Dry Through Much Of Next Week; Colder Air Arrives Tonight

| November 12, 2021 @ 5:39 am

FOGGY START: A dense fog advisory is in effect for that part of Alabama north of a line from Jackson to Prattville to Ranburne early this morning… visibilities are under 1/8 of a mile in many areas. The fog will dissipate by mid-morning, and we project a sunny day ahead with a high in the mid to upper 60s, very close to seasonal averages for mid-November.

Another cold front will pass through tonight in dry fashion, and the weekend will be noticeably colder. Despite a sunny sky tomorrow, temperatures won’t get past the low 50s over the northern third of Alabama. Sunday will be a sunny day with a morning freeze likely in most places… a freeze watch is in effect as far south as Jackson, Camden, Troy and Eufaula. The low Sunday morning will be in the 27-33 degree range for most communities, followed by a high in the upper 50s.

NEXT WEEK: Dry weather continues Monday through Thursday with highs mostly in the 60s and lows mostly in the 30s and 40s. A cold front could bring some light rain to North Alabama late Thursday or Thursday night, but models continue to trend drier. Still no sign of any severe weather threat for Alabama for the next 7 to 10 days… See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: The Atlantic basin is quiet, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the next five days. The season ends November 30.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: For the high school playoff games tonight, the sky will be clear with temperatures mostly in the 40s.
