Cooler Thursday, sunshine returns
Dry weather returns Thursday and the weekend looks fantastic!
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A few isolated showers are appearing on radar at times tonight, but most of us are staying dry. All rain that is falling is very light and spotty. Otherwise, it’s a cloudy night - Clouds will break apart Thursday, however!
With more sun tomorrow, highs will reach the low 70s in some places across Central and South Alabama. Others will stay in the 60s all day. These temperatures are around 15 degrees cooler than normal!
Then, good news - abundant sunshine will return just in time for the weekend! Skies will be mostly sunny on Friday and Saturday and partly cloudy on Sunday as high pressure takes control.
Temperatures will respond nicely as well, pushing into the upper 70s on Friday, the lower 80s on Saturday and the middle 80s on Sunday. The humidity will in the comfortable category each afternoon to make things even better.
Overnight lows will be cool to chilly for mid-May, though. Upper 40s will greet us Friday morning, with low 50s Saturday morning and mid-50s by Sunday morning.
Models show at least some low-end rain chances heading into next week, but nothing is suggestive of anything more than a 20% chance at this point. We’d expect Monday and Tuesday to be mainly dry with the mid-80s continuing.
Humidity levels will rise heading into next week as our wind direction turns southerly and brings in Gulf of Mexico air.
