Central AL Forecast: Showers Sunday, Storms possible Monday


Clouds and a few light showers have spread across Central Alabama. For the remainder of the evening, there will be isolated showers and cloudy skies. Temperatures will remain mild overnight and linger in the 50s for the start of Monday. 

A brisk wind out of the south for the start of the week is going to make it warm and breezy outside. It is going to feel like spring on Monday with the warmest temperatures so far of 2021! After a mild start in the mid to upper 50s, temperatures will climb to the upper 60s, low 70s! It’ll be a little more humid outside as well. The sky will remain cloudy. After an isolated shower in the morning, most of the day will remain dry with scattered showers and thunderstorms by the evening. 

The main threat for severe weather is to our north towards Memphis. However, we could still see a few isolated thunderstorms in the evening with an approaching cold front. Rain and thunderstorms will be traveling from west to east overnight into Tuesday. 

The wet weather will clear the area and sink to the south by Tuesday morning. We will get a break from the threat for rain and the sun will even peak out by Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures will remain mild and in the upper 50s in the morning and climb to the upper 60s, low 70s once again by the afternoon. 

The showers to our south on Tuesday will continue to drift north and bring a more widespread rain event to our area throughout the day on Wednesday. Expect a pretty soggy mid week. Temperatures Wednesday will still be mild, in the upper 40s in the morning and in the low to mid 60s in the afternoon. 

Colder air will move in behind the system that brings us the rain on Wednesday. So, expect the return of winter like temperatures Thursday. Thursday morning, temperatures will dip into the upper 20s. The sky will clear out and we will see a mostly sunny afternoon with afternoon highs in the low 50s. Sunny and dry, yet colder, conditions will stick around through the first half of next weekend.
