Weather Forecast Friday December 28, 2018

News

Good evening Tennessee Valley and a very happy Friday! The rain moved out of the Tennessee Valley this morning, and actually so did a lot of the cloud cover behind the cold front. That let temperatures creep their way into the low and even mid-60s across much of the area this afternoon. Now onto the rain. Total wise we broke the old single day record for rain at the Huntsville International Airport. On December 27, 2018 HSV saw 2.12” beating the old record of 2.10”. Adding up yesterday and today HSV saw a total of 3.06”. The sad part is that 3.06” is on the lower end. Cullman comes in as the winner with 4.71” of rain Thursday and then what also fell Friday morning, Totals east of I-65 were generally much higher than those west.

Still a flood warning will remain in effect for Lauderdale and Colbert counties until further notice in regards to the Tennessee River. 

That being said, we do get to enjoy a dry day tomorrow under partly sunny skies. It does look as if clouds will be on the increase getting into the late afternoon and early evening. 

This break wont last very long as our next system will also be developing across the SW on Saturday and then it will push east on Sunday. This will once again increase SW flow into the Tennessee Valley bringing in moisture allowing scattered showers to develop, but also warranting overcast skies.  Rain chances will increase through the day Sunday so I am confident the entire day will not be a washout.

Again with this system will be another cold front that should push through Tuesday morning. Essentially we’re kind-of repeating what we just had Thursday and this morning. Again most could be talking about high rain totals on the order of 1-2 inches. 

Wednesday and Thursday may bring scattered chances for showers, but the next completely dry day looks to be next Saturday. That would be January 5, 2019.
