Rain Ends This Morning; Clouds Linger

| November 4, 2021 @ 5:35 am

RADAR CHECK: We have a large area of light rain across much of Central Alabama early this morning, but it will end over the next couple of hours. Clouds will linger, and the high today will be in the mid 50s, about 10-15 degrees below average for early November in Alabama. Clearing begins late tonight over the northwest corner of the state and parts of the Tennessee Valley, and that could result in some spots there seeing lows in the mid 30s early tomorrow with frost. Otherwise, tonight will be mostly cloudy with lows in the 40-44 degree range.

TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: The sky will clear statewide during the day tomorrow; temperatures reach the mid 60s by afternoon. Then, for the weekend, look for sunny pleasant days and fair cold nights. Highs will be in the mid 60s Saturday, followed by upper 60s Sunday. Morning lows will be mostly in the 38-43 degree range, with some frost possible for colder spots over the northern half of the state.

NEXT WEEK: The weather stays dry Monday through Thursday with highs in the low 70s in most places. Rain returns at the end of the week on Friday (November 12), followed by a shot of colder air for the following weekend. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
