FOGGY START: We note there is a dense fog advisory early this morning for about the southern half of Alabama; that fog will dissipate by mid-morning. Otherwise, today will be another warm, dry day with a high in the 78-83 degree range this afternoon.
The day tomorrow will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds, but the sky becomes cloudy tomorrow night with a few showers possible ahead of a cold front.
FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND: The weather trends cooler and wetter. We expect periods of mostly light rain Friday through Sunday… the high Friday will be in the 60s over North Alabama, with 70s for the southern counties. Temperatures won’t get out of the 50s over the northern half of the state over the weekend; low to mid 60s are likely to the south.
This certainly won’t be a drought buster, and the weekend won’t be a total wash-out. Rain amounts Friday through Sunday will average around one half inch for most of Alabama, with isolated amounts to one inch. Not expecting any thunder, just occasional light rain.
NEXT WEEK: The weather will be dry Monday and Tuesday with highs mostly in the 60s and lows in the 40s. Then, models diverge with the American GFS keeping the Deep South dry, while the European global models begins in a chance of rain at times over the latter of of the week. We will trend toward the wetter solution in our forecast… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
