Midday Nowcast: Clouds Linger the Rest of Today

| November 4, 2021 @ 11:13 am

Most of the rain has moved out of the area as we approach the midday hours. Clouds will linger the rest of today and temperatures will hold in the low to mid 50s for most locations, which remain well-below average for this time of year.

We do note, the sky is clear across the far northwest corner of Alabama. Tonight, the clouds will remain and lows should be in the low to mid 40s.

FRIDAY: Tomorrow starts off cloudy for most of us, but through the day, drier air will return to the area, allowing for a gradually clearing sky from northwest to southeast across the state. By late in the day, most of us will be seeing a clear sky. Temperatures will remain cool, but should at least return to the low 60s on Friday.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: For the high school playoff games tomorrow 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, and some frost is expected, especially across North Alabama this weekend.

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Wanda, with sustained winds of 45 mph, will continue to meander over the North Atlantic far from land this week. The rest of the Atlantic basin is very quiet.
