Good Monday afternoon! After a very cold start to the day, temperatures have warmed into the middle 50s this afternoon. Afternoon temperatures are about 8 to 12 degrees below average for this time of the year. Lows this morning ranged from 21 in Cullman to 26 in Tuscaloosa to 27 in Birmingham. Expect another cold night tonight, with temperatures generally near freezing. Some of the colder spots may reach the upper 20s tonight to the north of I-20. Expect a frost overnight, as winds remain calm and skies remain clear.

The modifying trend will begin on Tuesday, with a good dose of sunshine and warmer temperatures. We can expect highs in the lower 60s on Tuesday. Upper 30s to near 40 for lows Tuesday night, with no risk of widespread frost. Some of the colder spots could get a touch of light frost in northeast Alabama, but most areas will be too warm. Moisture levels will start to increase on Wednesday and Thanksgiving. I don’t expect rain, but you will notice a few clouds passing by on Wednesday, then becoming partly sunny on Thanksgiving. Highs will approach 70 on Thursday, so conditions will feel nice.

A weakening front will stall to the northwest of Alabama on Friday, with a few showers becoming possible northwest of I-59. Most areas should remain dry on Friday, with temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70. Showers will become more likely on Saturday, but I don’t expect an all day rain at this time. The higher rain chances will arrive Sunday and Monday. Expect a mostly cloudy weekend, as we’ll remain under a southwest flow aloft. Uplift and moisture available should keep skies mainly cloudy.

Alabama takes on Auburn in the Iron Bowl on Saturday in Auburn. Kickoff is at 2:30pm. Conditions should remain dry for the game, with temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70 at kickoff. Skies will remain mostly cloudy during the game. Since this is several days out, keep checking back with us for updates.
