Little change to this great weather pattern

7day

Even though a cool front is on the way, it really won’t have much to work with, so like the one that moved through this past Saturday, it will just reinforce the cool, dry weather pattern. In fact, there likely won’t be a real chance for rain until the middle of next week. More importantly, there won’t likely be a chance for severe weather for possibly several weeks. The cool front and high pressure building in behind it will also suppress a tropical wave currently in the Gulf from impacting our weather. Overall, we’ll see several chilly mornings this week and plenty of sunshine with mild weather.

Clear skies overnight with nearly calm winds and lows chilly in the upper 40s and low 50s. With a bit more wind than last night, there may not be fog early in the morning. The passage of the front during the day Tuesday may kick up a few high clouds, and highs should be in the mid 70s. The coldest nights this week will be Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and Wednesday night into Thursday morning. After the passage of the front, lows then should fall to the low to mid 40s. Highs will generally be in the low to mid 70s through the week, getting a touch warmer by the weekend.

We should begin to see some fall color becoming more vibrant across the northern half of Alabama over the next couple of weeks. There has not been a whole lot of rain lately which really helps in the transition of the colors and their vibrancy. That same lack of rain could also lead to a shorter period of those great colors.

Good news for football fans – another spectacular weekend ahead, but with both games starting after sunset, sweatshirts and jackets are in order as second half temperatures will fall in the low 50s in Knoxville and mid 50s in Auburn.
