The area of high pressure will move off the Eastern U.S. on Thursday, and that will allow northerly winds to keep sending the smoke over Alabama. We will be partly cloudy, hazy, warm, and more humid. High temperatures will be in the middle 80s.
A few showers will move into Alabama from the west ahead of a strong cold front on Thursday evening, but most of you will be dry.
The strong cold front will move across Alabama on Friday morning, and it will bring us a little rain. However, many of you will not see much rain. This system is not going to help with the dry and drought conditions. Expect a partly cloudy sky with spotty showers throughout the day. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s.
Friday evening will be partly cloudy, breezy, and cooler with temperatures in the 70s for the high school football games. Friday night will be partly cloudy and breezy with a few sprinkles. Lows will be falling to the lower 50s.
