As the back edge of the rain shield from this morning’s MCS continues to exit the state, we are drying out behind it with clouds starting to decrease in coverage. That trend should continue for the rest of your Saturday for most locations, but don’t be surprised if a few isolated to scattered showers form later in the day and into the evening and overnight as the cold front finally makes its way through Central Alabama. Highs will top out in the 70s with lows dipping into the mid-40s to the upper 50s.

Sunday will be a bright and sunny day across the area as troughing will start to work its way out of North/Central Alabama. It will be a nice and mild day with highs ranging from the lower 70s in the northwest to the upper 70s in the southeast.

Monday will be a much warmer day across North/Central Alabama as a flat linear flow sets up across the area. We’ll have plenty of sunshine with highs reaching the upper 70s to the lower 80s.

Tuesday will be a little cooler across parts of the area as we’ll have a weak impulse work across the area that may bring a very slight chance of a few isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs will be in the lower 70s to the lower 80s.

Wednesday will feature a little better chance of showers and thunderstorms mainly during the afternoon hours, but once again, a good many of us will stay dry. Skies will be mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 60s to the upper 70s.

Thursday looks to be a dry day across North/Central Alabama, but skies look to be partly cloudy. Highs will be in the upper 60s to the mid-70s.

Friday looks to be an almost exact copy of Thursday’s weather… a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 60s to the mid-70s.
