A Hint of Fall Cometh; Lows In The 50°’s Mid-Week

by | Aug 19, 2018 | Extreme Weather, Weather


While daytime temperatures will remain in the middle to upper 80°’s throughout next week, the overnight lows will offer a hint of fall particularly early Thursday and Friday morning,

Cullman County may see an overnight low around the 55° mark. We could also hit a record low temperature or two out of this unusual August weather anomaly.

Following a robust upper air trough bringing unsettled conditions Monday (rain showers and thunderstorms), the weather pattern will change quickly. The trailing air mass will bring drier air into our area Tuesday afternoon and early Wednesday. Much lower dewpoints are expected.

This dry weather with limited precipitable water levels ushers the chance for unseasonably cool morning lows on Thursday and Friday. Look for the mercury to drop into the lower and middle 60°’s with the potential sub-60 degree readings in Cullman.

Moisture values and overnight temperatures will begin to rise Friday into the weekend. This will eliminate the hint of fall as quickly as it came it.

This brief cool nighttime cool snap should be very welcome for as long as it lasts.
