The clouds continue to linger in many locations as we head into the afternoon hours, but some clearing is underway to the north. Despite the clouds, most locations remain dry, we can’t rule out a few isolated showers across the Alabama landscape this afternoon and evening. It it a cool May day with temperature struggling to reach the 70° mark. Tonight, look for clouds with a passing shower or two, and much cooler temperatures with lows in the low 50s with upper 40s to the north.
TOMORROW: There could be some lingering light showers early tomorrow, especially for our southern communities, but through the day, drier air begins to settle in from the northwest, which will allow for a gradually clearing sky through the day from north to south. Tomorrow will be another unseasonably cool day for May with highs only in the mid to upper 60s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Look for sunshine in full supply Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a warming trend. The high Friday will be in the mid-70s, closer to 80° by Saturday afternoon with low and mid-80s for Sunday. Another wonderful weekend of weather for Alabama.
