Good Tuesday afternoon! Clouds have really increased across the state today in response to a weak upper level disturbance tracking across the area. Most spots are dry, but a few sprinkles and light showers have developed south of I-20. These showers are moving east and won’t cause any impact on travel. Expect temperatures to gradually fall into the mid or lower 60s tonight, under a mostly cloudy sky.
Wednesday and Thursday will maintain warm days, with highs in the lower 80s both afternoons. There is a small chance of a few pop up showers or storms across central Alabama, but I expect many areas to remain dry.
A weak surface low will form and move right across the state on Friday. Expect a batch of locally heavy rain and storms to move over our area during the day on Friday. Most of west and central Alabama will get atleast 1 inch of rain, with higher amounts scattered about.
Drier air will take over again by next weekend, however, we’ll need to keep an eye on Saturday incase this system slows down its exit.
