Good Wednesday morning everyone!
It's a quiet start on Doppler radar this morning with clear skies overhead.
We are once again quite cold out this morning with temps that don't appear to be as cold as yesterday on the thermometer. But the light breeze from the north that we have is adding to the chill. Wind chills started off the day in the 30s widespread over the Panhandle for the morning drive.
We'll all need the shades again today as we'll be off to another sunny and cool day ahead. Yesterday's highs only reached the low 60s and today will be quite similar. A secondary weak cold front will actually slide by today reinforcing yesterday's chill with the help of high pressure sliding down south out of the Northern Plains and residing over Louisiana by the day's end. That keeps us in a northerly flow through the day and also keeps our skies nice and clear right through tomorrow as the high slides east and passes over the Panhandle.
By Friday, winds will return from the south as the high slides out into the Atlantic and our next frontal system begins to take shape over the Southern Plains. We'll start a warming trend heading into Friday and the weekend as a warm front develops out of Texas and slides over the southeast. The warm front will stall out across Mississippi and Alabama to our north which could provide just enough lift in the Southeast to set off a few scattered showers.
Rain chances for us this weekend, however, with the front and main source of lift stalled out to our north will remain low unless the front drifts a bit further south, which could be the case on Sunday.
For today, abundant sunshine with seasonally chilly temps in the low to mid 60s this afternoon and slight breeze from the north. Your 7 Day forecast will continue the chilly trend for at least one more day before rebounding temps head our way for the weekend.
