Cold Night Ahead; Rain Returns Sunday Night

| November 19, 2021 @ 3:03 pm

SEVERE CLEAR: We have a cloudless sky across all of Alabama this afternoon with temperatures mostly in the upper 50s and low 60s. Tonight will be clear and cold; we will drop into the 27-34 degree range early tomorrow morning with frost likely, and a freeze for colder spots.

Tomorrow will be a sunny day with a high in the mid 60s. Then, on Sunday, we reach the upper 60s with a partly sunny sky. Clouds increase late in the day, and rain will move into the state Sunday night ahead of a cold front. The main window for rain will come from 8:00 p.m. Sunday through 6:00 a.m. Monday… amounts should be 1/2 inch or less, and there is no risk of severe storms.

THANKSGIVING WEEK: Monday will be breezy and much colder… despite a clearing sky temperatures won’t get out of the 40s over the northern third of the state. And, by daybreak Tuesday, we expect the coldest readings so far this season with mid 20s likely for most communities. The weather will stay dry Tuesday through Friday with a slow warming trend.. the high Tuesday will be in the mid 50s, close to 60 Wednesday, and in the low 60s Thanksgiving Day. Temperatures reach the mid 60s Friday with a partly sunny sky.

Still too early to call the weather for Iron Bowl Saturday (November 27)… the American GFS model continues to show a cool, dry day, and the latest run of the European global model is trend drier for the day. We will have much better clarity by early next week. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1930: An estimated F4 tornado struck the town of Bethany, Oklahoma. Between 9:30 am and 9:58 am CST, it moved north-northeast from 3 miles west of the Oklahoma City limits, and hit the eastern part of Bethany. About 110 homes and 700 other buildings, or about a fourth of the town, were damaged or destroyed. Near the end of the damage path, 3.5 miles northeast of Wiley Post Airfield, the tornado hit the Camel Creek School. Buildings blew apart just as the students were falling to the floor and looking for shelter, and five students and a teacher were killed. A total of 23 people were killed.
