A Few Clouds And Warm At Midday, Drier Air Is Moving In

| October 11, 2017 @ 12:36 pm

LOWER DEWPOINT VALUES ON THE WAY

Over Central Alabama at this point, we are still seeing dewpoint value well into the 70s, but the drier air is starting to move into the northwestern corner of the state. The drier air that is located over Arkansas at the moment will make it’s way into the state later this evening, and will make our highs tomorrow feel much more comfortable.


CURRENT CONDITIONS AT 12:15 PM IN CENTRAL ALABAMA

At this point in Central Alabama, we have a mix of sun and clouds overhead across the area. The cold front responsible for bringing us the drier air is now draped over the center of the state. Not seeing any returns on the radar at this point, and it really should be that way throughout the remainder of the afternoon hours. We may have one or two showers pop up with the maximum daytime heating just ahead of the front, but the chances are very low.

For the rest of the day we’ll have decreasing clouds from west to east while a very small chance of an isolated shower is possible out ahead of the cold front as it continues to move through the area. Dewpoints will begin to drop soon after the front passes your location. Afternoon highs will top out in the lower to mid-80s in the northwestern half to the mid-80s to the lower 90s in the southeastern half of the area. Overnight lows will be divided in the same manner, with mid-50s to lower 60s in the northwest, and mid-60s to the lower 70s in the southeast.


CONTINUED WARMTH ON THURSDAY BUT IT WILL BE MORE COMFORTABLE

Not too much to complain about for your Thursday as we’ll have lower dewpoint values ranging from the upper 50s to the lower 60s throughout Central Alabama, making the afternoon highs throughout the 80s feel more comfortable. The only complaint is that we’ll have a few clouds, but those will only block the sun’s rays for a few minutes at a time. Clear skies and cooler temperatures for tomorrow night and into the overnight hours, with lows dropping into the mid-50s to the mid-60s throughout the area.
