FIRST ALERT: Possible patchy frost northeast Friday, Saturday nights
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s cool, but at least warmer than yesterday, sunnier, and we could see a pretty sunset. If so, take a picture of it landscape style and share it with us via the WBRC First Alert Weather App. If you have any plans to be out this evening, grab the coat! Temperatures are forecast to cool into the lower 50s by 7 p.m. and in the upper 40s by 10 p.m.
FIRST ALERT FOR PATCHY FROST! If you live along and north of I-20/59, you may want to protect your plants before tonight. With decreasing clouds and light winds, temperatures could drop into the upper 30s for many spots, especially northeast where middle 30s are even possible. Protect sensitive plants and have your pets inside both tonight and Saturday night because we will see similar temperatures on Sunday morning too.
Our Next Big Thing is that sunshine and warmer temperatures will finally return. Tomorrow will give way to a partly cloudy to a mostly sunny sky. Cloud cover could linger for far east Alabama Saturday afternoon, but areas farther west will enjoy a mostly sunny sky. Temperatures are likely to warm up into the low to mid 60s. Sunday will give way to plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 60s. Should be a great weekend to spend time outdoors. It’ll just be a little chilly. Just a friendly reminder that Daylight Saving Time ends early Sunday morning. We “fall” back and gain an extra hour. Good reminder to replace the batteries from your smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, weather radio, and replace your air filters. Sunrise Sunday morning will now occur at 6:11 a.m. and sunset will occur at 4:49 p.m. Get ready for dark evening commutes!
If you are attending the UAB game at 11 a.m. in Birmingham, grab the jacket and sunscreen! We should see a mostly sunny sky with kickoff temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Temperatures are forecast to warm into the low to mid 60s by the end of the game with sunny conditions. Winds will remain light at 5-10 mph from the north. Auburn is traveling to College Station, Texas to take on the Aggies Saturday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. Weather is looking fantastic with plenty of sunshine. Kickoff temperatures will likely start out in the upper 60s. Plan for temperatures to cool into the low to mid 60s by the end of the game. Alabama is hosting the LSU Tigers in Tuscaloosa Saturday evening at 6 p.m. I would grab the jacket as it will end up chilly for the game. Kickoff temperatures could start out in the upper 50s and cool into the lower 50s by the end of the game with a mostly clear sky.
Next week looks dry and milder than normal through the middle of the week. Our next cold front will impact us between the Thursday and Saturday time frame. There is still some uncertainty regarding the exact timing so keep checking back with us for updates!
Have a great evening.
