A cold front has brought us lots of clouds today and we’ve actually had some rain to brag about. Our rain total at the Tuscaloosa Airport was 0.08”, which sure helped to settle the dust. Now we will shift back into the dry weather mode, with sunshine expected over the next seven days. Look for the sky to gradually clear overnight, with a northerly wind developing. Lows will be in the 60s, with highs tomorrow climbing into the 80s.
In the short term we really won’t wont have a major shift in temperatures, with highs through Thursday staying in the 80s, and lows at night in the 50s. We will however, have some more noteworthy changes starting around Friday as another surge of cool air drops in. This will be in response to an upper air storm digging into the northeastern U.S. Look for highs to be in the 70s for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with lows at night in the chilly 40s.
By Monday we will start another warming trend however, another cold front will be getting geared up to move into the state around the mid portion of next week. This should keep our temperatures from getting too out of hand next week. Unfortunately, no rain is expected in the days ahead, making October live up to its name as the driest month on average. We will have much more for you on the news tonight at five, six, and ten.
