Patchy fog before sunny and cool for this Thursday

A chilly and clear start to our day with temps into the 30s and 40s all across the viewing area. A few patches of fog have been developing all around the area, but not enough that reduced visibility. There will be sunshine that will help to warm things up throughout the day, but it is only going to be in the middle to lower 60s across the viewing area with a northerly breeze. There will be clear skies that will engulf all of the southeastern U.S.

Afternoon high temps will be below the average high of 72 degrees for the next couple of days, but close to the norm. There will be plenty of sun with a few high passing clouds from time to time, but plenty of blue skies will be enjoyed. There will be chilly morning temps across the area for Friday morning before there is a second cold front, in as many days that brings us a refreshing shot of colder air. This is going to be a noticeably colder batch of air as lower polar air arrives throughout the Mississippi Valley.

The temps this weekend will be in the 50s for highs with overnight lows down into the 30s. This means that after the front passes through on Friday afternoon, it will become much chillier and breezy for much of central Alabama. The highs will not warm much throughout the weekend either with most of us only hitting 55 to 58 degrees WITH sunshine. Another cold start to our Sunday morning with lows down into the lower and middle 30s. This is likely going to be our first frost of the season on Sunday at daybreak with many of us flirting with the freezing mark if not dropping below 32 degrees.

Dry weather will continue into next week so expect to see temps gradually warming thanks to the sunshine and there is not real solid rain chance in the extended forecast for our area.
