BRILLIANT BUT COOL WEATHER FOR SATURDAY
Near maximum sunshine can be expected across Central Alabama for your Saturday as high pressure will be centered over the southwestern parts of the area, but temperatures will remain cool. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 50s across the area from northwest to southeast. A few clouds will start to roll in during the late-night and overnight hours, but we’ll remain dry. Lows will be in the lower to mid-30s.

WE STAY DRY ON SUNDAY, BUT CLOUDS RETURN
Sunday will start off with partly to mostly cloudy skies, with those increasing throughout the day. Unfortunately, a few showers may be possible before midnight in the northwestern parts of the area before becoming likely for nearly the entire area during the overnight hours. Highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.

A WET START TO THE WORK WEEK
Monday looks to be a wet day across the area as rain will be likely at times. Skies look to stay overcast, even if there is a break in the rain for any period of time. Highs will be in the lower 50s to the upper 60s. Much of Central Alabama will get a brief reprieve from the rain on Tuesday as skies will be partly to mostly sunny with the exception of the southeastern parts as showers look to remain possible through the day. Shower chances return during the overnight hours and through much of the day on Wednesday for the northern half of the area while the south looks to stay dry at this point. Tuesday’s highs will be in the 60s then dropping back into the upper 40s to the upper 50s on Wednesday.

DRY & COOL FOR THE END OF THE WORK WEEK
Thursday looks to be a cool day with skies becoming mostly sunny early. Highs will be in the mid-40s to the lower 50s. Not much change for your Friday with the exception of having near-maximum sunshine. Highs will be in the lower to mid-50s across the area.
