It remains cloudy today with most of the rain staying east of Central Alabama. Sure there are a few showers, but as the surface low moves east, the rain will remain to the east. Temperatures today are ranging from the upper 60s to lower 70s. Tonight, some scattered showers will be possible, mainly east of Interstate 65, it will remain cloudy with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.
TOMORROW: Showers will remain possible statewide tomorrow and tomorrow night, but again the better chances for rain will be over eastern portions of the state. Rain amounts will be rather light and spotty, but just know there will be some showers on the radar at times. It will remain cloudy with highs in the 60s and 70s again.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: For the high school games tomorrow night, the sky will be mostly cloudy with just a small risk of a shower. Temperatures will fall from near 70° at kickoff to the mid 60s by the final whistle.
FANTASTIC FALL WEEKEND: The sky will clear during the day Saturday, with highs in the 70s. Saturday night, a cold front will swing through the state in dry fashion (no rain), bringing a cooler and drier air mass into the state. Sunday will be a cooler day with highs only in the 60s and sunshine in full supply. There will also be a cool north breeze of 10-20 mph.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: Saturday, Alabama hosts Arkansas at Bryant-Denny Stadium (11a CT kickoff). The sky will be partly too mostly sunny with temperatures rising from near 72 at kickoff, into the mid 70s by the fourth quarter.
Auburn will be in Baton Rouge to take on LSU (6:00p CT kickoff). The sky will be clear with temperatures falling from near 76 at kickoff, into the upper 60s by the final whistle.
UAB is also on the road… they will take on UTSA in San Antonio (7:00p CT kickoff). The Roadrunners play their home games at the Alamodome, so weather won’t be an issue. But for the fans headed that way Saturday will be a sunny day in San Antonio with a high in the mid 80s. It will be clear Saturday night with temperatures falling through the 70s after sunset.
SOLAR ECLIPSE SATURDAY: The annular solar eclipse (the path runs from parts of South Texas to Oregon) will be visible in Alabama as a partial eclipse. For Birmingham (and most of Alabama), it begins at 10:38a CT, peaks at 12:08p CT, and ends at 1:43p CT. At the peak 57.5 percent of the sun will be obscured by the moon. For now it looks like the sky will be mostly clear during the event here… be sure and use eclipse glasses from a reputable dealer! Never watch a solar eclipse with the naked eye or sunglasses.
NEXT WEEK: Most of the week looks dry with sunny pleasant days and clear cool nights; highs will be mostly in the 60s with lows in the 40s. With moderating temperatures into the 70s for the second half of the week. More fantastic fall weather for all of Alabama.
IN THE TROPICS: We have two features: In the far Eastern Tropical Atlantic, Sean has weakened into a Tropical Depression and will dissipate over the coming days without impacting any land. Behind Sean, Invest 94L is a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles to the south of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce some disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions could support some slow development of this system over the next several days while it moves generally westward across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic. Formation chance through 7 days…low…30 percent.
The remaining names on list this year are Tammy, Vince, and Whitney.
