Dry Through The Weekend With Very Mild Afternoons

| December 1, 2021 @ 3:06 pm

MILD DECEMBER WEATHER: Temperatures are generally in the 67-72 degree range across Alabama this afternoon with a good supply of sunshine. Scattered clouds over North Alabama are in association with an “Alberta clipper” wave that is moving through Tennessee and Kentucky. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 40s and low 50s.

Alabama’s weather will stay dry through the weekend with mostly sunny days and fair nights. Afternoon highs will be in the 71-75 degree range, which is almost 15 degrees above average for early December. A few scattered clouds will show up Saturday and Sunday as moisture levels tick up a bit, but no rain is expected.

NEXT WEEK: A cold front will bring rain, and maybe a thunderstorm or two, to Alabama late Sunday night into Monday morning. Model data suggests the main threat of rain will come from about midnight Sunday night to 12 noon Monday, and rain amounts will be around 1/2 inch. Some clearing is possible by Monday afternoon, and the day will be cooler with a high in the mid 50s.

There will be multiple chances for more rain through next week… the latest data suggests the next round of showers will come Tuesday night into Wednesday. Thunderstorms are possible, but for now the risk of severe storms looks low. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: Saturday’s SEC Championship game between Alabama and Georgia will be played in Mercedes Stadium in Atlanta (3p CT kickoff). The day in Atlanta will be dry and mild… with a partly sunny sky temperatures will reach 70 degrees by mid-afternoon.
