Less Rain Coverage Today/Thursday, Picks Back Up Friday | Central AL Forecast


For today, we’re keeping a 30% chance of afternoon showers in the forecast.  While the number of storms are decreasing compared to recent days, a few downpours will remain possible along with frequent lightning within any storm that develops. Otherwise, very muggy conditions will persist when it’s not raining in the early morning & late evening.  Afternoon highs expected in the upper 80s, and due to humidity levels it will feel ever hotter.

For the rest of the week ahead, we’re expecting slightly less rain coverage during the afternoon on Thursday & Friday. Warm, muggy conditions will persist. Heading into the weekend, we’ll see those rain chances gradually go back up with still a good stream of tropical moisture coming in from the Gulf. As far as our temperatures go, we’ll be trending a few degrees below average for mid-July with highs expected in the upper 80s for the rest of the week.

That’s all for now!  Be sure to follow the CBS 42 Storm Team on:
