Cloudy, Cool Day With Some Rain At Times

| October 16, 2018 @ 5:54 am

COOL CHANGE: A cold front this morning is near Montgomery; north of the front cooler air continues to seep into the northern half of Alabama. And, a southwest flow aloft overhead will keep clouds over the state today along with some rain at times. Rain amounts won’t be especially heavy… most places will see under a quarter of an inch. And, temperatures will rise little during the day. Those of you in the Tennessee Valley will have a hard time getting out of the 50s, while places like Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Anniston, and Gadsden will remain in the 60s.
