FIRST ALERT: Warming trend on tap for the start of November
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Though clouds are finally beginning to thing out somewhat, we still have a mostly cloudy sky on First Alert AccuTrack this evening, making for some perfect Halloween weather! Overnight, fog will begin to develop, so we have a First Alert for reduced visibility again for the morning commute. Factor in extra drive time and flip on your low beams if you encounter dense fog tomorrow. Any fog will dissipate by mid-morning. Temperatures will start off in the low 50s then climb into the low 70s tomorrow under a partly cloudy sky. So though we’ll see some welcome breaks of sunshine, a passing disturbance will bring an increase in cloud cover again going into Tuesday night. This system looks “moisture-starved,” so rain chances will be 10% or less for a stray sprinkle Tuesday overnight into early Wednesday; most of us will just stay cloudy and dry.
NEXT BIG THING: A high pressure ridge will begin to build over the Southeast by mid-week, keeping a steady warming trend in the forecast through the weekend. So, temperatures will be running above average for the first week of November. Lows will bottom out in the 50s with highs climbing into the mid to upper 70s. After any clouds move out Wednesday morning, abundant sunshine will stick around through the end of the work week, keeping us high and dry. If you need to take down Halloween decorations or rake any leaves, weather will be comfortable over the next several days.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Humidity will be on the rise as winds shift to out of the southeast again, bringing a meager chance of rain back into the forecast. There is still some uncertainty on whether any isolated showers will even pop-up, but for now, we have a 10-20% low rain chance for Saturday and Sunday. Expect a partly cloudy sky on Saturday and more clouds around for Sunday. For Saturday, lows will bottom out in the upper 50s with highs in the upper 70s. More spots will 80 on Sunday after starting off mild in the 60s during the morning hours. The warm and slightly more humid pattern should stick around for early next week.
TROPICS: Tropical Storm Lisa formed in the Caribbean today, located south of Jamaica as of Monday evening. Lisa will move due westward toward the Yucatan Peninsula, eventually making landfall in Belize as a hurricane on Wednesday, then moving inland and weakening. This system will have no impact on the U.S. Elsewhere, the Atlantic Basin is quiet. We still have one more month of hurricane season left.
