- Wednesday through Friday morning projected lows: 40s
- Coldest air since May 2nd
- Little impact on daytime highs
- Dry air mass results in cool nighttime temperatures
It's not so much that the air is going to be colder behind a front that passes by on Tuesday morning, it's the fact that extremely dry air is expected to filter in. We look at dew point temperatures to get an idea of the moisture in the atmosphere. On a day like today, dew points in the lower 60s are noticeable. You can feel a little stickiness to the air and it even causes some peoples hair to curl. By the middle to end of next week, dew points are forecast to drop into the 30s. That's extremely dry air and it will mean two things: 1. We heat up quickly during the daytime. 2. We cool down quickly at night and drop closer to the dew point temperature. While I don't expect lows in the 30s, I do think we will see some spots in the northern portion of the WBRC viewing area dropping into the lower 40s.
