Elevated Rain Chance Friday, Drier This Weekend

The unsettled weather pattern throughout the second week of August culminates with scattered to numerous showers and storms Friday afternoon and evening. Organized severe weather looks unlikely, but storms could be impactful nonetheless. Some produce torrential rain for at least a short time. They may also interfere with outdoor Friday evening activities. Ultimately, rain tapers off by midnight or so. The sky becomes partly cloudy with lows in the low 70s overnight.

Friday’s storms focus along a frontal boundary draped across central Alabama. The boundary drifts south slowly into far south Alabama this weekend. It could slightly lower humidity in locations north of the boundary. Much lower daytime rain chances are a more notable change this weekend. Isolated showers or storms favor locations south of highway 80/I-85 Saturday. Sunday looks dry outside of a brief, stray shower or storm.

Temperatures warm into the low 90s Saturday and Sunday afternoon, with a partly cloudy sky outside of rain. The rain chance remains minimal next Monday. Another front arrives in Alabama around the middle of the week, potentially moving south to the north Gulf coast late next week. The front increases daytime rain chances next Wednesday through Friday. High temperatures trend down from mid 90s Monday to low 90s Tuesday through Friday.
