FIRST ALERT UPDATE: A strong north wind will continue overnight as a blast of colder air impacts the area. This will be the coldest air of the season so far with lows near freezing tomorrow morning and highs only in the 40s through tomorrow afternoon. The sky will be sunny tomorrow but the cold north wind will keep feels-like temperatures in the 30° range through lunchtime. The coldest weather can be expected tomorrow night as temperatures tumble into the middle 20s. Take precautions to protect plants. This type of cold will be very harmful to sensitive plants and crops. Freeze warnings will be in effect between 9 PM Sunday and 9 AM Monday for our entire area.
DRY WEATHER THROUGH THANKSGIVING: We expect dry weather for several more days, including the big travel day on Wednesday and Thanksgiving. Another light freeze will impact the area Monday night but temperatures will slowly modify with highs back in the 60s and lows in the 40s by mid-week.
WEEKEND RAINMAKER/IRON BOWL FORECAST: Another cold front will impact the state Friday night into the day on Saturday. This system will bring a good chance of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms beginning late Friday night over West Alabama and this wet weather will move east through Saturday morning. The latest data suggests the rain will be tapering off over East Alabama in the afternoon but there could be some lingering drizzle as the Iron Bowl game kicks off at Auburn. It will be turning cooler with temperatures tumbling into the 50s.
