Central AL Forecast: Cold Start to Thursday. Nice warm up by Afternoon

July 04 2021 12:00 am

It will be another cold start to the morning with temperatures in the 30s across the board. Grab the coats. It will be a layers kind of day. With sunshine back in full supply, we will be back in the mid 60s Thursday.

A substantial change on Friday sees our pattern flip from northwesterly flow in the upper levels to more of a westerly flow. This will lead to much milder temperatures through the region. Morning lows will drop to the 40s instead of the 30s. Highs on Friday will reach the mid and upper 60. Even warmer temperatures are expected for the weekend ahead with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s, and highs in the low 70s. 

As we start next week, another cold front will sweep through the Deep South. The timing and impacts are still a bit murky at this time, but we’ve put rain chances in the forecast for Monday. 

In the Tropics: Iota will weaken as it moves west through Central America and into the Pacific over the next 24 hours. The rest of the tropics are quiet this morning.
