A CLOUDY AFTERNOON: The rain threat has ended but we will continue to deal with lots of clouds throughout the remainder of the day. The clouds will also keep high temperatures in the lower 70s. If you’re attending the game in Tuscaloosa I would grab a long sleeve pullover for later this evening. The clouds are expected to thin out tonight, with temperatures tumbling into the low 60s and 50s by 10 PM. There could be some foggy weather after midnight, with lows near 54°.
BIG TEMPERATURE CHANGE AHEAD: High temperatures will be back in the 80s for the next two days thanks to a better supply of sunshine. However, the unseasonably warm weather won’t last long. Another cold front will move through the state late Monday night dropping high temperatures into the 70s. We will be grabbing the jackets early Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures tumble into the mid 40s! The only rain threat this will week will come with the frontal passage late Monday night and early Tuesday. Right now this does not look like a major rainmaker, with only a few isolated showers or sprinkles expected.
ANOTHER SURGE OF COOLER AIR LATE WEEK: We will be tracking a secondary cold front later next week and this front will likely bring a reinforcing shot of colder weather late Friday night. Some data suggests we could see low 40s next weekend! Check out our expected temperature forecast on the FREE WBRC Weather App. You can download our app by searching WBRC in your app store.
VIEWING THE PLANETS: If you are up before sunrise tomorrow morning there will be a unique opportunity to view multiple planets. Look to the east around 5:38 a.m. and see from horizon and up the crescent moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus.
