A windy night with a cold front on the way

A cold, windy night

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The south wind will pick up throughout the night and be sustained at 20 mph by sunrise Wednesday morning.

As we go through the morning hours wind gusts up to 30 mph will spread across north Alabama and Middle Tennessee. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will track from west to east through the late morning and early afternoon hours. Some of the storms could produce some isolated wind damage due to wind gusts up to 50 mph.

The cold front will move in during the evening hours.

Thanksgiving is looking great! Highs will return to the middle 60s Thursday afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds. Clouds return Friday and a few showers will be possible Friday into Saturday. Highs will be around 60 with an east wind both days.

We are monitoring a developing storm system that will track across the Southeast Sunday into Monday. At this time, it looks like we will see widespread rainfall Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. The threat for severe storms could develop to our southeast over parts of south Alabama and Georgia. The forecast guidance is trending with much colder air spreading across the area overnight into Monday morning. This could lead to snow flurries as the rain comes to an end.

There also is the possibility of snow showers early Monday with temperatures in the middle 30s. We will be watching the trend of this developing storm. If the center of the storm trends farther north, that would increase our chances for stronger storms and lessen the chance for snow.

Have a great evening.
