STILL WET AT TIMES: Scattered areas of rain and thunderstorms are sweeping through Alabama this afternoon/evening. The storms are producing gusty wind, frequent lightning and very heavy rain - remember, if you hear thunder, you are close enough to potentially be hit by lightning. Otherwise, we don't anticipate any damaging weather from these storms.
SHOWERS LINGER TOMORROW: The slow-moving system responsible for the rain will slowly move across Alabama tomorrow. As the front swings through the state, we'll see scattered areas of rain. So, we'll call tomorrow a mostly cloudy day with a decent coverage of scattered showers:
Highs will reach the 77-83° range.
COOLER, DRIER WEATHER: Showers will slowly depart Alabama tomorrow night and cooler air will push into Alabama. A northwest breeze pushes cooler air in here on Wednesday; afternoon highs will likely stay in the mid 70s with a noticeable drop in humidity. The cooler, drier air will last through the end of the work week, with highs in the 70s and lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s:
WEEKEND PREVIEW: It turns a touch warmer this weekend, but nothing unusual or uncomfortable. Highs Saturday and Sunday head for the low to mid 80s underneath a mostly sunny sky. Morning lows drop into the 50s and there's no risk of rain. Great weather for Mother's Day!
