The Weather Authority | Refreshing Weather Change For Alabama Today
ON THE MAPS: A cold front is nearing the U.S. 80 corridor early this morning, and a band of showers continues ahead of the front….
Temperatures are in the 40s and 50s behind the front, with 70s south of the front over the southern counties of the state. The surface front will push all the way through Alabama by this evening, setting up delightful week of weather.
The sky becomes mostly sunny today with a cool north wind of 12-22 mph; the high over North/Central Alabama will be in the 65-70 degree range. Tonight will be clear and cool with temperatures in the 40s by daybreak tomorrow.
TOMORROW THOUGH FRIDAY: Picture perfect fall weather continues with sunny pleasant days and clear cool nights. Highs mostly in the 70s, lows in the 40s and 50s. Doesn’t get any better.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Global model data suggests that while some rain will be possible west of the state, over parts of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, we will stay rain-free with a good supply of sunshine both days. Highs 77-80, lows 58-62. Partly sunny days, fair nights.
NEXT WEEK: Another cold front will likely move through early in the week with some potential for a few showers, followed by more cool air over the latter half of the week.
TROPICS: A disturbance east of the Bahamas has some chance of development in coming days, but the upper trough will push that feature out to sea; no threat to the U.S. And, “post tropical cyclone Ophelia” will move over Ireland today. The rest of the Atlantic basin is quiet. Hurricane season runs through the end of November.
