A Few Showers Late Tomorrow/Tomorrow Night : The Alabama Weather Blog

3 min read

BLUE SKY: We have sunshine in full force across Alabama today with temperatures mostly in the 70s at mid-afternoon. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 44-52 degree range.

TOMORROW/FRIDAY: Clouds will increase across Alabama tomorrow, and we will mention a chance of showers tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night ahead of a cold front. Moisture will be limited, and dynamic support weak, meaning rain amounts will be light and spotty. Most places will see under a quarter of an inch, and some communities won’t get enough rain to measure.

Showers end Friday morning, and a new surge of dry air will punch into the state Friday afternoon with a clearing sky. Highs remain in the low to mid 70s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Look for sunny mild days and clear cool nights over the weekend. Highs remain in the 70s, with lows in the 40s and 50s. Perfect autumn weather.

NEXT WEEK: The weather stays dry for much of the week with highs holding in the 70s… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: Recent visible satellite images indicate that the circulation associated with an area of low pressure (Invest 94L) located about 700 miles east of the Windward Islands is gradually becoming better defined. In addition, the associated shower and thunderstorm activity is becoming more organized, and satellite-derived wind data indicated that the system is already producing winds to tropical storm force. Continued development is anticipated, and a tropical storm is expected to form later today or tonight while moving westward or west-northwestward toward the Lesser Antilles.

Interests in the Lesser Antilles should continue to monitor the progress of the disturbance. Advisories may be initiated on this system as early as later this afternoon, and could include the issuance of watches for some of the islands. Regardless of development, this system has the potential to bring gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and flash flooding to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning on Friday.

The system will turn north, heading out to sea well east of the contiguous U.S. NHC gives it a 90 percent chance of development.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: For the high school games Friday night we expect a clearing sky with temperatures falling from near 65 at kickoff, into the upper 50s by the final whistle.

Saturday, UAB will host Memphis at Protective Stadium in downtown Birmingham (11a CT kickoff)… the sky will be sunny with temperatures rising from near 68 at kickoff, to around 72 degrees by the fourth quarter.

Alabama hosts Tennessee at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa (2:30p CT kickoff). It will be a fine fall afternoon with temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

And, Auburn will host Ole Miss Saturday evening (6:00p CT kickoff) at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Expect a clear sky with temperatures falling from near 70 at kickoff, into the low 60s by the final whistle.

ON THIS DATE IN 1916: A tropical depression organized to a tropical storm on October 11 in the western Caribbean. It moved westward, reaching hurricane strength on the 13th before hitting the Yucatán Peninsula on the 15th as a 110 mph hurricane. It weakened over land, and it emerged over the southern Gulf of Mexico as a tropical storm. It quickly re-strengthened to a Category 3 hurricane, hitting Pensacola on October 18. The maximum wind velocity at Mobile was 115 mph from the east at 8:25 am. Pensacola had winds of 120 mph at 10:13 am when the wind instrument tower was blown down.

ON THIS DATE IN 2007: A destructive fall tornado hit Nappanee, Indiana causing extensive damage along its 20-mile path across northeast Marshall, Northwest Kosciusko and southwest Elkhart Counties. High-end EF3 intensity winds near 165 mph were estimated based on the most severe damage over southeast Nappanee. Over 100 structures sustained significant damage or were destroyed in town alone. Despite the widespread damage and time of day, only minor injuries were reported.

Look for the next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow…
