SUNNY, WINDY AFTERNOON: The sky is sunny across Alabama this afternoon with temperatures mostly in the 70s; west winds are averaging 10-20 mph with gusts to 35 mph in spots. A wind advisory will remain in effect for much of North and East Alabama through the evening hours. Tonight will be fair and cool with a low in the 40s. Colder spots could see upper 30s again.
Dry weather continues tomorrow and Thursday with sunny days and fair highs; highs remain in the 70s with lows in the 40s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: A few isolated showers could show up Friday afternoon as moisture levels rise, but the chance of any one spot seeing rain is only 20-30 percent. Otherwise the day will be partly sunny with a high not too far from 80 degrees.
The weekend will be warm with a mix of sun and clouds along with afternoon highs near or just over 80 degrees. We will mention the risk of scattered showers both days, but a decent part of the weekend will be dry. Chance of any one community seeing rain Saturday is 40 percent, and 25 percent Sunday.
NEXT WEEK: The week looks “showery” with some risk of showers on just about a daily basis. The showers should be pretty scattered in nature during the first half of the week, increasing in coverage by Thursday or Friday as a cold front approaches. The week will be warm with highs mostly in the low to mid 80s… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
