Central AL Forecast: Dry and warm this week


Another lovely day to end the weekend. With a northerly breeze, our temperatures remained cool (but slightly warmer than yesterday) in the low 60s. We are going to continue with this beautiful stretch of weather into next week. Dry conditions will persist for the majority of the forecast period. 

TONIGHT: Temperatures will be cold due to the northerly breeze. By tomorrow morning, temperatures will be near freezing. The sky will stay clear.

NEXT WEEK: High pressure across the Deep South will keep our weather calm and beautiful for the majority of the upcoming week. While our winds have been out of the north for the weekend, a southerly breeze will warm things up by late Monday. Expect a cold morning on Monday in the mid 30s. But, by the afternoon, we will be in the upper 60s, low 70s.

Ample sunshine through the week. As the area of high pressure pushes to the east, our winds will shift out of the south and this will cause temperatures to get warmer each afternoon and also cause it to be more humid at the end of the week. 

Clouds will build in towards the end of the week. And it will be a bit more humid on Thursday and Friday. But, no rain expected through the work week. We will see a warming trend and will be around 80 degrees by Friday.

NEXT CHANCE FOR RAIN: Tranquil conditions through the week with no rain through Friday. There is a chance for our next system to arrive next weekend. This would bring an end to our dry streak. Timing will be ironed out as we get closer. But, for now, it looks like the rain will arrive Saturday night into Sunday.
