Behind Wednesday's cold front, winds shift to the northwest, bringing cooler and drier weather back to North Alabama. Cloud cover will overrode overnight with lows dropping to as low as the mid to upper 40s for some Thursday morning.
The rest of the work week looks dry, with clearing skies tomorrow. Temperatures drop a touch into the low 70s Thursday, then fall back to the seasonable upper 60s by Friday. The upcoming weekend is also looking drier, but some rain chances still persist.
The latest forecast track of Tropical Storm Eta keeps it well off to the southeast, making yet another landfall near Tampa, Florida Thursday morning. This updated track keeps all of Eta's moisture away from North Alabama, lowering our rain chances. However, another cold front will bring spotty showers back to the area Sunday and much cooler air behind it for next week.
Once this second cold front moves through Sunday evening, expect a return to seasonable temperatures and plenty of sunshine next week. Highs top out only in the low 60s Monday and Tuesday with lows by Tuesday morning back in the 30s.
