TURNING COLDER: A deep upper low will drift just north of Alabama over the next 36 hours, and will bring a raw, winter-like day to the state tomorrow. We enjoyed some breaks in the overcast today, but clouds are increasing this afternoon as clouds around the upper low move into the state. The sky will be mostly cloudy tonight and tomorrow, with periods of light rain and drizzle. Temperatures will hover in the low 50s all day tomorrow over the northern half of the state, which is 20 degrees below average for late October. South Alabama could see some sun tomorrow with a high in the 60s.
HALLOWEEN WEEKEND: Clouds will linger over the northern half of the state Saturday, with some scattered light rain or drizzle… mainly in areas north and east of Birmingham. Temperatures won’t get out of the 50s where clouds hang tough, but South Alabama will see a high around 70 with a mostly sunny sky. Then, on Sunday, look for sunshine back in full force statewide with a high between 68 and 74.
NEXT WEEK: The week looks relatively quiet; the latest global model data suggests some rain possible late Wednesday or Wednesday night. Highs will be mostly in the 60s, and lows mostly in the 40s. But, we are seeing evidence we could drop down into the 30s around November 5-6. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
