NICE MONDAY; RAIN & STORMS ON WEDNESDAY… Mostly sunny skies are expected this morning into the early afternoon hours before clouds begin to move in later today. We’re looking ahead to Wednesday when our next chance of showers and thunderstorms is set to happen.
WARMER & MORE CLOUDS ON TUESDAY… You’ll notice more clouds in the sky on Tuesday ahead of showers becoming possible late in the day into the late evening hours. While most of the rain is set to happen on Wednesday, I can’t rule out a few showers (especially over west Alabama) on Tuesday night. High temps on Tuesday will surge into the mid-70s.
RAIN & STORMS LIKELY WEDNESDAY… Showers and thunderstorms will become likely on Wednesday as a frontal boundary slides through our region. This is a cold front, however it’s not a front that will usher in cooler temperatures. Temps following the frontal passage (or lack thereof considering the front will probably stall near the coast!) won’t be much cooler at all. There could be a few strong storms around Wednesday afternoon under some scenarios, but we note that MOST model guidance points to rain and general thunderstorms. We’ll keep watching this potential and bring you the latest over the next few days in the RedZone Weather app.
NICE, MILD THANKSGIVING DAY… Mostly sunny skies are likely for Thanksgiving Day. High temperatures will be in the low-70s, which is ever so slightly above our climatological norm for Thanksgiving. Quiet weather is expected Thanksgiving into Black Friday.
WARM TEMPS FOR BLACK FRIDAY… Highs will surge into the mid- to upper-70s for Black Friday. If you’re headed out early Friday morning for shopping, we’re looking at temperatures in the 50s across the region. No rain issues are expected on Friday.
IRON BOWL FORECAST… The Alabama Crimson Tide travels to Auburn to take on the Auburn Tigers this Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The Iron Bowl is set for a 2:30PM CST kickoff. The game will be televised on CBS. Temperatures will be near 70° at kickoff and won’t move much even after sunset in Auburn. There is a low rain chance (20%) but most model scenarios keep rain off to the eat of Auburn until after 7PM. We’ll keep watching this and bring you the latest this week.
WARM SATURDAY, RAIN ON SUNDAY… There is a high chance that temperatures might make a run at 80 degrees Saturday afternoon across south Alabama and northwest Florida. Rain will increase across the region from west to east Saturday night. Most scenarios point to rain for Sunday morning across the area. It is too early to know if severe weather will be a possibility.
LAST ADVISORY ISSUED ON TROPICAL STORM SEBASTIEN… The National Hurricane Center issued the last advisory on Tropical Storm Sebastien, likely bringing to an effective close an active 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season. While the season technically ends on Saturday, there are no more areas of concern expected to develop. Any time a hurricane season features 18 named storms, that’s an ACTIVE season to say the least. The 2019 season also featured TWO category 5 hurricanes: Dorian and Lorenzo. Dorian caused 63 direct fatalities with $8.28 billion dollars worth of damage.
