Fall Begins Wednesday and Temperatures Tumble | Central AL Forecast


Big changes happening tomorrow, as a cold front moves in and brings us some of the coolest air of the season.

We will have overnight showers as this front moves across the state. A line of showers will move through west Alabama shortly after midnight, with that same line of showers moving across east Alabama around sunrise. There will pockets of heavy rain, but none should last too long. This will not be a flooding or severe weather event.

Temperatures will drop pretty quickly behind this front too. Not only will the air dry out, temperatures fall, but the winds will be breezy. Expect a much cooler north wind by Wednesday afternoon along with a quickly clearing sky.

The first full day of fall is Thursday, and it will really feel like it! An area of high pressure will build over the Southeast U.S. It will be sunny and cooler with low humidity. High temperatures will only be in the lower 70s. Average high temperatures are in the mid 80s, so this will be well below average. Thursday night will be clear and sort of chilly. Lows will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s. How about that for late September!

Friday will remain sunny, dry, and pleasant with below average temperatures. High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 70s.

Weekend Outlook: The delightful and dry weather with low humidity will continue all weekend as the area of high pressure sits over the Southeast U.S. Saturday and Sunday will be sunny and become a little warmer. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s. This is perfect weather for football or anything outside.
