The weak cold front that moved into Alabama on Thursday didn’t bring a lot of rain. The front did advance an area of much drier air into much of Alabama.
The dry air is very noticeable this morning across the north and central locations with dewpoints running in the low and mid 60’s.
The weather will be sunny all through the weekend with temperatures only a few degrees cooler than we’ve been experiencing.
This drier air will remain in place for the next couple of days as several weak disturbances slide through the southeast.
We will remain cutoff from the moisture for the most part as the main front remains along the Gulf Coast.
The exception to the dry air and low humidity will be along our southern most locations in south and southeast Alabama. These areas won’t see much relief from the humidity and can expect scattered showers and thunderstorms.
A return to higher heat levels across the area will return on Sunday and Monday into next week. We expect to remain in the drier airmass, so heat index values should remain below advisory criteria.
The better rain chances begin to work in on Wednesday…and continue through the end of next week.
