HUNTSVILLE, Ala — A cold morning across the Tennessee Valley! Some were able to drop into the low 40s last night and early this morning. It was a beautiful Friday afternoon across North Alabama and southern Middle Tennessee. Plenty of sunshine with only a few clouds across the area. Still even with the ample sunshine, temperatures failed to meet seasonal norms once again this afternoon.
This has been a pretty common trend in the month of May. Including today (Friday, May 14th) the daily high temperature has been below the seasonal norm 11 times this month. We were above the daily normal twice, and exactly the daily normal once.

We've been talking about an area of high pressure to our north for the last several days. That high is finally going to shift to the east this weekend, allowing our winds to change directions. winds will become more southerly this weekend, and in return we'll begin to see temperatures climb.
High temperatures on Saturday will be in the upper 70s, and then we climb into the low 80s on Sunday. Despite winds having more of a southerly component, we will not see a serious rise in dew points so it should feel comfortable for any outdoor plans this weekend.
Th Rocket City Trash Pandas will play their first home weekend game Saturday at Toyota Field! The forecast looks amazing with temperatures falling only into the mid-60s by the time things wrap up.
