A back door cold front is moving across the state of Georgia this evening. It will move into eastern Alabama after 10 p.m. This front will continue to push west through the night. We will wake up with temperatures in the middle 60s. Afternoon highs will fall back into the middle and upper 80s for most areas on Thursday. There could still be a few lower 90s over extreme west Alabama Thursday afternoon.
The humidity will be lower tomorrow and wind gusts 15-20 mph will create a higher fire danger for the morning hours. The highest risk for fire will be in the driest areas of northeast Alabama. All outdoor burning should be avoided with the gusty winds.
Temperatures will begin to drop into the middle and upper 80s Friday afternoon. Morning lows will drop into the upper 50s for northeast Alabama while they may only drop into the middle 60s in the Shoals. There could be a 10-15 degree temperature spread over north Alabama Friday and Saturday. It all depends on how far west the “wedge” can make it.
We will likely see an increase in humidity late Sunday into Monday. We will reintroduce rain chances at 20 percent Monday afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 90s when fall begins.
