Tomorrow will start off with plenty of sunshine, but clouds will increase by the afternoon, we will remain dry, and it will be another very warm day with highs in the low 80s.

RAIN CHANCES RETURN: A cold front will move through the area on Wednesday and will bring a chance of showers and a few storms through the day, but thankfully no severe weather. Rain totals should be less than one-half inch, with higher amounts across southern portions of Alabama. Wednesday highs will be in the upper 70s.

COOLER END OF WEEK AND WEEKEND: Thursday and Friday will be cooler days with a mix of sun and clouds both days and highs in upper 60s, which are 5-10 degrees below average for this time of year. Late Friday night, a weak disturbance will bring the chance of showers back to Alabama and a few scattered showers are possible to start our Saturday, but most of the weekend will be dry.
