Central AL Forecast: Dry stretch coming to an end.


Tonight will be another nice night. We will benefit from lower humidity for about one more night then a slow climb in the muggy meter as we move towards the weekend. Rain chances will be spotty tomorrow and Friday, but coverage picks up this weekend.

As we end the week and get into the weekend, moisture increases and during the heating of the day, showers and storms will become scattered across the region. Just like a normal summertime pattern, some of the rain and storms we get Friday and Saturday could be locally heavy with a few storms producing some gusty wind. Temperatures will trend just a little lower with more clouds and rain around. More active weather is expected Sunday and as we start the week on Monday. 

In the Tropics: We’re watching Paulette and Rene way out in the Atlantic and neither one poses an immediate risk to the mainland U.S. over the next week. Elsewhere, the tropics remain quiet.
