THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND
Showers moved into the west and northwestern parts of the area before midnight last night and have moved across portions of Central Alabama so far this morning. Showers will continue to move west to east across the area for the rest of your Saturday with locations west of I-59 becoming dry by the evening hours. A chance of showers will linger across the east and southeastern parts of the area during the late-night and overnight hours. Highs will be in the lower 60s to the lower 70s across the area.
The remainder of the lingering shower activity should be out of the area before sunrise on Sunday, but another system will move in and bring rain and a few rumbles of thunder back into the mix for Sunday evening through the late night and overnight hours. Some rainfall could be heavy at times, but not enough to cause any flooding issues. Afternoon highs will be in the lower 60s to the lower 70s.
