This will spread plenty of clouds and scattered showers across Central Alabama mainly along and south of I-20. High temperatures will be in the middle 70s.
Birmingham could pick up 0.10-0.25″+ of rain, but the higher rainfall amounts will be over South Alabama.
The low will move east of the Alabama Coast and into northern Florida on Thursday. We will have some lingering clouds and a stray shower possible. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy and mild with high temperatures in the upper 70s.
A cold front will move toward Alabama on Friday. This will make it partly cloudy with a few showers popping up during the afternoon and evening. However, many of you will be dry. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s.

High temperatures will be in the middle 70s. An area of high pressure will be West of Alabama on Sunday, and this will send a reinforcing push of MUCH COOLER air into Alabama.
