The coldest air of the week and possibly the season(so far)arrives overnight Wednesday morning. Thanks to clear skies and a light northwest breeze, temperatures drop to or below freezing for most of North Alabama. Even a hard freeze will be possible for some areas Wednesday morning: mid to upper 20s.
North Alabama will continue to see a gradual warming trend through this upcoming weekend. By Thursday, highs reach the mid 60s then to the low 70s this weekend. The quiet pattern also continues through this weekend with mostly sunny skies each afternoon. Our next rain chance arrives very late Sunday night and Monday as a cold front looks to bring spotty showers to the area. Monday does not appear to be a washout, but long term data sources seem to suggest a more active and warmer than normal Thanksgiving week. Stay tuned for updates.
