WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Some clouds begin to build Sunday afternoon and evening from west to east across the state. A stray shower possible Sunday night, mainly west of I-65. Otherwise, plenty of sunshine throughout the morning with afternoon highs in the middle to upper 80’s.
NEXT WEEK: High temperatures actually drop just a bit, into the low 80s for most of the week. We do see an increase in moisture, however, which will lead to scattered daily showers and storms next week. We don’t expect any washouts or severe weather, but most spots in Central Alabama will see at least some rain at times next week.
TROPICS: Ophelia will trek northward up the east coast through the weekend, producing heavy rain up to the mid-Atlantic where it will continue to weaken. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Phillipe has developed, but is not a threat to land..
