Wednesday Afternoon Forecast Update / Football Forecast – 4 PM Update

A good Wednesday afternoon to you! The cold front has finally cleared our area, with an increase in sunshine this afternoon. Big storms moved across our southern counties lastnight and very early this morning, but the complex of storms is moving off the coast at this hour. Many of us recovered into the lower 80s this afternoon due to a quick increase in sun. We had some fog lastnight and I think there could be some patch fog again tonight.

A secondary cold front will push all of the moist air out of the area on Friday and Saturday. After one more warm day on Thursday, look for highs to remain in the 70s over the weekend. This next front will bring some of the coolest air so far this season. Highs could fall into the lower 70s on Saturday and Sunday, with lows well into the 40s Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear of a few spots like Hamilton and Haleyville near 39 degrees by Sunday morning.

Temperatures will remain very nice through early next week. We’ll have a good supply of sun each day, with no chance of rain through Wednesday of next week. Lows will remain in the upper 40s to lower 50s through Wednesday morning.

Alabama Football on Saturday: Alabama plays Florida in Gainesville. Expect temperatures in the lower 70s at the 8pm Kickoff. Don’t forget its 8pm eastern time, or 7pm central time. Temperatures will fall into the middle 60s at the end of the game under a clear sky. The front that will bring us nice weather, will make it well down into Florida, so expect low humidity in Gainesville.

Auburn Football: Auburn plays South Carolina in Columbia on Saturday. Kickoff time is at 3:30 pm eastern or 2:30 central. Conditions will be great during the game with a good supply of sunshine. Temperatures will start in the lower 70s and fall into the upper 60s at the end of the game.

The West Alabama State Fair starts on Thursday. I hope you’ll join WVUA-TV at the event. I’ll be there between the 6 and 10pm news each weeknight. The forecast for the event is looking great through the weekend, with lots of sun and cool nights.
