GOLDEN DAYS OF FALL: If you take out the drought situation, the weather could not be better for Alabama this weekend. Sunny pleasant days, clear chilly nights. We drop well down into the 40s tomorrow and Sunday morning, and colder valleys should reach the 30s with potential for a touch of scattered light frost early Sunday. The high tomorrow will be in the upper 60s, followed by upper 70s Sunday. It will be hard to find a decent cloud in the sky over the weekend.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: For high school games tonight, the sky will be mostly clear, and temperatures will be cool, falling through the 50s. You will need a jacket this week.
Alabama will host Texas A&M tomorrow afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium (2:30p CT kickoff)… the sky will be sunny; 68 degrees at kickoff, falling into the upper 50s by the final whistle.
Auburn hosts Arkansas at Jordan-Hare Stadium tomorrow evening (5:00p CT kickoff)… the sky will be clear with temperatures falling from near 67 degrees at kickoff, into the upper 50s by the end of the game.
RACE WEEKEND AT TALLADEGA: Today will be breezy and much cooler with a sunny sky, and a high in the mid to upper 60s. Expect a bright sunny sky tomorrow and Sunday with fantastic temperatures; the high tomorrow will be close to 68, followed by a high of 75 Sunday. Temperatures will drop to near 40 degrees early tomorrow and Sunday morning at the Superspeedway.
NEXT WEEK: Sunny days, fair nights. We might consider a small risk of a shower Thursday with a wave passing north of the state, but drought conditions will worsen. Highs around 80; lows in the 50s.
Today is the 33rd consecutive day with no measurable rain in Birmingham. The record is 52 consecutive days with no rain, set in 1924. We see no really significant chance of rain for the rest of October, so there is a real chance we wind up with just a trace on the books for the entire month.
AT THE BEACH: Sunny days, fair nights on the coast through next week. Highs in the 70s tomorrow, and in the low 80s Sunday and through much of next week. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.
TROPICS: The disturbance northeast of the Bahamas remains disorganized, and the rest of the Atlantic basin is quiet.
