BREAKING NEWS Gov. Ivey extends Alabama’s health order, mandatory masking to Nov. 8 Full Story

Sunny and pleasant through mid-week

The WTVA Severe Weather Authority has a summary of what you can expect in the coming days.

Sunny and pleasant through mid-week

We will begin our Wednesday will clear skies and chilly temperatures across the area. Most areas will be in the upper 40s with a few spots in the lower 50s. A light fleece or sweater would be necessary at first. But with abundant sunshine throughout the morning and winds shifting out of the south, temperatures will rapidly warm up. By midday, most areas will return to the lower 70s. 

Sunshine will remain dominant through the afternoon, warming temperatures even more. Afternoon high temperatures should reach into the mid and upper 70s in most areas. Some may even push 80 degrees, though most will fall just short of that. Into the night, we remain clear. This should allow temperatures to drop quite a bit, though not quite as cold as this morning. Most will only drop into the mid-50s. 

Thursday will bring even more sunshine. But as a reinforcing shot of cool, dry air moves into the region; temperatures may be just a bit cooler than today. Highs should reach into the mid-70s in most areas. A few high, thin clouds will be possible into the night as this front continues sliding through. This will drop temperatures even more into Friday morning, perhaps into the mid-40s. Then on Friday, expect more sunshine with a northwest wind keeping temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70. 

Saturday morning will be clear and chilly again with most areas starting out in the mid and upper 40s. Then by the afternoon, temperatures warm up a bit more with sunshine. Most areas will reach into the lower 70s again. Then a few more clouds build into the area later in the day as a weak disturbance moves into the area. This could bring a few isolated showers into Sunday morning. But still, there will be some sunshine at times. This will get temperatures into the lower 70s again. 

We will continue our warm up gradually into early next week. Still, there will be some chilly temperatures to start our Monday and Tuesday. Most areas will begin in the upper 40s to lower 50s Monday morning. Highs in the afternoon return to the mid-70s. Then Tuesday morning, we begin in the lower to mid-50s with highs returning to the lower 80s in the afternoon. We should remain dry with mostly sunny skies. 

Meanwhile, we continue to monitor an area of possible tropical development in the Caribbean Sea. Still, models do not suggest any impacts here at home out of this system. But with several days of new data needed to make that determination, we cannot rule it out beyond the next several days. So stay tuned for updates as hurricane season is not over just yet.
