Alabama Skies: Major changes, including some rain chances, in our forecast

Published 7:41 pm Wednesday, October 4, 2023

Wow! It’s hard to believe our long, steamy summer is finally over. Sure, anyone from Alabama knows we can have hot, humid weather any month of the year, including shorts on Christmas, but we finally see our first strong cold front of the fall!

Thursday is the warmest day out of the next several days with temps forecasting to drop even lower than we had hoped a week ago. In fact, people that aren’t celebrating the first chilly temps of the year may need a jacket for church Sunday morning.

Thursday will bring a lot of clouds with very little rainfall during the day. Some of us will have some decent rain chances overnight with some more rain possible Friday.
