MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Fun fact: our next full moon is about to happen! On December 12th (12.12) the “Cold Moon” will be present in the sky; according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this moon gets it named because of the cold temperatures that are experienced during the month of December in North America. It will officially become “full” at 12:12am (eastern time). Pretty cool timing, right?
Tonight will be seasonable cold in the 30s and we will have a mostly clear sky... perfect conditions for going out and viewing that Cold Moon!
Enjoy the break from the rain, because it likely will be brief! We’ll stay dry now through the first half of Thursday, then a low-chance of a few showers returns by tomorrow evening.
Moisture from the Gulf lifts north into our area, allow for more cloudy cover and the return of rain. At first, activity will be hit or miss, so not everyone is guaranteed to see rain Thursday - the overnight looks to be wetter though...
On and off showers look to remain in the forecast through the first half of Friday, and then those will gradually taper off. That’s good news for the upcoming weekend... besides the possibility for a few lingering showers early Saturday, we’ll stay dry and comfortable. Temperatures will be in the 60s both Saturday and Sunday.
Another front will bring rain early next week, and once again a big drop in temperatures is expected! Highs near either side of 70° Monday will likely drop into the upper 40s by Wednesday afternoon.
