What we track out there today will be cold, just not Arctic kind of cold. That's well above average-high temperatures for this time of year are in the low 60s.
Wednesday: We'll likely see a little more rain - forecasters expect a 30 to 50 percent chance of showers and highs between 50 and 55 degrees.
The past week has seen Arctic air and snow affect the United Kingdom, and with another cold blast later this week, there is much excitement about the prospect of snow. Highs will not climb out of the 40s for most and rain will begin spreading in from the west for the morning commute.
Tuesday unseasonably warm air moves in with mid to low 70s likely!
At midnight on Friday, virtually every coastline across the nation will be engulfed in snow with low-level settling snow possible "anywhere", according to Weather Outlook. That being said, I have seen these systems produce snow showers and some brief accumulations, more often over far northeast Alabama. "There will be wintry showers consisting of hail and snow, but it looks like Dublin won't be hit too hard compared to the north-west".
"2010 was exceptionally cold in December and, since then, December months have been relatively mild, in fact, 2015 was exceptionally mild, it broke all records for being mild and wet as well", Steven Keates, a meteorologist at the Met Office told the Telegraph. Will the precipitation coincide with the coldest air to give Alabamians an early white-ish Christmas?
If this evaporative cooling continues for long enough, the rain can eventually turn to snow. The likelihood of snow will increase in the evening and night as temperatures fall between -2 and +1 degrees. Temperatures were in the lower 40's at the onset of this event but as the rain continued to fall, well so did the temperatures.
Saturday will be cold and mainly dry with sunny spells and again temperatures will struggle to rise about 3-6 degrees Celsius.
