Nice Now, Cooler Weather Ahead… Thursday Afternoon Forecast Update – 4:30pm
October 4, 2012 1 Comment
Good Thursday afternoon to you! How about another nice fall day, with ample sunshine and warm temperatures. After a chilly start to the day, we’ve warmed up a bit this afternoon. Most spots are in the 79 to 83 degree range. With a low level of humidity, it feels nice; especially in the shade. Skies will remain mostly clear tonight, with a temperature falling into the upper 60s after 7pm and upper 50s after 10pm. It will be another cool night, but there are no issues with rain expected. I wouldn’t be shocked if we get a little fog in spots tonight, so allow a little extra time driving late tonight or tomorrow morning.
Friday is expected to be another great weather day. Highs will get a tad warmer, with most spots reaching the 82 to 85 degree mark. Humidity will remain low, so it will be a mild and dry day. If you’re heading out to the local high school football games Friday night, the weather will be nearly perfect. Most spots will fall into the low to mid 70s at the 7pm kickoff and middle 60s at the 10pm final play. Skies will remain mostly clear through game-time.
Alabama doesn’t play football this weekend, but the big races are happening in Talladega this weekend. If you’re heading to the Talladega Superspeedway, Saturday is looking mild. Highs will reach the low 80s under a partly sunny sky. A passing, quick shower is possible, but the chance is very low. The stray shower will continue in the forecast through Sunday. We’ll hang onto a mostly cloudy to partly cloudy sky through Sunday. A strong cold front will bring major changes in the forecast for Saturday night and on Sunday. Look for a brisk north wind to develop Saturday evening and on Sunday. This will allow much cooler air to move in. Highs will top out in the middle 60s on Sunday and upper 60s on Monday. Lows will fall into the 39 to 43 degree range both Sunday night and Monday night.
We can expect ample sunshine on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. A gradual warming trend is expected on Tuesday and Wednesday, as highs return into the 70s. The weather will become very nice as we approach the middle of next week.
