Away from the storms, the sky is partly to mostly sunny with temperatures mostly in the low 90s… right at seasonal averages for mid-August.

A FEW AFTERNOON SHOWERS/STORMS: We do note a few isolated showers early this morning over the northwest corner of Alabama, but the rest of the state is rain-free as the day begins with temperatures around 70 degrees. Upper ridging builds over the region temporarily, and that should mean a decrease in the number of showers and thunderstorms both today and tomorrow; odds of any one spot getting wet both days are in the 20-30 percent range.
