Central AL Forecast: A Break in the Rain Tonight. More Wet Weather Thu-Fri.

Labor Day Weekend
September 06 2021 08:00 am

On Thursday, Elsa will move northeast across the Carolinas, but the trough will remain over us. Deep tropical moisture from Elsa will remain over Alabama, so expect more scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some heavy rain is still possible with any storm that develops. High temperatures will be in the 80s. For those that see a bit more sunshine, these temperatures could warm into the upper 80s, for those that clouds and rain, highs may only get into the low/mid 80s.

Numerous showers and isolated storms likely both Thursday and Friday, with coverage about 60% both days. Thanks to the humid air over us from Elsa and the trough pulling off to the East of Alabama, the weather stays a bit unsettled through the end of the week.

Weekend Outlook: We will see a decrease in the coverage of rain this weekend, but it will be hot and humid. An area of low pressure will be located over the Great Plains will send a few upper-level waves across the Southeast U.S. These waves will help set off some pop-up afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise, we will be partly cloudy and hot with high temperatures in the upper 80s. The heat index will be around 95-100° each day. It will be a good pool weekend, just listen out for thunder.
