Alabama Skies: Definitely no snow, but just how cold will our weather be the next few days?

Published 8:46 pm Monday, October 30, 2023

As expected, all that chatter a couple weeks ago for snow in Alabama for Halloween didn’t happen. It’s just too dry for much of any kind of precipitation. In fact, even a bonfire with friends to enjoy our first cold snap of the season could lead to some fines or damages if the fire gets out of control. As drought conditions worsen, people should avoid outdoor fires altogether.

Tuesday night is going to be quite chilly, but Wednesday night is going to be the coldest night this week. We’ll see our freeze warning drop into central and southern parts of the state.

If you’re hoping for autumn to stick around, we have some disappointing news. Temps will rise back into the upper 70s and 80s across the state in the late weekend.
