Central AL Forecast: Cool start to the week, warm-up coming soon


Coming off a PERFECT afternoon in the weather department! We saw highs near 70°and abundant sunshine with the bone-dry air currently in place. Hope you got the chance to enjoy it out there! Tonight, temperatures drop quickly thanks to that dry air, and we end up in the mid 40s by tomorrow morning.

We’ll see a mini warm-up Tuesday into Wednesday with temperatures in the mid 70s tomorrow afternoon. With clouds around tonight and early Wednesday morning, expect lows to fall only to the low and mid 50s. Clouds persist on Wednesday afternoon, but that won’t stop temperatures from rising to the low 80s in most places. This is finally on par with our average highs for the middle of May.

Unlike last week, our temperatures will continue to climb. Thursday and Friday, look for temperatures to peak above average, hitting the mid and upper 80s with more sunshine in the afternoon. Rain chances look very low until we get to Friday afternoon when a stray shower or two are possible. We’ll continue the trend of very warm days with small rain chances as we start the weekend.
