Gainesville, Georgia to Huntsville, Alabama

Somehow, it’s a longer drive from Gainesville to Huntsville than it is from Louisville to Knoxville. It will take a little more than half a day, with a total coverage of 242 miles. The drive through Atlanta will really slow us down, and our rate of speed will be a mere 56.3mph. Let’s get ready to rumble.

High pressure lies over the southeastern United States right now, and there appears to be no significant threat (from the weather) for our journey tomorrow. It will be a pleasant day in the 60s, maybe even in the low 70s by the time we get to Huntsville. Watch out for traffic in Atlanta, but otherwise, enjoy the drive.

In a dome

Huntsville has enjoyed it’s time west of some daily unsettled weather in the Carolinas, and east o a massive system presently moving through the Mississippi Valley. This meant a fairly well clustered forecasts, and thus, forecast results in northern Alabama. As a circumstance, the top forecasters, the Weather Service and Weatherbug were only a couple degrees better than the worst, The Weather Channel.

Huntsville, Alabama

Huntsville was once the home of the space program and is currently home to one of the smallest National Weather Service offices.

At 853AM, CT, Huntsville was reporting a temperature of 66 degrees with partly cloudy skies. Dew points in the 50s were only going to rise with temperatures, as a strong trough over the Rockies was going to move into the High Plains through the day today, which will induce a strong southerly flow across the most of the southeast, and generate a good deal of instability west of the Appalachians.
Over the next two days, a focusing front will develop over Texas and the Southern Plains. Showers will persist north of Huntsville, as well, but convergence in northern Alabama will not be an issue. Expect warm, humid weather to continue in Huntsville, with the wet weather ringing them in the warm sector of the massive system to the northwest.

Not bad for Huntsville, if you don’t mind the heat. Additionally, thunderstorms will certainly be moving into Huntsville later this week. Nothing now, fortunately for any outdoor enthusiasts.
