IRON BOWL Forecast
There will be a few high clouds that will pass throughout the night, but clear skies will be the norm into early on Thanksgiving morning, but travel around the southeastern U.S. will be great for the trips to see friends and family. Temps on Thanksgiving Day will be into the middle 60s around central Alabama. There will be sunshine, but a few more clouds will start to dot the sky across the region. No rain is expected.
Friday is looking dry as well although the clouds will be back. There will be some clouds that continue from the early morning for the shoppers headed out to find the great deals that happen on Friday, but the temps will warm into the middle and upper 60s across the area. There will not be any rain through Friday or Saturday. There is warm air that will be in place and it will add to the slightly more humid feel to the air, but nothing in the way of precipitation.
Saturday will be a partly to mostly cloudy day for the area. Temps will continue unseasonably warm for the area and many of us will hit the upper 60s and close to 70 for a high on Saturday. Sunday, there will finally be enough moisture moving in with a weak boundary across the southeastern U.S. which will help to kick off a few showers for the state, but a majority of the area will continue dry. There is going to be more moisture that will stream in from the Pacific and that will help to add to the rain chances into the first of next week which will help to increase our scattered rain chances, but there is not anything heavy on the model data as far as rainfall or storms expected.
