Central AL Forecast: Turning Drier for the Weekend


We will see a little change in the pattern by this weekend, leading to lower rain chances overall. This will also drive our temperatures up a bit, with more afternoon highs in the low 90s Saturday and Sunday. 

Next week, the upper trough that has kept us unsettled this week, will slide to the east and increase our flow from the north instead of the south. This will lower our overall rain chances, but we’ll keep scattered showers in the forecast due to the uncertainty in the details. If rain chances go down, temperatures will go up. 

In the Tropics: Hurricane Isaias will continue moving through the Bahamas today, before making a turn to the north this evening and tonight, impacting the east coast of Florida. It will continue to skirt the east coast of the U.S. through the weekend and into next week. This will actually influence our weather a bit, keeping northerly flow in place over the Deep South and driving rain chances down.
