With sunshine in full supply, the high today will be in the 57-62 degree range over the northern half of Alabama, with low to mid 60s for the southern counties. Tonight won’t be as cold as last night, but colder pockets will see another freeze early tomorrow morning.
TOMORROW THROUGH SUNDAY: A warming trend headlines the forecast. With sunny days and fair nights, we expect a high in the 60s tomorrow, followed by 70s over the weekend.
NEXT WEEK: Unfortunately the chance of rain looks very low through the week as drought conditions will continue to intensify across Alabama and the Deep South. We now have a dry forecast with highs in the 75-80 degree range through Wednesday, followed by a cooling trend Thursday and Friday. We continue to see signals of a decent rain event for the state by 10-15 days… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: Expect a clear sky for the high school games across Alabama tomorrow night with temperatures falling through the 50s.
Saturday, UAB hosts Florida Atlantic at Protective Stadium in downtown Birmingham (2:00p CT kickoff). The sky will be sunny with temperatures in the low 70s.
Auburn travels to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt (3:00p CT kickoff)… the sky will be clear with upper 60s at kickoff, dropping into the low 60s by the final whistle.
And, Alabama will host LSU Saturday evening at Bryant-Denny Stadium (6:45p CT kickoff)… the sky will be clear with temperatures falling through the 60s. A perfect night for football in Tuscaloosa.
TROPICS: A trough of low pressure (Invest 97L) is producing limited shower and thunderstorm activity while moving westward over the central Caribbean Sea. Environmental conditions could become a little more conducive for some development of this disturbance over the next couple of days before it moves inland over Central America by this weekend. Regardless of development, this system has the potential to produce heavy rains over portions of Central America late this week and into the weekend. The chance of development has dropped to 30 percent.
ON THIS DATE IN 1992: Another infamous November Great Lakes storm brought windy conditions to Minnesota’s Lake Superior shoreline. 70 mph winds caused waves to crash over 130-foot walls along the shore.
