**No afternoon Weather Briefing video today; we are on a holiday schdeule**

DRY THROUGH TOMORROW MORNING: Rain has ended across Alabama this afternoon, and we are seeing some filtered sunshine over the northern counties of the state. Temperatures are mostly in the 60s…Mobile has reached the low 70s. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 45-52 degree range.

Clouds will increase across the state tomorrow, and a few isolated showers could form during the afternoon over the western half of the state. But, the better chance of comes tomorrow night. SPC has defined a “marginal risk” of severe thunderstorms for the southern quartet of Alabama tomorrow night…

Enough low-level shear should exist for some low-level updraft rotation and perhaps a tornado or two across far South Alabama tomorrow night. Isolated damaging winds may also occur as convection spreads eastward across the central Gulf Coast states. For North/Central Alabama, expect just a large area of rain with some thunder… no severe storms are expected for that part of the state. Rain amounts tomorrow night will be around one inch.

Then, on Sunday, rain ends very early in the day, and the sky becomes partly sunny with a high in the mid 60s. Sunday will be a windy day with gusty west winds of 15-25 mph.

NEXT WEEK: Monday will be dry with a high in the upper 60s. Clouds increase Tuesday, and rain and storms return to the state Tuesday night into part of the day Wednesday. This is a dynamic system, and some potential for strong to severe thunderstorms could evolve across Alabama, but it remains too early to be specific. SPC has defined a risk of severe storms west of Alabama during the day Tuesday.

Dry air returns Thursday and Friday with seasonal temperatures.

HIGH SCHOOL PLAYOFF GAMES: The weather will be dry for the high school football games across Alabama tonight. The sky will be mostly fair with temperatures generally in the 50s; some fog is possible.

IRON BOWL: It will be a mild day for the biggest football game of the year in Alabama tomorrow (Auburn at Alabama; 2:30p CT kickoff)… expect a temperature in the upper 60s at kickoff. A passing shower is possible during the game, but the most widespread rain won’t arrive in Tuscaloosa until after the completion of the game. Chance of a passing shower tomorrow afternoon is 20-25 percent. Temperatures fall into the low 60s by the final whistle, and rain becomes widespread across West Alabama by 9:00 tomorrow night.

We should note that tomorrow morning should be dry for the tailgaters.

ON THIS DATE IN 1950: Called the “storm of the century” this storm impacted the eastern part of the US, killing hundreds and causing millions of dollars in damages. New York City recorded a 94 mph wind gust and Bear Mountain, just north of the city recorded a 140 mph gust. Record low temperatures were reported on the southern end of this storm in Tennessee and North Carolina. This storm was unique as Pittsburgh saw 30 inches of snow, while Buffalo saw 50 degrees with 50 mph wind gusts.

The temperature at Birmingham would drop to 5 degrees on November 25, 1950, the coldest November temperature on record. Snow fell over the northern half of the state the day before, on November 24.

ON THIS DATE IN 1986: An EF3 tornado carved out a path of 44 miles through parts of Coffee, Dale and Barbour Counties in Southeast Alabama. The twister developed in the New Brockton area, then moving through Ariton, Elamville, Clio and then Clayton where the tornado dissipated. There were three injuries in New Brockton and one church, three homes and two other buildings were destroyed. Another church and 17 houses were damaged. Near Ariton, an injury occurred in a mobile home.
