Central AL Forecast: Warmer with fewer storms Saturday. Scattered storms return Sunday


Weekend Outlook: A cut-off upper-level low will be sitting over Texas this weekend. It will be far enough away from Alabama to impact our weather on Saturday. We will be partly cloudy, hot and a little humid with only a slight chance for a pop-up afternoon shower. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to around 90°.

Expect Sunday to be a little wetter as the low moves into the Arklamiss area. It will send an upper-level wave/disturbance across Alabama. This will set off scattered showers and storms mainly during the heating of the day. It will be warm and more humid with high temperatures in the lower to mid 80s.

Next Week Outlook: The cut-off low will continue to send a few upper-level waves/disturbances across central Alabama on Monday and Tuesday. We will have numerous showers and storms each day. Some heavy rain is likely since we will have high humidity levels. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s. The low will weaken into an open wave and we will have fewer storms on Wednesday and Thursday. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Look for a more typical summer weather pattern by the end of next week. This is where we start the day muggy and have pop-up scattered storms by the afternoon. It will be very warm with high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

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