The cold front will move across the state on Friday with much-needed scattered showers throughout the day. However, not everyone will see rain. Those that do could pick up around 0.25-0.50″. This will not be enough to end the drought, but everything helps. High temperatures will only be in the middle 60s.

The showers will continue on Friday evening with cool temperatures in the 50s for the high school football games.

Weekend Outlook: The cold front will move into the northern Gulf of Mexico this weekend and stall. At the same time, a few upper-level waves will move along the Northern Gulf Coast. This will keep clouds and a few showers over Central Alabama on Saturday with chilly high temperatures in the upper 50s. Another upper-level wave will move across the front on Sunday. This will keep us cloudy with a few more showers mainly in the morning until noon. High temperatures will only be in the upper 50s. Rain totals for this weekend could be another 0.25″ to 1.00″.

Next Week’s Outlook: We will dry out for the first part of next week as an area of high pressure builds across the Southeast U.S. Monday will be mostly sunny and cool with highs in the 60s. A cut-off low will move across the Southeast U.S. Tuesday through Thursday. Tuesday will be partly cloudy and cool with highs staying in the 60s. The low will bring us some showers on Wednesday and Thursday. Then a cold front will move toward Alabama on Friday. This will make it partly to mostly cloudy with more showers possible.
