James Spann: Mostly dry weekend ahead in Alabama; rain/storms will return Wednesday

ANOTHER FINE FALL AFTERNOON: Temperatures are generally in the 68-72 degree range across Alabama this afternoon with a mostly sunny sky. Tonight will be fair with a low not too far from 50 degrees for most communities.

Dry, pleasant weather continues tomorrow with a partly to mostly sunny sky; the high will be in the 71-75 degree range. Then, on Sunday, an approaching front could trigger a few isolated showers over the northern third of the state, but moisture and dynamic support will be very limited. Most places will be dry; the high will be around 70 with a mix of sun and clouds.

THANKSGIVING WEEK: Monday and Tuesday will be dry with a good supply of sunshine both days. The high Monday will be in the mid-60s, followed by a 70 degree day Tuesday. Then, a storm system will bring a batch of rain and thunderstorms to the state Wednesday. For now, global models show very limited instability, with little chance of organized severe thunderstorms. However, we will still keep a close eye on the situation as the event gets closer. Rain amounts on Wednesday should be around 1 inch.

Dry weather returns for Thanksgiving Day and “Black Friday” with a mostly sunny sky both days; highs will be in the upper 60s. Rain returns on Saturday, Nov. 28.
