Briefly cooler than normal and then an above average weather pattern quickly takes over this weekend and lingers through all of next week. Temperatures are quite chilly on this Black Friday with temperatures early on in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Sunshine will help to boost temperatures into the lower 50s this afternoon, if you wanted to squeeze in some shopping or a walk when the temperatures aren't so bad.
It looks like the jet stream in the coming days will take a dip southward but will not be as amplified as before and so instead of sending extreme cold and wet weather our way, it will only allow a cold front to tease the state before lifting back northward. So the dips won't be as extreme and we'll see a milder pattern as a result.
SHORT TERM FORECAST: BLACK FRIDAY
LONG TERM FORECAST: NEXT 7 DAY HIGHS
COLD FRONT NEARS ON MONDAY: SHOWERS POSSIBLE NORTH ALABAMA
JET STREAM SHIFTS AND FRONT LIFTS ON TUESDAY
So it's back to saving a few bucks than having to run the heat as much!
Have a great day,
