Central AL Forecast: Showers early Monday, warm week


Hope you enjoyed this beautiful, sun-filled weekend! Tonight, clouds are going to start to increase and rain is back in the forecast. Due to the cloud cover, our temperatures will remain a bit warmer than overnight (compared to the frigid nights we are used to). By early tomorrow morning, expect temperatures to be in the low 40s.

A weak cold front will be moving through the area. While this front isn’t going to do much to lower our temperatures, it will bring us the chance of rain back into the forecast. Expect scattered showers overnight and early tomorrow morning before clearing out from west to east by late morning, early afternoon.

Next Week Outlook: Once the rain clears by Monday afternoon, the sky will clear and our temperatures will be in the upper 50s, low 60s. GET READY FOR A WARM week ahead. Our temperatures are going to be in the low to mid 60s on Tuesday and even in the upper 60s on Wednesday. Morning lows will be in the upper 30s, low 40s.

High pressure will be in place at the surface for the southeast through much of the week, keeping our weather calm. The sky will be clear through midweek. But, by the end of the week, it looks like we will be turning to a much more active (i.e. rainy) pattern. An isolated shower will be possible on Thursday. Better chances for rain arrive Friday and into next weekend.
