Frankly, I'm a little tired of our weather. I talk to my mom in Frostproof, Florida today and she was bragging about the sunshine and 82 degrees. Meanwhile, we have highs in the 50s, heavy rain at times, and you can't see your hand in front of your face for the fog. I took this picture at the St. Clair County airport this morning looking down Runway 21. The ceiling was down to 200ft with 1 mile visibility.
Needless to say, there wasn't any flying going on there today. The big guys like Southwest and Delta were having enough challenges getting into Birmingham today with conditions almost minimum for an ILS approach.
Fortunately, frozen precipitation is not in the forecast nor is severe weather. This is just a wet setup with tropical moisture streaming in ahead of a stronger cold front. Once the front moves through the atmosphere will be cleansed of the most of the moisture and we'll enjoy a few dry days between systems. But, don't expect any major changes anytime soon. I have rain in the forecast through at least the first half of Tuesday. The NAM is indicating some clearing by Tuesday afternoon/evening with a good shot of cold air.
High pressure will build across the Southeast Wednesday and Thursday giving way to plenty of sunshine. Keep in mind temperatures will remain cold with lows below freezing. More rain is on the way again late Friday into Saturday. This could be yet again another very wet system.
We'll have plenty of details tonight on Fox 6 News at 9pm.
