The cold snap had Alabamians turning on their heat much earlier than expected this week. Here is the good news, our area is trending for a warm-up today with lots of sunshine. Looking ahead to the weekend, sunny skies and colder nights with highs in the 70s and lows in the mid-40s and lower 50s.

If you are headed out to celebrate the University of Alabama’s homecoming it should be nice weather-wise. You might need to dress in layers or have a light jacket handy.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “Alabama will host Mississippi State Saturday evening (6:00p CT kickoff); the sky will be clear in Tuscaloosa with temperatures falling from near 74 at kickoff into the 60s during the second half.”
