Rain ends, clouds linger

Sunshine gradually returns Friday afternoon

Strong storms today? Threat is low - here's what we're watching

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A few leftover pockets of rain will exit Alabama by sunrise Friday. While the rain will end, clouds will hang tough for much of Friday in central Alabama. We could see some breaks in the clouds in the central counties by mid to late afternoon, but there are no guarantees. South of Montgomery, its a different story. We expect a mainly sunny day over the southern quarter of the state.

There will be a period of quiet weather across Alabama on Friday and Saturday. The humidity should come down a bit as well with slightly drier air filtering in. By Sunday and Monday, there will be enough moisture in the atmosphere to fuel at least a few isolated showers and storms. Those chances are only around 30%.

Temperatures will be in the upper 70s north and well into the 80s south on Friday. Everyone should make it into the lower 80s for Saturday. Mid-80s are expected Sunday and Monday with humidity levels coming up.

A strong fall cold front will push through Tuesday, sending daily highs back into the 70s Tuesday, Wednesday and beyond. Lows will easily drop into the 50s.
