The latest forecast from SunsetWx suggests there will be particularly good color in the skies over those regions this evening. The pretty sky is a precursor to a series of weather systems that will bring rainy and unsettled weather to Alabama starting on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Alabama could be in for several rounds of rain, and it could add up to several inches before the week is over. SunsetWx is a company that forecasts sunrise and sunset conditions across the continental U.S. It recently partnered with The Weather Channel. Sunset Weather uses computer models and data from the National Weather Service to craft its forecasts. According to forecasters there, the best sunsets come with the presence of high clouds. High, thin clouds are illuminated by the sun's rays, intensifying the the effect. Sunset times today are 4:37 p.m. in Huntsville, 4:41 p.m. in Birmingham and 4:53 p.m. in Mobile.
