Central AL Forecast: Dry for most of the weekend


\On Saturday, temperatures will start out in the low to mid 60s and climb to the upper 80s. It’ll be a warm afternoon, with humidity climbing. You’ll notice it will feel pretty oppressive outside by Sunday. While we will stay dry on Saturday, that will change on Father’s Day. The ridge of high pressure that’s kept us dry across the southeast over the past few days will start to retreat east. This is why our winds are more southerly, and more moisture is streaming north.

With peak heating of the day, isolated showers and thunderstorms will pop up in the afternoon on Sunday. The greatest chance for seeing the showers and storms will be in West Alabama. Where there isn’t rain, temperatures will be warm and muggy in the upper 80s, low 90s and skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy. 

This pattern will stick around through much of next week, with on and off showers and thunderstorms. The greatest chance for storms will be in the afternoon (driven by peak heating of the day) with a warm, unstable airmass over us. Temperatures will be quite warm and in the upper 80s, low 90s. Unsettled weather will linger through the end of the week.
