MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - TINY RAIN CHANCE TODAY: A weak front will stroll across Alabama today; there's very little atmospheric moisture available, though, so we think this front will struggle to produce much, if any, rain. We'll maintain a 10% coverage of light showers, but most will stay dry.

ASU VS. MILES: Kickoff is set for 3pm at ASU Stadium; temperatures will fall from the mid 70s at kick into the lower 60s by the final whistle. It'll be close enough that we will mention the small risk of a sprinkle, but I get the idea that most of the rain will be south and east of Montgomery by kickoff.

BLACK FRIDAY: Temperatures will drop into the upper 40s to lower 50s; so it will be cool but not cold for the shoppers searching for great deals. Once the sun comes up, temperatures will quickly warm, eventually reaching a high in the mid 70s.

IRON BOWL: The weekend will be comfortable and dry; sunshine dominates both Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s Friday night and Saturday night. We expect upper 60s to near 70 degrees at kickoff in Tuscaloosa, with readings dropping into the upper 50s by the final whistle.

STORMIER SETUP NEXT WEEK: A powerful area of low pressure will sweep a cold front through the state next week. The latest data slows this front down a bit, so we now believe the best rain chance will likely hold off until late Tuesday or even Wednesday. The slower motion also reduces the risk of severe weather - it's still early and that could change, though. So, we'll keep you posted!
