Rain Returns to West Alabama for Wednesday & Thursday | Central AL Forecast


A ridge of high pressure begins moving east and that will allow for some of that tropical moisture to return. This is bringing back the Southerly winds, and that will slowly make it more humid. Down to our South where most of that humid air is now, a large cluster of storms has blown up today in Louisiana and East Mississippi.

For tonight, we will be mostly clear to partly cloudy with patchy fog. It will not be as cool with lows in the lower to mid 60s.  Calm winds, no chance of rain.

There will be weak upper-level wave that will move across Mississippi and sit along the MS/AL border on Wednesday and Thursday. There will be much higher humidity over Mississippi, and it will reach into western Alabama (west of I-65), we could see a stray shower or two across west-central Alabama each day. Eastern Alabama will be dry. Otherwise, most of you will be dry and partly cloudy. It will be warm and humid with high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

The area of high pressure will build back over us on Friday. This will bring in some drier air and keep the rain away. It will be a partly cloudy, warm, and humid day with high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

Weekend Outlook: The area of high pressure will stay across Alabama on Saturday. We will stay partly cloudy, warm and a little humid with high temperatures in the mid 80s. The ridge will weaken just enough on Sunday, and a cold front will stall north of Alabama. This will allow for a stray shower or two to pop-up. Otherwise, we will be partly cloudy and warm with high temperatures in the lower 80s.
