Nice Weather Ahead… Wednesday Forecast Update – 5pm


Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out very nice this afternoon, as sunshine returned to the area. Temperatures have warmed into the middle 80s across west Alabama, while east Alabama is mostly in the 70s. Extra clouds and a few showers have kept areas near and east of I-65 a tad cooler. With lots of low level moisture in place this evening, expect fog to develop tonight and early Thursday morning. Fog could become pretty widespread, so use caution if you’re going to be driving tonight or early Thursday.

The weather is looking great during the day on Thursday, as fog quickly evaporates. Skies will remain sunny on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as a surface high moves into the area. The surface high will keep our area really quiet and dry. Highs will top out in the middle to upper 80s, with lows in the lower 60s. A few upper 50s are possible northeast of Fayette and Birmingham Thursday night through Sunday night.

Our next system to watch moves in late Sunday and on Monday. At this point, there’s not a very high risk of rain due to dry air in place. A few scattered showers or storms are possible late Sunday and on Monday. Your weekend plans should remain completely dry.

Football Friday is looking fantastic, with temperatures in the upper 70s at the 7pm kickoff and upper 60s to end the games around 10pm. Skies will remain clear through the entire high school football games around west and central Alabama.

Alabama takes on Ole Miss on Saturday, at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Look for a great gameday forecast, with a good supply of sun all day and clear skies that night. Temperatures will top out in the middle to upper 80s on Saturday, with temperatures falling into the upper 70s at gametime. Kickoff is at 5:30pm in Tuscaloosa… Look for temperatures in the lower 70s at the end of the game at Bryant-Denny.

The tropics are quiet at this time, and no development is expected over the next couple of days…
