Central AL Forecast: Overnight Storms. Sun returns Tuesday After noon.


A cold front is moving across Alabama as we speak. This is bringing heavy rain, gusty winds, and some pockets of lightning. Although the severe threat is very low, I still recommend downloading our CBS 42 App to alert you of any changes overnight.

Winds will be strongest along the leading edge of the storm. The severe wind risk has been extended to include most of our viewing area tonight From Hamilton to Heflin and as far south as Maplesville, in Chilton Co.

We will start the day with scattered showers and a few storms, but they will end by late-morning. Then we will become partly cloudy in the afternoon. It will still be warm, but becoming less humid. High temperatures will be around 80. Tuesday night will be clear and more comfortable. Lows will be in the lower to mid 60s. Nice and refreshing!

An area of high pressure will build north of Alabama Wednesday through Friday. Each day will be partly cloudy with only a very small chance for a pop-up shower. We will be warm and slowly becoming more humid by Friday. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s.

Weekend Outlook: The area of high pressure will be along the U.S. East Coast. This will bring back southerly winds to the Birmingham area all weekend. This will make it warm and more humid. Saturday will be partly cloudy with a few showers and storms popping up with the heating of the day. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Sunday will be warm and humid with a little better chance for afternoon pop-up showers and storms. High temperatures will remain in the mid 80s.

That’s all for now!  Be sure to follow the CBS 42 Storm Team on:
