Hot Afternoons; Showers Scarce Through Sunday

| August 7, 2020 @ 5:28 am

QUIET PATTERN CONTINUES: The weather won’t change too much across Alabama through the weekend. Precipitable water values will drop a bit, meaning showers will be pretty hard to find each afternoon (although the chance of rain is not zero). Look for mostly sunny days, fair nights, and highs will be in the low 90s today, and between 92 and 95 over the weekend. Odds of any one spot getting wet today are 10 percent, and closer to 5 percent tomorrow and Sunday.
