We began the morning under fair skies with some high clouds moving into our area from the west. This was the warmest start to our day in weeks as east southeast winds continue to bring us warm air. Look for clouds to increase through late this afternoon with temperatures warming into the upper 60s by early afternoon and climbing into the low to mid-70s for daytime highs.
A slow moving wet weather system continues to push this way out of the west.
We still look like we will continue to be dry through Saturday.
On Sunday, more specifically Sunday evening we could begin to see some light showers move in to north and northwest Alabama.
This is a system that weakens considerably as it moves closer to us and eventually stalls.
The best chances of rain still appear to be Monday into Tuesday of next week.
This initial wave of moisture looks to push east of us by Wednesday, but we should continue to see mostly cloudy skies through mid-week.
A secondary push of moisture now looks like it will be moving through our area during the day and evening hours of Thursday.
Friday through next weekend appear to be dry.
Your Iron Bowl forecast look like a mild one temperature wise with temps starting out in the low 70s and cooling into the low 60s by the end of the 4th quarter.
We will likely see mostly cloudy skies at Jordan-Hare stadium, but we are still not expecting any rainfall for the big matchup.
