TONIGHT: Mostly clear, cool, and comfortable again with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY: A weak ridge of high pressure will build across Alabama on Tuesday and Wednesday. At the same time, there will be a low moving east across the Northern Gulf of Mexico, and a weak backdoor cold front moving in from Georgia. These systems will make it partly cloudy, warmer, and slightly more humid. We could see a few showers and storms pop up each day, but most of you will be dry. High temperatures will be in the middle 80s.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY: The low will move over to Florida on Thursday and Friday. Alabama will be on the backside of this system, and that will increase the humidity with easterly winds. It will also bring us scattered showers and storms on both days. High temperatures will be in the middle 80s.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The low will move farther to the southeast and that will bring in some drier air over the state for the weekend. Saturday will be partly cloudy with only a small chance for a pop-up storm.
Temperatures will trend up over the weekend, with several spots making it into the 90s.
Storm Team 7 Day
