      Wednesday September 28, 2016
      Forecaster: James Spann

      PLEASANT DAYS, COOL NIGHTS: A refreshing, dry, continental airmass covers Alabama this morning; with sunshine in full supply we will rise from the 50s early this morning, into the mid 80s by afternoon.

      TOMORROW/FRIDAY: A secondary surge of cool air drops into the state. We project highs only in the mid 70s both days, with lows well down in the 50s. Sunny days, clear nights.

      THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The latest GFS model is printing a low of 52 degrees for Birmingham early Saturday morning; colder spots go down in the 40s. Then, the sky will stay sunny Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 70s Saturday, and close to 80 Sunday.

      FOOTBALL WEATHER: Looking fantastic for Friday night’s high school games; a clear sky with temperatures falling through the 60s during the games (remember, they were falling through the 80s this past Friday night). Some stadiums will see 50s by the fourth quarter, and a light jacket will be in order.

      Alabama will host Kentucky Saturday evening at Bryant-Denny Stadium (6:00p CT kickoff)… the sky will be clear with temperatures falling from 73 at kickoff, into the mid 60s by the fourth quarter.

      Auburn hosts Louisiana-Monroe Saturday at Jordan Hare Stadium (2:30p CT kickoff)… expect a sunny sky with a kickoff temperature of 76 degrees…falling into the upper 60s by the final whistle.

      NEXT WEEK: We stay dry with mostly sunny days and fair nights; highs in the 80s; lows around 60.

      AT THE BEACH: Just a few widely scattered storms around tonight and tomorrow, otherwise mostly sunny days and fair nights through the weekend from Gulf Shores to Panama City Beach. Highs in the 80s.

      TROPICS: Invest 97L will move into the Caribbean tomorrow, and is expected to become Tropical Storm Matthew by the end of the week. Most tropical models turn the system northward, with a movement between Cuba and Haiti up toward the Bahamas. But, remember this system doesn't even have a low level circulation now, and I would not trust any guidance until we get an organized cyclone for good initialization. There is a chance this becomes a significant hurricane, so it bears watching in coming days.
