August 20, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Monday afternoon to you! It’s a unique August day for sure, with low humidity and cooler temperatures. While afternoon temperatures remain mild, the low humidity and lower temperatures will be very welcome. Most spots topped out in the middle to upper 80s this afternoon under a mostly sunny sky. The surface cold front is over south Alabama this afternoon, and the front will gradually continue to push southward over the next 12 hours. Areas south and southeast of Tuscaloosa are still dealing with some cloud cover, but skies will clear out there and all across Alabama over the next 12 hours.
With dewpoints in the 50s for much of the area, temperatures tonight will drop like a rock. Expect temperatures to dip below 80 by 8pm and below 70 around 10pm. Skies will become clear across all of central and west Alabama tonight. I don’t expect any risk of rain across our coverage area, but a stray shower is possible across Marengo County through 9pm, then the entire area will go dry.
Skies will remain mostly sunny on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. A surface high just to our north will keep things calm through Friday. Afternoon highs will gradually warm into the lower 90s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Lower humidity will keep 90 degree temperatures fairly nice. Lows will remain in the lower 60s through Friday morning. Some spots will fall into the upper 50s tonight through Wednesday night!
Clouds will gradually increase over the weekend, with a stray afternoon storm or two. Highs will remain in the lower 90s through the weekend.
