MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A clear, cold Alabama night is in progress - temperatures drop into the 29-36 degree range by sunrise Wednesday. Frost is likely, pets should come indoors. A bright supply of November sun will crank temperatures into the lower 60s today. Thanksgiving will be even warmer, that same bright sun will drive temperatures up to roughly 70 degrees by Thursday afternoon.

Fortunately it will be sunny over the next two days and the wind will be lighter than it was on Monday.

The all-important Thanksgiving and Black Friday forecast is still looking good. Thanksgiving will bring sun and clouds, dry weather and highs around 70 degrees.

That is great news for the Turkey Day Classic being played in Montgomery. The weather for the game couldn’t be better this time of year!

A weak cold front will slide through Thanksgiving night, bringing some light showers to some communities between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m.

Fortunately that front will clear by sunrise, leading to a dry Black Friday for any shopping you’d like to get done! Skies will even clear throughout the day, meaning the afternoon will be filled with sunshine.

It will continue to be dry with a good deal of sun this weekend and early next week with no signs of a big warming trend or legitimate rain chance.

Temps will likely stay in the 50s and 60s with overnight lows down in the 30s beginning Black Friday.

That includes the Iron Bowl this Saturday, which will be dry and unseasonably cool in Auburn. Highs will only be near 60 degrees.
