The Next 24 Hours – Dry Friday
After a cold start to the morning with lows in the upper 20s and lower 30s, a sunny sky helps kick start a warm-up that will end with afternoon high temperatures in the lower 60s! Frost is a good bet in the early morning hours, but temperatures quickly warm into the 50s by mid-morning.
A light northeast breeze around 6 to 12 MPH will keep cool, dry air moving in from the northeastern United States; it is going to be milder in spite of that thanks to dry ground and abundant sunshine. Expect a high between 60 and 65º between 1 and 3 PM.
HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS: November weather can be a real gamble for outdoor events, but this week’s high school football playoffs will feature some of the best mid-November weather in recent memory. Temperatures will start out near 50º and drop into the mid-40s under a fair sky. No rain is expected.
GALAXY OF LIGHTS: The Galaxy of Lights at Huntsville Botanical Garden is open for public walk-through Friday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Expect dry weather, a mostly clear sky, and temperatures around 52º at 5:30 PM. It cools down into the upper 30s by 7:30 PM with a light northeast wind at 5-10 MPH.
