Strong cold front sends temperatures plunging — FIRST ALERT FORECAST

06 December 2017, 12:39 | Lowell Little

Warm Tuesday, but wet snow possible late this week

Could Alabama see a few snowflakes late this week? It's not certain but it is certainly possible according to the National Weather Service. Parts of north and even central Alabama could see a few snow showers to even a light dusting especially on Friday

We'll start off the week with temperatures above average for this time fo the year, but a mid week cold front will bring the week to a chilly end. It will be a bitterly cold day with fresh, gusty north to northwest breezes and afternoon temperatures of just 3 to 6 degrees. At the moment, it looks like rain will spread from the west on Saturday night and will turn to snow for a time as it meets the cold air.

The inflow of arctic air is expected to bring plenty of sunny spells, but the temperature will be far lower than the milder weather the United Kingdom is now experiencing.

Temperatures will run 18° to 24° above normal Monday with high temperatures in the lower to middle 60°s.

Tuesday will be warmer, with a high in the mid-50s, with rain likely in the afternoon.

Friday morning starts off with lingering cold rain showers along the coast and a slight risk of rain in the Pee Dee, a cold rain/winter mix in NC.

However, the bottom line is that you should never believe a detailed United Kingdom snow forecast more than three days ahead.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Mead forecasts the cold and wintry weather headed to mid-Michigan.

High temperatures will go from mid-60s to 70s today, to highs around the mid-30s to 40s beginning Thursday. Sunny spells will be interspersed with showers of rain, sleet and snow. We're certainly looking at a more interesting pattern, which is often the case in December, and we will have lots to talk about in my forecast tonight.

The beaches and most of the Pee Dee will only get a very cold rain late this week, but our North Carolina counties will get very close to the freezing mark Friday and Saturday morning. Temperatures should be in the low 30°s by Tuesday evening.
