drop into the teens and 20s when we head out for work and school Tuesday morning.

We'll see a change in our weather pattern as the area of low pressure that brought the snow both to the southeast and the Midwest begins to move into the New England States. This allows high pressure to set up across the Tennessee Valley.

The good news here is that we'll actually see plenty of sunshine thanks to the aforementioned high. The bad news is that our winds remain northerly which means cold air advection will still be a thing. Temperatures will only climb into the low 40s. 

We'll cool off again Tuesday night and start the day Wednesday in the mid-20s. Wednesday afternoon should bring high temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s. Our next chance of rain will come on Thursday before we see a quiet pattern to end the week.
