Good Friday afternoon! We’ve had a good number of storms on radar across central Alabama today. Not everyone has picked up rain today, but this marks the beginning of an unsettled pattern through Tuesday.

The weekend will feature an even higher number of scattered storms. I don’t expect an all day rain, but there is a better chance of dealing with a pop up storm. With the weak uplift and tropical moisture, a few storms are possible overnight and during the morning hours as well. Keep the umbrella handy at all times.

There is some evidence a surface front will bring a good chance of showers and storms Tuesday of next week. Rain amounts will vary drastically, but most spots should pick up between 1 and 2 inches over the next 5 days. Temperatures will drop back into the 80s this weekend and early next week.

Drier air may try to slip in here by Tuesday night and Wednesday of next week. This may even include cooler overnight temperatures.
