Look for sunny cool days and clear cold nights through the weekend. The high today will be in the 46-52 degree range… then expect lows 50s tomorrow and over the weekend. Lows will remain below freezing for most of the state each morning through Monday; mostly between 26 and 32 degrees. These values are a good 10-15 degrees below average for mid to late November in Alabama.
NEXT WEEK: Dry weather continues Monday through Wednesday with a slow warming trend… temperatures reach the low 60s by Wednesday. The next chance of rain will come late in the week, sometime in the Thursday-Friday time frame. Model consistency has not been good concerning details of the system, which is to be expected 7-10 days out. The latest global global model runs have backed off on the idea of the risk of strong/severe storms… See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.
