Central AL Forecast: Rain Ends for Tonight. Returns Wednesday


The front will remain stalled over central and northern Alabama today. There will also be an area of low pressure along the front and aloft sitting across the Southeast U.S. All of these features will tap into the tropical moisture over Alabama leading to numerous showers and thunderstorms once again. The rain is expected to be heavy at times through Wednesday.

Please stay weather aware and keep an eye out for rising streams, creeks, and rivers! They are already running high, so any more rain will make them flood outside their banks. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s.

The air will remain very humid over us, and that will lead to scattered thunderstorms with some heavy rain Wednesday through Friday. However, the coverage of rain will be less than what we had on Monday and today. Daily high temperatures will be in the mid 80s.

Weekend Outlook: Big changes! Finally, it looks like we will not have as much rain in the forecast this weekend, but it will not be dry. High pressure will sit over the northern Gulf of Mexico, and this will keep the chance for rain lower. Saturday and Sunday will be partly cloudy, hot, and humid with scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Some downpours will be possible each day. High temperatures will be around 90°.

Tracking The Tropics: tropical development is not expected for the next 5 days.
