Good Thursday afternoon! Portions of north and central Alabama have experienced passing scattered storms today, but not everyone has got rain yet, especially in areas to the south of I-20. As a cold front moves into Alabama this evening, expect a good chance of showers and storms beginning in northwest Alabama soon, then shifting southeast as the evening progresses. Models agree that the main round of storms will be over well before midnight, with only a small chance of a shower between midnight and sunrise Friday.
Drier air will take over on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Expect highs to reach the lower 80s on Friday and Saturday, under a mostly sunny sky. A second cold front will push through the state sometime on Saturday, bringing slightly cooler air on Sunday. Highs will only top out in the 70s on Sunday, with some passing clouds. Expect lows well down into the 50s Friday night through Sunday night.
A warm front will track northward on Monday, with a small chance of isolated showers or perhaps a storm.
Our next system to impact Alabama will arrive next week, with a decent risk of scattered showers and storms late Tuesday through Thursday. It will not rain the entire time, but a few waves of showers and storms will become possible…
