Midday Nowcast: More Like Winter Out There

| November 3, 2021 @ 11:12 am

Clouds have returned to Alabama today due to a low pressure to our southwest and an upper-level above us. It is also allowing for areas of light rain to move into the state today, and these will be lasting overnight and through the day tomorrow. Rain amounts will be very light, generally under one tenth of an inch, and some places won’t get enough rain to measure.

It is noticeably colder today with afternoon highs in the 40s and 50s across North and Central Alabama. There is a bit more sunshine in South Alabama today, and 60s are more common down that way. The weather will not change much tomorrow with clouds, a few spotty showers, and well-below average temperatures.

FRIDAY: Friday looks to start off cloudy, but through the day, drier air should return to the area, allowing for a gradually clearing sky from northwest to southeast across the state. Temperatures will remain cool, but should at least return to the low 60s on Friday.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: For the high school games Friday night, the sky will be clear with temperatures falling into the 40s.

WEEKEND WEATHER: For Saturday and Sunday, expect sunny cool days, and clear cold nights. Highs Saturday will be in the low to mid 60s while upper 60s should return Sunday. Lows will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s over the weekend.

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Wanda, with sustained winds of 50 mph, will continue to meander over the North Atlantic far from land this week. The rest of the Atlantic basin is very quiet.
