Southern Weather is the debut album by former Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie's solo-project, The Almost. It was released on April 3, 2007. The whole album was previewed on The Almost's MySpace page.[5][better source needed]

The album debuted at No. 39 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 29,000 copies in its first week.[6] As of July 11, 2007, the album has sold 123,972 copies in the U.S. There have been two singles released: "Say This Sooner" and "Southern Weather". Both have music videos, which can be seen on MySpace, Steelroots Top Ten Countdown, MTV, and fuse. "Say This Sooner" has also been released to mainstream radio and has reached as high as No. 7 on Modern Rock Tracks.

Southern Weather is the same in fashion to the Foo Fighter's debut self-titled album. Just like Grohl, Gillespie recorded all the instruments on the album and formed the band after the recording of the album.
