FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Unseasonably warm temperatures ahead of cold front

(WAFF) - Temperatures will be abnormally warm once again Thursday morning, with most of us starting the day in the mid-to-upper 60s, which is about 20° above average for early November.

Skies will be cloudy and there could be a few areas of drizzle as well as some patchy fog. Skies will stay cloudy through much of the morning, but some sunshine is possible heading into the afternoon. Highs should top out around 80 with a south wind at 5-10 mph.

A line of strong storms will develop to our west this afternoon into Friday evening. These storms will track east overnight, but should weaken as they near the Valley. Scattered showers could hold together and make it into the Shoals by Friday morning. Temperatures won't cool off much overnight, and lows should stay in the upper 60s.

Skies will be mostly cloudy Friday as scattered showers and storms develop for the afternoon.  Rain becomes more widespread through the evening with the heaviest rain falling overnight into Saturday. Some stronger storms with gusty winds are possible, but the overall threat for severe weather in the Valley is relatively low with this system.

Steady rain showers will be ongoing for the first half of Saturday, but should taper off during the late afternoon. The rain may hang on a bit longer in Tuscaloosa, so those of you heading to the Alabama-LSU game may want to think about taking the rain gear.
