Central AL Forecast: Unsettled weather through Friday. Weekend Sun.


Tonight: Evening storms will fizzle out as we near midnight. It will be a quiet start to our Thursday. Lows will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Thursday will be partly cloudy, with a good supply of heat and humidity. Afternoon showers and storms will be popping up again. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s.

Friday will have scattered showers and thunderstorms as the cold front moves into Alabama. Some heavy rain is possible. High temperatures will be held down into the lower 80s. More rain and storms are expected Friday night with lows in the mid to upper 60s. Storms should clear to our south near sunset Friday evening.

4th of July Weekend Outlook: The forecast models are in agreement that the cold front will move all the way to the coast and then stall. An area of high pressure will build in just north of Alabama all weekend. Saturday is looking dry and sunny. The winds shift out of the north bringing in some cooler air and lower humilities. It will be warm with high temperatures in the lower to mid 80s, but not sweltering. Sunday will be mostly sunny, warm and less humid. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Temperature-wise this is pretty fantastic for the 4th of July Weekend.

Beach Forecast: The cold front that brings us wet weather on Friday will move to the coast and essentially stall for a few days. This will keep the coast faced with intermittent showers and isolated storms through the weekend.
