As expected, we're moving through another bright and very warm day to close out the workweek. Highs across the state are in the 80s across the board. Some southern locations like Dothan and Andalusia are near 90 degrees. Rain is still in our forecast this weekend, but the latest trends have shown a drier outlook, which is very good news for all of the events going on this weekend.
Skies will remain mostly clear this evening and tonight. Our southerly winds will continue allowing dew points to be close to overnight low in the lower 60s. This opens the door to the possibility of some patchy fog through early Saturday morning.
Saturday will be an interesting day. Temperatures will be similar to what we dealt with through the workweek, with highs in the mid 80s. But, you'll notice more clouds above and by the afternoon some we'll deal with rain. Now by no means are we looking at a washout of our Saturday afternoon. Just expect a broken line of showers and a few storms passing west to east through the back-half of our day.
Sunday is trending dry, so much so we have cut our rain chances down to 10%. We'll have a good mix of clouds and sun early, but by the afternoon most will likely see mostly sunny skies.
After the weekend we'll look to have a mostly dry and sunny setting. Temperatures will range from the low to mid 80s for afternoon highs each day next week. With warm temperatures and some available moisture we cannot rule out "pop-up" afternoon showers due to daytime heating. So that's the reason for the small 10% rain chance each day.
