More record-breaking heat expected as we start a new work week and the month of November.
The record high for today is 87° for Huntsville and 86° for Muscle Shoals…both could be tied/set. You certainly won’t need a heavy or layered costume this year, temperatures will fall through the 70s and into the upper 60s during normal trick-or-treating hours. Lows should drop into the upper 50s once again. This warm weather rolls on into the middle of the week. In fact, Tuesday’s high may set the all-time record for the warmest day in November. That record stands at 86° for Muscle Shoals and 84° for Huntsville; we’re forecasting a high of 87°.
Cooler conditions can be expected later in the week behind Thursday’s cold front. We’ll see more cloud cover throughout the day, and isolated rain showers are possible as well. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, but severe weather does not appear likely as things stand now. Unfortunately, this rain chance likely won’t put much of a dent in the drought.
A burn ban remains in effect. Skies will clear on Friday behind the front and it will be feeling more like fall with a north wind. Highs will be in the low/mid 70s into the weekend with overnight lows dipping into the mid 40s.
