Central AL Forecast: Rain Ends Tonight. Heat Returns Friday.


Friday: A warmer, summer-like day is shaping for the end of the week. Morning lows start in the upper 60s. Patchy fog is possible. By lunchtime we’ll be back in the 80s. It stays mainly dry tomorrow as highs climb into upper 80s.

Weekend Outlook:
Saturday will be the hottest day we have over the next 7 days. Temperatures near 90 in most spots, a few spots in West Alabama may even hit that 90° mark. We will see a nice supply of sunshine and a few fair weather cumulus clouds. (Those puffy white ones). There is a small chance of a pop up shower, but we will be on the drier side of the stalled front, really limiting much rain activity to start the weekend.

Sunday will start quiet. Morning temps in the upper 60s. A few more clouds move in Sunday keeping afternoon temps in the mid 80s. A better chance of rain develops late Sunday as a wave moves over the state prompting late-day, pop up thunderstorms. It’s going to be the case of the haves and have nots.

Tropical Update: No development is expected the next 5 days.
