FIRST ALERT: Cold temperatures are expected for the next few mornings

First Alert Weather 9p 10-30-20

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The sky is mostly clear this evening with quickly falling temperatures. A First Alert for temperatures in the lower to middle 40s tomorrow morning and even some upper 30s up north.

We will see a good deal of cloud cover but no rain and afternoon readings in the middle and upper 60s. Dress for temperatures falling into the 50s for Trick-or-Treat time.

Halloween does not only fall on a Saturday, but it happens to be a full moon too! It is the second full moon of October making it a Blue Moon, but it’s not actually that color. It’s called a blue moon because of how rare it is. The next time we will see a full moon on Halloween will be in 2039. Feel free to take pictures and send them to us through the First Alert Weather App!

Don’t forget that Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday morning and we “fall” back one hour. You’ll gain an extra hour of sleep, but we’ll lose some much-needed sunlight in the evening hours and sunrise will now occur around 6 a.m. with sunsets occurring before 5 p.m.

Temperatures will be similar on Sunday, but we will get more sunshine and nice weather to keep cleaning up from the mess Zeta left behind. The breeze will increase though so if you are trying to blow leaves, you might want to hold off.

Our next big thing is the arrival of another surge of cold air Sunday evening into Monday morning. We could see a frost across central Alabama Monday morning as temperatures drop into the mid to upper 30s. Frost is possible both Monday and Tuesday mornings.
