Central AL Forecast: Warmer Thursday. Slightly more Muggy. Rainy Weekend.


Lows tonight will settle in the 60s. Dew points are already increasing, making it a little bit more muggy. We will start feeling a bit more muggy by day break tomorrow.

More pleasant weather is expected on Thursday as the area of high pressure remains over Alabama. We will be sunny and hot, and only slightly more humid. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

The area of high pressure will move to the U.S. East Coast on Friday. We will still be dry, but it will slowly become more humid as southerly winds return across Alabama. Expect a partly cloudy day with high temperatures back in the lower 90s.

Father’s Day Weekend Outlook:
We are tracking the tropics and by Thursday we will likely have a tropical depression that could well become a Tropical Storm by Friday. Name or not, we will get a lot of rain out of the deal. Coastal rain starts Friday with waves of rain increasing for central Alabama Saturday into Sunday. Prepare for a rainy father’s day. They entire day will not be a wash out, but there will be some isolated soakers. Not the best day for golf…but a great day for watching it from the comfort of the recliner.

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