Did you eat too much turkey yesterday? Yeah, so did I!! Makes you want to cuddle up in bed and sleep for a very long time, except you know what today is…
Black Friday Forecast: Most of the time, many of us are asleep during the last night or early morning hours of the day, but today we have to make a special exception because it is the day after Thanksgiving!! Lots of people are out and about trying to score the best deals possible, even if that means they have to be out in the cold. Any clouds we saw on Thanksgiving have pushed out of our area, leaving clear and cold conditions. With lows area wide falling back into the upper 20s and low 30s, hopefully all the Black Friday shoppers brought their winter coats with them this morning. Luckily, these cool temperatures will rebound nicely… although below average for this time of year, we will see highs in the upper 50s again for Friday. High pressure will continue to build into the region and slowly slide eastward over the weekend. This means calm and sunny conditions will remain in the forecast for the foreseeable future.
Iron Bowl Saturday: Every Saturday during the fall season is important here in Alabama, but this Saturday is even more important. Auburn travels to Tuscaloosa to battle it out with Alabama during the annual Iron Bowl. Although the past few days have been on the chilly and breezy side, weather looks great for some football action. Temperatures will rebound big time over the weekend… sunshine will continue to be plentiful during the day Saturday, allowing temperatures to warm nicely into the mid 60s. Can you say perfect day for tailgating before the big game?! By the time we get to kickoff at 6:45PM, temperatures will drop, but they will still be comfortable in the upper 50s. Make sure to keep a sweatshirt handy though, because by the end of the game temperatures will drop into the low 50s. If you are hanging around after the game, those temperatures will continue to drop into the upper 40s for overnight lows.
Rest of the Weekend & Beyond: As if plentiful sunshine and limited rain chances were not enough over the next couple of days, we will also see temperatures slowly start to moderate as well in time for the start of December. By the time we make it through the second half of the weekend, we will see highs topping out in the low 70s… talk about comfortable for the end of November!! This nice strength of weather will continue into the new workweek and will continue through midweek.
