MOSTLY SUNNY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY… Tuesday may be the overall coolest day in the next week. Highs will only be around the 60 degree mark on Tuesday with many spots in the interior region of southwest Alabama (Thomasville, Monroeville, Greenville) likely only having highs in the mid- to upper-50s.
INCREASING CLOUDINESS & WARMER TEMPS ON THANKSGIVING DAY… Clouds will increase in coverage on Thanksgiving Day on Thursday ahead of an approaching cold front. Highs on Thanksgiving Day will be near the 70 degree mark in what will likely be the warmest day of the week.
FEW SHOWERS THANKSGIVING NIGHT INTO BLACK FRIDAY… Our next weather system slated to move across our region moves in late Thursday night (Thanksgiving Day) and into early Friday. This means a few showers may happen in the late evening hours of Thursday into the early part of Black Friday. Severe weather is not expected and rain amounts are generally expected to be light.
COOL, DRY PATTERN THIS WEEKEND… Mostly sunny and cool conditions are ahead for the upcoming weekend locally. Highs will be in the mid-60s with morning lows near 40.

Keep those jackets and gloves handy!
