Warmer Today; Rain, Storms Return Next Week | Central AL Forecast

Christmas Day
December 25 2021 12:00 am

Weekend Forecast: A few clouds increasing today and a bit warmer compared to Saturday as highs reach the upper 70s and lower 80s. A brief shower is not out of the question, but the higher rain chances will remain over South Alabama and Mississippi through this evening,

Next Week Outlook: A trough of low pressure and cold front will move through on Monday. This system will set off scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. Then we dry out on Tuesday with a partly cloudy sky and temperatures around 80°. Another cold front is expected to move through on Wednesday into Thursday. This will bring us more thunderstorms; a few could be strong to severe including the possibility for damaging wind, hail, heavy rain, and a few tornadoes. Please stay with The CBS 42 Weather Team for latest details!

After this front moves through we will turn sharply cooler and drier heading into next weekend.

Tracking the Tropics: The tropics are quiet and tropical development is not expected over the next 5 days. Forecast models continue to show that the tropics are starting to calm down as the season only has 6 weeks left. That is not to say we couldn’t see a storm pop-up in the next few weeks, but for now nothing is showing that happening.
