BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We are tracking clearing skies and increasing sunshine from northwest to southeast Thursday. It may take until the early afternoon hours for sunshine to make it to Birmingham, but it has already made it to Hamilton. It will be a cooler than normal afternoon and temperatures will reach the upper 50s most places.

You'll need the heat on tonight because temperatures are going to fall into the upper 30s and lower 40s under clear skies. The breezy picks up out of the north on Friday, sunshine will be abundant and temperatures rise into the lower 60s. It will be cool for high school football and another great night to light a fire.

Expect a chilly start to Veterans Day. FIRST ALERT for patchy frost, especially north where temperatures dip into the middle 30s. Temperatures warm into the lower 60s for the parade and middle 50s for the fireworks. Conditions down in Auburn look good too, and I would plan on temperatures in the middle 60s at kick off and a partly sunny sky. If you are traveling to Mississippi to watch Alabama play, then pack a jacket because temperatures will be in the 50s and 40s.

We will see low clouds on the increase to start off Sunday and some breaks of afternoon sunshine. Temperatures start off in the 40s and warm into the lower 60s. The chance for a shower is very low.

Next week features seasonal temperatures and dry weather.
