| November 17, 2022 @ 11:33 am

We continue to deal with cold and dry weather across Alabama today. Many spots were in the 20s this morning, and we will see that again tonight. Highs this afternoon under a mainly sunny sky are in the mid and upper 40s. Tomorrow will feature more sun than clouds, and we should see highs in the low 50s.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: Expect clear and cold conditions for the high school playoff games Friday night with temperatures falling from the mid 40s at kickoff, into the upper 30s by the second half.

CHILLY WEEKEND: Look for sunny cool days and clear cold nights through the weekend. Highs mostly in the low 50s, lows will range from the mid 20s in the colder spots, to lower 30s elsewhere. Both highs and lows are well-below average for this time of year.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: Saturday, Alabama will host Austin Peay at Bryant-Denny Stadium (11:00a CT kickoff)… the sky will be sunny with temperatures rising from near 49° at kickoff into the mid 50s by the final whistle.

Auburn will host Western Kentucky at Jordan-Hare Stadium (3:00p CT kickoff)… it will be a sunny day; about 55° at kickoff, falling into the upper 40s by the four quarter.

Saturday night, UAB travels to Baton Rouge to take on LSU (8:00p CT kickoff)… expect a cloudy sky with temperatures hovering around 50° during the game. A few showers are possible during the day, but they should be over by game time.

THANKSGIVING WEEK: Dry weather continues Monday through Wednesday with a gradual warming trend. Temperatures reach the low 60s by Wednesday. The next chance of rain will come late in the week, sometime in the Thursday-Friday time frame. Model consistency has not been good concerning details of the system, which is to be expected 7-10 days out.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet in the Atlantic basin and no development is expected through the weekend. The season comes to an end at the end of the month.
