Good Wednesday afternoon! There are a few pop up storms on radar this afternoon, but as expected, most areas are not getting rain today. If you happen to get under one of the isolated showers or storms, it won’t last long in one spot. Temperatures will slowly cool back into the 60s overnight, with a low in the lower 60s along I-20.
Thursday will feature a warm and mostly dry day, as highs reach the lower 80s. Skies will become partly sunny as we’ll be stuck between two storm systems. I can’t rule out a lone shower or storm Thursday afternoon somewhere across central Alabama, but the risk is low.
A surface low will move over the area on Friday, with a good chance of rain and storms. A few storms could become strong, and we’ll have to watch radar trends carefully for an isolated severe storm or two. Given the amount of instability and wind shear available on Friday, it’s a day that needs watching. At the moment, I don’t see an overly high threat… Rain amounts will likely reach 1″ for most of west and central Alabama.
The weekend is looking nice, as dry air filters into Alabama. Highs will reach the lower 80s on Saturday and Sunday, with lows in the upper 50s at night. Expect lots of sunshine this weekend.
