Central Alabama's Most Detailed 7 Day Forecast

Thursday, October 30, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

BLUE SKY: We expect a very nice autumn day across the great state of Alabama today with ample sunshine and a high in the upper 60s. Visibility will be excellent, and humidity levels will be low.

TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: The coldest air so far this season will drop into the Deep South. North winds will pick up late tomorrow afternoon and Friday night, gusting to 25 mph at times. Temperatures will plunge quickly tomorrow night, and we project a low between 30 and 35 degrees at daybreak Saturday. The last time we had a freeze in Birmingham was on April 16, when the low was 32.

Clouds will invade the northeast part of Alabama tomorrow night, and a sprinkle or two is not out of the question as the cold air rushes into the state.

Saturday and Sunday will be cool, but dry with a mostly sunny sky both days. The high Saturday will be only in the low 50s, and some communities north of Birmingham won’t get out of the 40s with a cool north wind of 10-20 mph.

Sunday morning will feature another freeze in many places, with a low between 28 and 34. Widespread frost is likely early Sunday with a clear sky and light wind. The high Sunday will be in the upper 50s.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: For tomorrow night’s high school games, it will be windy and sharply colder with temperatures falling through the 40s. North winds will gust to 25 mph at times, making it feel colder. A few sprinkles are possible over Northeast Alabama.

Auburn will be on the road; they play at Ole Miss in Oxford Saturday evening (kickoff 6p CT). The sky will be clear, temperatures will fall from 48 degrees at kickoff down to near 40 degrees by the fourth quarter. A perfect chilly, crisp night for football.

UAB is also on the road; they play at Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton, FL Saturday evening (5p CT kickoff). Again, a clear sky is likely with temperatures falling from near 80 at kickoff to the mid 70s by the fourth quarter.

NEXT WEEK: Expect a slow warming trend, and some rain is possible by mid-week, but model guidance is keeping the heavier and most widespread rain west of Alabama.

TROPICS: A disturbance just northeast of the Leeward Islands could develop slowly in coming days, but it is moving north, and will not impact the U.S.

GULF COAST WEATHER: A cool weekend is ahed from Panama City over to Gulf Shores… expect sunny days and clear nights through the weekend. It will be sharply colder on the coast Saturday and Sunday with highs around 60, and lows in the upper 40s.
