WEATHER AWARE: Early Thursday Morning Storms, Clearing Tonight


Thursday, a cold front moves into the state with even more rain coming. Again, some rumbles of thunder and maybe a strong storm or two are possible, but widespread storms and severe weather aren’t really likely. The big question is the timing of the rain and will it end in time for Halloween night. Right now, it looks like the heavier rain will exit by sunset, with just some lingering rain in the east, while temperatures nosedive in west Alabama. We’ll continue to monitor the trends and update the forecast. 

A FREEZE WATCH is in effect for much of our area. Temperatures could dip as low as 31 degrees in some spots.

Speaking of a big cool down, Friday and through the weekend, temperatures will be much cooler than average. Friday morning we’ll start in the 30s and 40s with afternoon highs in the 50s. Our first freezing temperatures and frost is possible on Saturday with similar temperatures for Sunday morning, too. Afternoon highs for the weekend will only rise to the upper 50s and near 60.
