Widespread Showers And Storms Through Wednesday
It’s a cloudy and gray start to the morning across central and south Alabama, with scattered light showers already ongoing. Temperatures are in the low to mid 70s as of 8AM, and they won’t warm up much today. However, we likely won’t see much sunlight either, with a generally cloudy sky. Showers and storms remain likely throughout the day, with thunderstorms more likely towards the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures struggle to reach 80°. Most of the rain tapers off tonight, but isolated showers are possible overnight. Temperatures stay on the warm/muggy side, with lows in the upper 60s.
Showers and storms appear widespread again on Wednesday, with an otherwise cloudy sky. That holds back temperatures again, with highs in the low to mid 80s. The chance for daytime showers and storms looks decent on Thursday and Friday also, but not as widespread. High temperatures should be warmer, with highs in the upper 80s.
Rain chances decrease this weekend. Models hint at a cold front swinging through Alabama sometime on Saturday. While “cold” fronts really don’t bring much cooler air this time of year, it could result in drier air across our area with much lower (if not zero) rain chances. Models might be overly aggressive with cooler temperatures at this time, with upper 80s more likely Saturday and beyond. Low temperatures might be a bit cooler, with mid and even lower 60s some nights through early next week.
June begins next Monday, and right now, it looks like we’ll begin the first summer month with abundant sunshine, virtually dry weather, and highs in the upper 80s through Tuesday.
