Just a touch cooler in the days ahead

headlines

A few clouds as expected today with the passage of a very weak cool front. Weak in the sense that it won’t bring rain and just reinforce cool and dry weather through the end of the week. High pressure settling in brings that dry, colder air and the next few nights will be the coldest we’ll see this week. The next few days will be cooler than what we’ve seen the past few days as well, but there will be plenty of sunshine. Heading toward the weekend, we should get a touch warmer, but there are no weather systems on the horizon to bring us any rain until possibly the middle of next week.

For the rest of this afternoon into the evening, expect partly cloudy skies with a gradual drop in temperatures through the night. Overnight, with clearer skies, temperatures will drop into the mid to upper 40s. Wednesday will be a sunny day, but somewhat cooler with highs not getting above 70°. Wednesday night going into Thursday morning sees temperatures dropping into the low 40s and even upper 30s in some far northern neighborhoods. Thursday will also be a cool day with highs around 70. Highs rise to the mid 70s by the weekend with mostly sunny skies all weekend and through the early part of next week.

Great weather for the Magic City Classic with temps in the 70s, cooler for the tailgaters. The Auburn home game and Alabama away game will require jackets and sweatshirts as they kickoff after sunset.
