Central AL Forecast: Dry through Mid-Week. Rain Returns Thursday


A foggy start this morning followed by dry and clearing conditions for the remainder of the morning and afternoon. Highs will run seasonably cool with temperatures in the 53-56 degree range.

No big temperature swings expected through Thursday…we’ll stay consistently chilly as January is on-average our coldest month of the year in Alabama. Afternoon highs in the 50s, most mornings seeing lows in the 30s.

Our next biggest chance of rain arrives Thursday morning as another upper-level trough swings through Alabama. Luckily, this next system doesn’t appear to be strong enough to prompt any risk of severe weather. So, as of right now, we’re only expecting scattered light to moderate rain Thursday morning & most of the afternoon & that’s about it. Maybe a few leftover sprinkles Friday morning, then drying out by Friday afternoon.

For the weekend, turning cold both Saturday and Sunday as highs will struggle to reach the upper 40s both days with morning lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s.
