7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out mild and muggy today, with all of central and west Alabama reaching the 60s. A few spots south of Tuscaloosa reached the 70 degree mark today. Showers were concentrated over north Alabama as of 4:30pm, and the risk of showers along or south of I-20 through the evening is low. Expect temperatures to hold steady all night, with lower to middle 60s area-wide. Areas of patchy fog will develop overnight, and we may see a dense fog advisory needed later tonight.

Thursday will be the warmest day so far this week, with a high in the middle to upper 70s. We’ll see a few peaks of sunshine on Thursday, but skies remain mostly cloudy. A light south breeze will continue to pump humid air in from the Gulf.

Showers increase by Friday afternoon, as a weak cold front approaches from the northwest. Highs will reach 70 on Friday, then dropping into the upper 40s to near 50 Friday night as cooler air temporarily takes over. Look for a few showers through Saturday as well, with a high in the low 60s along and north of I-20, with upper 60s to near 70 to the south. I don’t expect a big rain this weekend, but don’t be surprised if you see a few passing rain showers. Rain amounts will be light and spotty.

Monday, we’ll warm well into the upper 70s, under a mostly cloudy sky. Look for a small chance of a stray shower, but many areas will remain dry.
