HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – It is time to pull out your jackets and sweaters! You will need them later this week.

A cold front moving through Monday afternoon delivers a long-awaited taste of fall which will last for several days this week.

After one more day with highs in the upper 80s to near 90, highs starting Tuesday will only reach the upper 70s and lower 80s. A few communities on Sand and Lookout Mountains may stay in the low and middle 70s on Thursday and Friday.

Temperatures at night will also be noticeably cooler. Readings in the upper 40s are possible in the cooler valleys Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. Flip through the gallery above to get an idea of how cool it might get where you live later this week.

While this flip to fall will be very nice, we desperately need rain. September and October are our driest months, and beneficial rain is not looking promising within the next 10 days.
