We are seeing sunshine will be in full supply today across Alabama and it is a warmer day with afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 70s statewide. Tonight will remain clear and chilly with upper 40s and lower 50s.
SOME CHANGES: Tomorrow will be dry, but clouds will be increasing through the day, and we will bring in a chance of rain statewide tomorrow night ahead of a surface cold front. Moisture will be limited, and rain amounts will be light; generally under a half an inch. The high tomorrow will be in the low 70s. Highs fall back into the mid and upper 60s Friday and the sky will be clearing as the system moves through quicker than first thought.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: The sky will continue to clear with temperatures falling from near 65° at kickoff, into the upper 50s by the final whistle.
FANTASTIC FALL WEEKEND: Another surge of dry air rolls into the state Friday night, and the weekend will feature sunny pleasant days and clear cool nights. Highs will range from the upper 60s to lower 70s; lows mostly in the 40s. Picture perfect autumn weather across all of Alabama.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: 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° 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.
NEXT WEEK: A ridge will build across the Deep South, meaning dry weather is likely through the week with highs mostly in the 70s, and lows in the 40s and 50s. Our next rainmaker looks to arrive towards the end of next week and into the weekend, but that is still ten days away and timing of the system will change.
IN THE TROPICS: Still watching Invest 94L as it will likely become Tammy by the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low pressure located about 850 miles east of the Windward Islands continue to show signs of organization, however it is not yet clear if the system has a well-defined surface circulation. Environmental conditions are expected to remain conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or so while the system moves westward to west-northwestward across the western tropical Atlantic toward the Lesser Antilles. Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this system, and watches may be required for some of the islands later today. Additional information, including storm warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. Regardless of development, this system has the potential to bring gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and flooding to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning Friday. Formation chances…high…80 percent.
The remaining names on list this year are Tammy, Vince, and Whitney.
