Gradual Clearing Later Today

| November 9, 2017 @ 6:26 am

RADAR CHECK: Rain early this morning, just before daybreak, is mostly south of I-59.

This large rain mass will continue to push slowly southeast in coming hours, and we project a clearing sky from northwest to southeast during the midday hours as drier air returns to the state. Temperatures should reach the low 60s this afternoon, still below the average high of 68 for November 9.

Tomorrow will be sunny and cool; we begin the day around 40 degrees, followed by a high in the mid 60s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Saturday morning will be cold with a low in the 38-42 degree range. Colder pockets will most likely see some frost. Then, the day will feature sunshine in full supply with a high back in the mid 60s. Sunday looks mostly dry, although we will mention just the chance of a few isolated showers Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening as a cold front approaches. Moisture will be very limited, so rain, if any, will be light and spotty. Sunday’s high should be in the 62-65 degree range.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: For high school football playoff games tonight, the weather will be chilly. A clear sky with temperatures falling into the 40s during the games.

Auburn will host Georgia Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium (2:30p CT kickoff)… the sky will be sunny with a kickoff temperature near 66 degrees… falling to near 60 degrees by the final whistle.

Alabama travels to Starkville to take on Mississippi State Saturday (6:00p CT kickoff)… mostly fair with temperatures falling from near 61 at kickoff, into the 50s during game.

UAB is also on the road; they take on Texas-San Antonio (UTSA) Saturday evening (6:00p CT kickoff) in San Antonio… the sky will be mostly cloudy with showers possible; kickoff temperature near 72, falling into the 60s by the second half.

NEXT WEEK: The weather looks dry and pleasant much of the week with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. A front will pass through late Wednesday or Wednesday night, but for now it looks like any showers on the front will be few and far between with little moisture to work with. The GFS continues to suggest we could see our next decent chance of rain around Saturday November 18… see the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: Rina in the North Atlantic is becoming post-tropical, and the rest of the Atlantic basin is quiet.
