Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather has remained mostly dry across the state, with temperatures warming well into the 80s. A few showers have developed on radar along the HWY 80 corridor, especially near and east of Selma. Areas to the north remain dry this afternoon. There could be some patchy fog in spots tonight, so be careful driving overnight and into the early morning hours.

Models continue to suggest a cluster of storms will approach northwest and west Alabama by mid to late afternoon on Friday. We may have to bump up the rain chance Friday afternoon/eve as new data comes in. Expect skies to become mostly cloudy Friday afternoon and evening, as highs approach the middle 80s. Either way, most of Friday will be dry, with the main issues with rain chances coming after 3pm.

A few scattered pop up storms are possible on Saturday, mainly the typical heat activated activity. I do not expect a washout on Saturday. Highs will reach the middle 80s Saturday afternoon. A weakening cold front will slip into north and central Alabama on Sunday, with a good chance of a few passing showers and storms. I don’t expect it to rain the entire day on Sunday, but there could be a few storms at any time. Severe weather is not expected at this time. The front will likely slip into south Alabama on Monday, but I’ve left a small chance of a few scattered showers or storms in the forecast on Monday, but models suggest most of the day will be dry.

A wave of low pressure will track across the area on Tuesday, bringing a good chance of a few showers and storms. I don’t expect an all day rain on Tuesday, but some areas could get a good downpour or two. Highs will back down just a bit early next week, with highs reaching the 70s.
