Central AL Forecast: Not as hot, some showers as we start the week


Saw a few isolated showers earlier this afternoon out there in Central Alabama to kick off the week. A steady North breeze continues to prevail across the region thanks to an upper-level low parked over the Carolinas. We are on the back-side of the low, which is helping to keep our temperatures near-average and the humidity at fairly comfortable levels.

That same upper-level low we mentioned before will stay in place Tuesday, meaning we won’t see much of a change in our forecast. Temperatures tomorrow will be a smidge cooler…some of us North of Birmingham will struggle to reach 80° in the afternoon. Skies should be partly to mostly cloudy with isolated chances of light showers (20%). Wednesday, the pattern starts to change a bit with warming temperatures and a few showers as well. Expect most of us to stay dry with temperatures a few degrees warmer than Tuesday.

As we head into the end of the week, expect the mercury to continue to climb as rain chances start to evaporate. We’ll stay mostly sunny, with some clouds developing in the afternoon. Temperatures will range from the mid 80s Thursday to the upper 80s and near 90° Friday and for the weekend.
