Thursday: On and Off Rain From Sun up to Sun Down | Central AL Forecast

Christmas Day
December 25 2021 12:00 am

The cold front will move across Alabama on Thursday. This will bring us scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. No severe weather is expected, but a few downpours are posisble. It will be mild and a little more humid with high temperatures in the mid 70s. The rain will come to an end on Thursday night with lows in the 50s.

The cold front will be south of Birmingham by Friday morning, and any rain will be gone. The GFS model is still showing the front stalling over south Alabama, and then washing out during the day. This should not have much of an impact to the weather across central Alabama. You can expect it will be partly cloudy and be a little less humid with high temperatures in the lower to mid 70s.

Weekend Forecast: An area of high pressure is forecast to build over the Southeast U.S. this weekend. This will make it mostly sunny and mild on Saturday with high temperatures in the upper 70s. Sunday will be warmer and pleasant with high temperatures back in the lower 80s.

Tracking the Tropics: The tropics are quiet and tropical development is not expected over the next 5 days. It looks like the tropics are starting to calm down as the season only has 6 weeks left. That is not to say we couldn’t see a storm pop-up, but the forecast models are keeping the tropics quiet through the end of October. Cross your fingers.
