DRY, BUT COLDER: Look for a good supply of sunshine across Alabama today, but temperatures will be much colder than recent days. The high over North/Central Alabama today will be in the 50-55 degree range, and a freeze is likely early tomorrow morning. The NWS has issued a freeze warning for North and West Alabama; we project a low between 28 and 32 degrees for most places.
RADAR CHECK: Rain is fairly widespread across Alabama this afternoon ahead of a cold front near the Alabama/Tennessee border. The air has become unstable over far Southwest Alabama, and a brief tornado is possible with storms there over the next few hours. Otherwise, just rain with little if any thunder for the northern two-thirds of the state this evening.
COLD FRONT ON THE WAY: Clouds have returned to Alabama this morning, and we expect a few periods of rain this afternoon and early tonight ahead of a cold front. The main window for rain comes from 12:00 noon until 12:00 midnight, and rain amounts should be under 1/2 inch for most places as moisture will be limited. No risk of severe storms, and most likely very little thunder. The high this afternoon will be in the upper 60s.
ANOTHER NICE DAY: Temperatures are mostly in the 40s across Alabama early this morning, but some of the colder pockets are in the upper 30s. Look for a nice warm-up today; with a good supply of sunshine the high will be in the 72-75 degree range for most communities. The average high for November 6 at Birmingham is 69.
BEAUTIFUL AFTERNOON: We are enjoying a sunny, mild afternoon across Alabama today with temperatures generally in the 69-74 degree range. Not much change tomorrow; dry air means a good supply of sunshine with a mild afternoon… the high will be between 72 and 75 degrees. It will most likely be our warmest day out of the next ten.
COOL, DRY DAY: Temperatures are mostly in the 58-64 degree range over the northern half of the state, and the sky is generally cloudy (although there are some spots seeing sunshine). Clouds will linger over much of the state tonight, and a few sprinkles are possible over Southeast Alabama, but most places will stay dry.
Look for a mix of sun and clouds today with a high in the 60s; tonight will be mostly cloudy and not as cold as recent nights. A weak surface trough could squeeze out a few small showers over Southeast Alabama tonight or tomorrow morning, but most of the state will stay dry. Tomorrow will be partly sunny with a high close to 70 degrees.
**No afternoon Weather Xtreme video today** COBALT BLUE SKY: Not a cloud in the Alabama sky this afternoon as a very dry airmass remains in place. Temperatures are generally in the mid 50s; the average high at Birmingham on November 1 is 71. Tonight will be clear and cold; another freeze is likely for North […]
COLD FRONT INTO NORTHWEST ALABAMA: On the maps this morning we have a cold front over the northwest part of Alabama; behind the front temperatures are falling quickly through the 50s, but ahead of the front we have low 70s. The front will move steadily to the southeast this morning, and temperatures will fall a […]
TONIGHT: SPC maintains a low end, “marginal risk (level 1/5) of severe storms for all of Alabama tonight and early tomorrow morning as a cold front approaches. Severe weather parameters are not impressive; instability values are low, and lapse rates are weak. But, some of the storms along the front could produce gusty winds, and there is a small chance of a brief, isolated tornado. The window for heavier storms along the front will come from 2:00 until 8:00 a.m.
MORE BENEFICIAL RAIN AHEAD: Rain is falling this morning over Southeast Alabama… generally south of a line from Lafayette to Montgomery to Camden. The northern counties of the state are dry, but fog has formed in many areas, and a Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for North/Central Alabama. The fog will dissipate by mid-morning. Most of the rain will stay over South Alabama today; clouds will increase over the northern counties with a high in the low 70s.
