COLDER: Following a cold front that passed through Alabama late last night, we will experience noticeably colder air today. Temperatures won’t get out of the 40s over the northern third of the state despite a sunny sky. A north wind of 8-16 mph will make it feel colder. The wind will die down tonight, and with a clear sky we expect temperatures to fall into the 22-32 degree range early tomorrow morning. Freezing temperatures are likely all the way down to I-10.
Tomorrow will be a sunny day with a high in the 57-60 degree range. Then, on Sunday, a disturbance will bring some clouds to South Alabama along with the chance of a sprinkle or two there, but for the rest of Alabama the sky will be partly sunny with a high not too far from 60 degrees.
NEXT WEEK: The tranquil pattern continues with sunny pleasant days and clear chilly nights. The high Monday will be in the upper 50s, followed by 60s each day for the rest of the week. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 2007: Lightning and heavy rain delay the start of the Monday Night Football game at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field between the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers by 25 minutes. The muddy field conditions contribute to one of the lowest scoring NFL games won by the Steelers, 3-0. The teams combined 375 yards, and the winning field goal occurred with 17 seconds left in the game.
