RADAR CHECK: We have a little light rain on radar this afternoon over parts of North and East Alabama, but with limited moisture and weak dynamic forcing rain amounts have been very light, generally not enough to measure. We will maintain the chance of a few sprinkles tonight and early tomorrow, but many places won’t see a drop. The sky will remain mostly cloudy through tonight with lows in the 50s.

Any lingering showers will end early tomorrow, and the sky becomes partly sunny by afternoon with a high in the mid 70s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The weather will be dry across the Deep South with sunny days and fair nights. Saturday will be the warmest day with a high in the 76-82 degree range; Sunday’s high will be in the low to mid 70s.

NEXT WEEK: The week looks dry for now with mostly sunny mild days and clear cool nights. Highs mostly in the 70s, lows mostly in the 50s. It sure looks like we will have to wait until early November for the next significant rain event… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
