3 min read

RADAR CHECK: A band of showers is moving through Central Alabama this afternoon as an upper trough approaches. The cold air associated with the upper trough helped to produce some hail from heavier showers this morning in a few spots. The sky is mostly cloudy with temperatures generally in the 60s. Showers will end tonight, and the sky will clear after midnight.

Tomorrow will be sunny and cooler with a high in the 50s for most communities. Dry weather continues Wednesday and Thursday with highs back in the 60s. Then, we will bring in a chance of rain late Friday and Friday night ahead of a cold front. Moisture will be limited, and rain amounts should be 1/2 inch or less. No risk of severe storms.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Rain will end Saturday morning for most of the state, although lingering showers are possible during the afternoon and evening hours near the Gulf Coast. The day will be cooler with a high in the 50s. Then, on Sunday, we expect sunshine in full supply with highs remaining in the 50s. North Alabama communities will likely see a freeze early Sunday morning.

Dry weather continues into the first of the following week with a warming trend. Still no sign of any bitterly cold Arctic air for the Deep South for the next 7-10 days… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
