Central AL Forecast: Less Humid. More Sunshine.


After a passing “cool” front today, the air turns drier. We will feel the most difference Wednesday morning as lows start in the lower 60s. I wouldn’t be surprised to have a few upper 50s in our northern most communities.

High pressure becomes our friend for a couple days and provides copious amounts of sunshine and a string of rain-free days. We will even get a short break from the humidity. Temperatures will still make it into the upper 80s, but without the moisture in the air, it won’t feel as sticky.

Weekend Outlook: The forecast this weekend will depend on what the possible tropical system (Invest 92L) in the Gulf of Mexico does. Right now, it is expected to become a tropical depression or tropical storm. The forecast track is still up for debate since the models are NOT in agreement. Models have the rain from Mexico to Mobile Bay at this point, so there will be a lot to iron out in the coming days. Regardless of the exact landfall, we can still bank on some pretty heavy rain along the central coast.

The forecast calls for us to be mostly cloudy, warm, and more humid on Saturday with a few showers and a few storms. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Sunday will have scattered showers and storms with some heavy rain at times. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. More rain will arrive Sunday night with a soggy day likely on Monday depending on where the disturbance tracks. NOTE: This forecast will likely change several times before we get to the weekend depending on what Invest 92L does. Stay tuned!
