An area of high pressure will build over us Tuesday and east of us on Wednesday. At the same time, and upper-level wave will move across the Deep South. These features will make it partly cloudy and warmer each day. High temperatures will be in the lower 70s. Lows will be in the lower 50s.

Another cold front will move through on Thursday. This one will bring us scattered showers throughout the day. It will be cooler with high temperatures in the mid 60s.

Friday will become mostly sunny, breezy, and drier as an area of high pressure moves north of Alabama. We will be chilly with high temperatures only in the mid 50s.

Expect a mostly cloudy day with high temperatures in the lower 60s. The cold front will move into Alabama Sunday night with scattered showers. The rain will continue into Monday.
