Central Alabama's Most Detailed 7 Day Forecast

Friday, November 14, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

BRIGHTER, BUT STILL COLD: The weather stays dry and cold across the great state of Alabama today and tomorrow. Expect a good supply of sunshine both days; the high tomorrow will be only in the mid 40s. Then, tomorrow, we begin the day down in the mid 20s again, but the high will be closer to 50 degrees by afternoon. Clouds begin to return late tomorrow night.

RAIN RETURNS SUNDAY/MONDAY: Rain will begin at some point during the day Sunday; model consistency in the timing has not been very good; rain could begin during the morning Sunday over West Alabama, but the most widespread rain will come by mid to late afternoon into Sunday night. A surface low will form over South Alabama, and should bring rain totals of at least 1/2 to 1 inch for the north-central part of the state, with potential for over one inch of rain over the southern counties.

Sunday’s temperatures will depend on when the rain starts; if it begins early in the day, we won’t get out of the 40s. If the rain holds off until afternoon, we could creep up into the low to mid 50s.

MONDAY: The rain will end from west to east during the day Monday as another surge of colder air begins to arrive. The high resolution GFS model still hints at some chance of a few snow flakes over North Alabama as the system winds down.

Even if this happens we don’t expect any significant impact, but of course we will keep a close eye on model trends over the next few days. Temperatures could very well fall into the 30s Monday afternoon after the rain moves out.

REST OF NEXT WEEK: Very cold air arrives Monday night, and we don’t expect to get out of the 30s Tuesday with an icy north breeze. The coldest morning should come early Wednesday, with average lows between 18 and 23 degrees. Then, a slow day to day warming trend begins Wednesday afternoon. And, we should mention that the GFS shows another rain event at the end of the week. See the Weather Xtreme video for the maps, graphics, and more details.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: For the high school playoff games tonight, we project a kickoff temperature around 38 degrees, then falling through the 30s during the games. Needless to say, you will need to bundle up. The sky will be clear.

The biggest college game in the country will be in tomorrow Saturday as Mississippi State comes to town to take on Alabama. If you are planning on being with the ESPN GameDay crew, early morning temperatures will be in the mid 20s around daybreak, rising through the 30s, and reaching the 40s by late morning. The kickoff temperature (2:30p CT) will be close to 51 degrees with a mostly sunny sky, but as the sun goes down temperatures will drop quickly into the 40s during the second half.

Auburn will be over in Athens, GA to take on the Georgia Bulldogs tomorrow evening (6:15p CT kickoff)… expect 46 degrees at kickoff, with temperatures dropping slowly through the 40s during the game. The sky should be mostly fair.

LOOK BACK AT SNOWJAM 2014: The January 28th Winter Storm earlier this year will be legendary for decades across Central Alabama. Keith Stellman, the Meteorologist in Charge at the National Weather Service Atlanta will talk about the event’s impact and meteorology at the Central Alabama National Weather Association Meeting this coming Monday, November 17th. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in room F at the Medical Forum Building in the BJCC Downtown. The meeting is free to NWA Chapter members, visitors are $10 Go here to get more information.
