Tuesday Morning: A cloudy, chilly, and breezy day ahead; Light Freeze Tonight

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…The system that caused a severe weather outbreak across the Deep South has cleared to our east. Now, a much colder air mass is settling into our area. Low-level clouds will linger through most of the day with gradual clearing into the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will only top out in the upper 40s to lower 50s this afternoon. Overall, Tuesday will be cloudy, chilly, and windy.

Areas mainly along and north of I-10/I-12 will fall around 31°F to 32°F by Wednesday morning, which means a light freeze is expected. Some locations south of I-10 may only fall to around 33°F to 34°F, but patchy frost can still be expected. Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler Wednesday night/Thursday morning; therefore, another light freeze is expected. Be sure to bring the pets indoors and keep them warm. If they must be outdoors, make sure they have a warm and dry shelter. The opening of the shelter must face away from the wind to make sure they stay warm. Also, bring your plants indoors or cover sensitive vegetation.

Wednesday morning wind chills

Wednesday: A frigid start with wind chills in the 20s. Thankfully, the wind is expected to relax a good bit throughout the day. Sunny with highs in the low and mid 50s. Light freeze is expected overnight.
Thursday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the mid-50s.
Friday: Mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s to around 60.
Weekend: We are monitoring the potential for another system to move into the area. Some models show a mostly dry weekend, others show a wet weekend. For now, we are forecasting a slight chance for rain with highs in the 60s.
Christmas Outlook: The forecast confidence this weekend and beyond is quite low, but as of right now, Christmas and Christmas Eve look to be warmer than average.
