Great Weather Ahead! Thursday Forecast Update – 5pm


Good Thursday afternoon! After a rather cloudy start to the day, our weather has turned out nearly perfect this afternoon. Most of Alabama is reporting temperatures in the lower 80s, due to the limited heating to start off the day. Skies will remain mostly clear tonight, with temperatures falling into the lower 60s. As the air over Alabama continues to dry out, you’ll notice big temperature differences between lows and highs. Dry air heats and cools very efficiently.

This evening, temperatures will fall into the upper 70s by 10pm and upper 60s at 10pm. Look for a clear sky overnight, with some patchy fog late tonight.

Friday through Sunday will feature really nice weather. Highs will top out in the middle to upper 80s, with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. There is no risk of rain through Sunday, as a surface high moves over the area.

Humid weather will gradually increase early next week, with the chance of a lone shower or storm each afternoon. Highs will continue in the lower to middle 80s early next week, with lows in the lower 60s.

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…
