CLOUDS OVER SOUTHEAST ALABAMA: Visible satellite images this afternoon show clouds lingering over parts of East and South Alabama… generally east of a line from Auburn to Troy to Brewton. Auburn is reporting only 52 degrees at mid-afternoon with a low overcast, but to the west, where the sun is shining, places like Birmingham and Tuscaloosa are in the low 60s.
TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: Fine fall weather… sunny cool days and clear cold nights. Highs will be in the mid 60s, with lows in the 30s and low 40s. Dry air means no rain.
THANKSGIVING WEEK: Sure looks like we stay dry all the way through “Black Friday”. Next week looks dry with seasonal temperatures; highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. The 12Z GFS suggests a few showers could return over the following weekend (11/24-25), but nothing really widespread or heavy. See the Weather Xtreme video for a detailed look at the week and travel weather.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: Looks great for the high school playoff games tomorrow night; the sky will be clear with temperatures falling from near 52 at kickoff into the 40s by the second quarter.
Alabama will host Western Carolina Saturday morning at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa (11:21 a.m. kickoff)… the sky will be mostly sunny, with temperatures rising from near 60 at kickoff to 64 at the final snap. Auburn hosts Alabama A&M at 1:00 Saturday afternoon… there will be a good supply of sunshine during the game; the kickoff temperature will be near 63 degrees, falling into the 50s by the fourth quarter as the sun goes low on the horizon.
Very similar weather for the UAB/Memphis game Saturday afternoon at Legion Field (1:00 kickoff); lots of sunshine with a kickoff temperature near 64 degrees, but falling into the 50s late in the game as darkness nears.
