Check out the March Climate Summary for Huntsville and Muscle Shoals. It wasn't your imagination - it was unusually warm.
And I would urge everyone to listen to the latest WeatherBrains podcast, featuring meteorologists from around the country discussing the April 27th, 2011 Super-Outbreak as well as other recent severe weather events. You really see the human side of these guys in a rare way, and I was paradoxically comforted to realize that I wasn't alone in under-forecasting that day . . . it doesn't sound like anybody knew it was going to be that kind of 40-year-historic event until it was already happening. #mixedfeelings
It was a beautiful day in the Tennessee Valley with plenty of sunshine. High here in Huntsville was 75. Low was 50. Very low humidity. Calm winds. Awesome day . . . I spent a lot of time outside.
So we're between systems - the rain we had on Tuesday and the other front that is knocking on our door. Frankly, though, this second front is looking very minor. Earlier in the week, I had some concern about it, but . . . looks like we'll get some rain showers, maybe a stray thunderstorm, and that's about it.
Let's look at the details . . .
By Sunday the front has passed on through, and it's looking like a clear passage with little or no moisture left around, so I'm going with sunny skies and a temperature only in the upper 60's. Morning Low down in the 40's.
And temperatures will gradually start to moderate throughout the week, but it looks like we stay mostly sunny through Thursday.
It is good to be the bearer of good news. And on that note, I think I will end this blog. Most of you already know, I didn't make it through college at UAH, and I'm probably going to have to just get a "real" job now to pay back all the loans . . . haha. If there is a way to get back into the weather stuff, I'll try it, but I'm also trying to be a realist. And I guess as a sign off, I just want to say that I've got friends in low places . . . and I love all of y'all to death. Thank you a million times over for supporting this silly little dream of mine, and it was fun while it lasted.
