ANOTHER WARM DAY: It remains sunny, warm, and very dry across Alabama today. Temperatures this afternoon are ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s.
TOMORROW/FRIDAY: The day tomorrow looks dry, but clouds will be increasing ahead of a cold front, which will bring periods of rain at times tomorrow night and Friday. Not a big time rain event, but amounts of around 1/2 inch are possible across North/Central Alabama. We need a lot more, but this should at least settle the dust across Alabama. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 70s, but cooler air drops into Alabama with highs in the 60s on Friday.
COOL AND CLOUDY WEEKEND: The front will stall across the state this weekend, and it will keep the weather mainly cloudy, with the chance of scattered showers both days. The weather will be cooler with highs in the 50s and 60s. It won’t rain all weekend, but just know that showers will be possible at anytime, and an additional 1/2 of rain will be possible these two days across Alabama.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: Periods of light rain are possible for the high school playoff games across the state Friday night with temperatures in the low 60s.
Saturday, Alabama travels to Lexington to take on Kentucky (11a CT kickoff). The sky will be mostly sunny with temperatures rising from near 52 at kickoff, to around 56 degrees by the final whistle.
UAB is also on the road; they will be in Annapolis MD play Navy (2:30p CT kickoff). It will be a great day for football; the sky will be sunny with temperatures falling from the mid 50s at kickoff, into the upper 40s by the fourth quarter.
Auburn will be in Fayetteville as they take on Arkansas (3:00p CT kickoff). The sky will be partly too mostly sunny with temperatures falling from the low 60s at kickoff, into the 50s by the fourth quarter.
NEXT WEEK: For now, not much change for the first half of next week with generally dry weather with seasonal temperatures; highs mostly in the 60s, and lows in the 40s. By midweek, some model suggest we could see increasing rain chances, but that remains a week away.
IN THE TROPICS: The Atlantic Basin is quiet with no tropical cyclone development through the weekend. Hurricane season ends November 30th and the remaining names on list this year are Vince and Whitney.
