Central AL Forecast: Unsettled Weather Through the End of the Week


I may sound like a broken record for a few days. Dry mornings followed by afternoon storms.
Moisture will be streaming in from the Gulf of Mexico and add in a little afternoon heat and boom, scattered showers and storms are possible. Like most afternoon pulse storms, there are some that could trend severe briefly. This includes strong winds, heavy rain and frequent lightning. Look for Highs will reach the mid 80s to upper 80s depending on where showers and more clouds are seen. If you stay dry, you’ll be warmer than spots that see showers in the afternoon. 

By Friday, our upper-level pattern changes and rain chances will be a little less widespread. We’ll hang on to enough instability and heat to pop some isolated showers and storms in the afternoons, but they won’t be as widespread as today and tomorrow. Looks for temperatures to be a few degrees warmer overall as well, back in the mid to upper 80s and near 90. 

This weekend and as we start next week look pretty similar, with isolated rain chances each day and temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s. This weekend, we’ll also watch Tropical Depression Three, which will mostly likely become Cristobal, as it moves into the Gulf of Mexico. It’s way too early to say where this storm will be headed, so stay tuned over the next few days.
