Bill Murray: Perfect Fall Weather for Alabama


ULTIMATELY: Our long-awaited front crosses central Alabama this morning. Northwest winds are gusting 25 mph behind the front, and they are expected to remain strong throughout the day. A line of weakening showers moved southeast overnight. A severe thunderstorm watch was in effect until midnight, but the southern end of the line was weak. The sky has turned cloudy for a while, but is expected to clear up quickly as drier air spreads over the area. Highs this afternoon will be between 67 and 70 degrees in most places. Tonight’s lows will mostly be in the 1940s, but some levels above the 30s will be measured in the normally cooler parts of northern Alabama.

SUNDAY: Sunday will be a fantastic fall day with abundant sunshine and highs near 70. Sunday night will be another chilly, with widespread 40s. It will be the coldest air so far this season for most communities.
