Halloween Morning: Warm Air, Wind, Rain, & Now Colder Temperatures

What a crazy start your Halloween! We woke up to rain and milder temperatures. Everyone started in the lower 70s, but that changed in a hurry. We dropped several degrees in just a few minutes with a strong cold front moving through. On television this morning, it was 58° at Huntsville International, while we were still at 68° in downtown Huntsville.  Look at the temperature change from 5am to 9am!

That’s right we dropped 26° in four hours! Winds were also gusting over 30 mph through the morning commute. He is a look at the wind gusts around 7am this morning.
