Good Thursday afternoon! A large wave of rain and thunder moved across west and central Alabama early during the late morning and early afternoon. At 5pm, rain has ended for west Alabama, with only some light rain still happening near I-65. It is interesting to note that areas east of I-65 have hardly got any rain at all today, while many areas over west Alabama have received near 1″ of rain.

Skies remain mainly cloudy tonight, with a few isolated showers still possible. Most areas will be dry overnight. Clouds move out early Friday morning, with a nice and sunny afternoon. Temperatures will reach the upper 70s Friday afternoon.

This weekend will be warm, with temperatures reaching the lower 80s. Skies will be sunny on Sunday and Monday. I can’t rule out a stray afternoon shower on Sunday, as a weak front approaches and stalls out just north of our area.

Temperatures will warm a bit by the early and middle portion of next week! We’ll reach the upper 80s on Tuesday and Wednesday! A few scattered showers and maybe isolated storms will become possible on Wednesday and Thursday.
