Central AL Forecast: Drier and cooler weather dominates the forecast


We’re tracking cooling temperatures and mostly dry weather for the extended forecast.

The weekend will stay cool, but each day will look a little different. A tropical wave in the Gulf will sling some clouds into the region and rain to the Gulf coast and possibly our southern counties today, but most of us stay dry without much sunshine. Sunday the clouds will clear out and sunshine will dominate. High temperatures both days will generally stay in the 70s. The sunshine will be in abundance for the start of the week with temperatures staying cooler than average in the mornings and afternoons. 

In the Tropics: We have Tropical Storm Beta located in The Gulf of Mexico and is expected to head west to the Texas Coast, making landfall as a tropical storm or potentially a category 1 hurricane early next week near Corpus Christi. No significant impacts for Alabama, although flooding is likely along the Texas Coast next week.
