COOL BREEZES CONTINUE: The clouds are finally leaving this part of Alabama this morning; temperatures early this morning are generally in the 38-45 degree range. Look for a partly to mostly sunny sky today with a high around the 60 degree mark, almost 15 degrees below average for late October in Alabama.
FROST ADVISORY: Tonight will be colder than last night. With a clear sky and light wind, we expect lows tomorrow morning to range from near 30 for the colder valleys to 40 on the ridge tops. Most places should wind up in the mid 30s with a good chance of frost. The day tomorrow will feature maximum available sunshine with a high in the mid 60s.
SUNNY WEEKEND: No change in our weekend forecast. Simply delightful, with sunny days and clear nights along with a slow warming trend. We reach the upper 60s Saturday, followed by low 70s Sunday.
RACE WEEKEND: Picture perfect weather for NASCAR fans; tons of sun for Talladega this weekend. The high Saturday will be close to 67, followed by 71 Sunday. The humidity will be low, and winds will be light. Take the sunscreen.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: For high school games across the state tonight and tomorrow night, you will need a jacket for sure. The sky will be clear both nights, with temperatures falling through the 50s. Some stadiums will be in the 40s by the second half tonight.
Tonight UAB hosts UCF at 6:00 p.m. at Legion Field; the sky will be clear at kickoff with the temperature near 56 degrees, falling into the 40s by the end of the game.
Saturday, Alabama hosts the Tennessee Volunteers at Bryant-Denny Stadium with a 6:15 p.m. CDT kickoff. The sky will be clear, with temperatures falling from near 67 at kickoff into the mid 50s by the fourth quarter. Auburn is on the road; the Tigers will take on LSU in Baton Rouge at 2:30 p.m. CDT. The sky will be bright and sunny with 75 degrees at kickoff, then falling into the 60s by the final whistle.
NEXT WEEK: We stay dry early in the week, but another deep upper trough is forecast to form over the eastern U.S. during the latter half of the week, meaning a strong cold front moving through with a chance of showers or storms late Wednesday or Wednesday night, followed by another surge of cold air by Thursday and Friday. See the Weather Xtreme video for details.
