in Birmingham, the temperature is 60 degrees, which is typically the daytime high for November. However, this week is unusually warm with temperatures remaining in the low 60s for the next few hours before gradually dropping to around 50 to 55 degrees overnight. By 7 a.m., the temperature will rise back up to 56 degrees and reach the low 80s tomorrow afternoon, slightly cooler in the east and warmer in the west. In the morning, Roebuck will be at 53 degrees, Tuscaloosa at 55 degrees, Harper Ashville around 49 degrees, and Glencoe down to 46 degrees in the cool valleys of Northeast Alabama.
In these areas, it can be up to 5 to 10 degrees colder compared to Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, and Jasper where it will be in the 80s tomorrow afternoon. Harpersville will be around 81 degrees, Jemison at 80 degrees, Roebuck at 80 degrees, and Hoover close to 81 degrees. The daytime high tomorrow will be around 82 degrees. Additionally, there is a high fire danger due to dry conditions, with no official red flag warning but dryness in Tuscaloosa County, Walker County, and Cullman County.
The wind will be coming from the southwest at around 10 to 15 mph, occasionally gusting between 15 and 20 mph, with low humidity. On Friday, a cold front will move in with a limited chance of rain.
However, on Sunday, there will be a surge of moisture coming from the north to northeast, which could result in a decent chance of about a fraction of an inch of rain. While some showers are expected on Saturday and Sunday, it is possible that some communities may receive a half to one inch of rainfall. Although this won’t end the drought, it will help with the ongoing wildfires. Friday’s rain is not expected to significantly impact high school football games, while Sunday will be a bit cooler and wetter.
The weather will then dry out again next week..
