Midday Nowcast: Sunny Day, and a Frost Advisory Tonight

| November 19, 2021 @ 11:42 am

A much cooler air mass has settled into the state and our Friday is featuring tons of sunshine with highs struggling to make it out of the 50s this afternoon.

It is breezy as well, as northeasterly winds of 10-20 mph are making it feel cooler. Tonight will be clear and cold, expect areas of frost tomorrow morning as lows range from the lower 20s to upper 30s across Central Alabama. All the counties shaded in blue are included in a frost advisory that has been issued for much of Central Alabama until 8AM tomorrow.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: For the high school playoff games tonight, the sky will be clear with temperatures falling through the 40s, possibly reaching the upper 30s by the final whistle. Jackets and hot chocolate are a must tonight.

WEEKEND WEATHER: Tomorrow will be another day featuring sunshine in full supply with highs in the low to mid 60s. The day Sunday will remain dry, but clouds increase through the day and showers will return to the state Sunday evening, and these will continue across the area Sunday night as our next front moves through the state. Before the rain arrives, highs Sunday will be in the upper 60s.
