The lingering showers across Alabama continue to wind down and will be done by later this evening. Most of the state remains dry today, but where it is raining, mainly south of Interstate 20, temperatures are in the 70s. Where it is not raining, we are seeing temperatures in the 80s.

The rain will finally end overnight with a clearing sky, expect lows in the upper 50s.

MARVELOUS MAY WEATHER: Tomorrow and Friday, we are forecasting rain-free weather with a mostly sunny sky and low humidity. Afternoon highs will be in the 80s, while nights will feature lows in the 50s and 60s. Enjoy, because these temperatures are below average for this time of year and is likely the last time we will see 50s until the fall.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The great weather continues for the long weekend; it will be mainly dry, but we will mention the chance of a few isolated showers all three days, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. Rain chances will be in around 20% these days. Expect a mostly sunny sky with highs in the 80s.

NEXT WEEK: Much of the week looks fairly quiet with no major weather systems impacting the Deep South. There will be the usual chance of widely scattered afternoon/evening showers or storms. Heat levels begin to rise, and by the end of the week afternoon highs will be close to 90°.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet in the Atlantic basin and no tropical cyclone development is expected over the next week. The official start of hurricane season is next week on June 1st.
