A short wave over the Midwest will rotate into the base of an eastern U.S. long wave trough which will help to drive a cold front across the forecast area overnight. There is no precipitation associated with this front. Clear skies and a reinforced dry air mass will allow for a good diurnal range in temps. This afternoon`s mid 80s will fall to the lower 50s before daybreak Sunday. The normally cooler areas in AL and GA north of Dothan to Albany line will drop into the upper 40s. .Short Term [Sunday Through Monday Night]...
