More rain chances on the way

A few showers are possible Friday, but better rain coverage arrives Friday night into Saturday

Timing Alabama's rain chances

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Clouds will be fairly thick across the state on Friday; a few breaks are possible at times, but the overall sky condition will lean hard towards cloudy. This will keep high temperatures down in the upper 60s and lower 70s. A few scattered pockets of rain will develop, but the rain should be spotty, light and brief.

As a wave of low pressure rides along the Gulf Coast Friday night and Saturday, we will see another good chance of rain and a few thunderstorms. This round will again favor the southern half of Central Alabama, but everyone should see at least some rain shower activity between 8 p.m. Friday and early Saturday afternoon.

Most of the rain will end early Saturday afternoon. That means we can’t rule out a few sprinkles early during A-Day at Auburn and Alabama, but the games will mostly be dry. We expect the Magic City Classic to be dry.

Despite dry weather for the second half of Saturday, clouds will hang tough, and that will help keep highs just a touch below the 70-degree mark.

The 70s quickly return, however. High temperatures will range from the lower to middle 70s Sunday and Monday, then jump to the middle to upper 70s Tuesday and Wednesday. Overnight lows will be pleasantly cool in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Sunshine also returns during this time period! Skies will range from mostly sunny to partly cloudy between Sunday and Wednesday with no chances for rain.
