MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The main headline for Alabama is an area of low pressure that is moving through central Mississippi, while it is non-tropical, it looks just like a system we could see spinning in the Gulf of Mexico that had moved inland during hurricane season.

This system has a cold core, making it different from a traditional tropical system, as it continues to move north to northwestward into Mississippi (and then eventually into northern Alabama) it will send a couple bands of rain and storms our way.

Isolated to scattered showers will remain possible this evening and tonight with a few pockets of light rain and/or drizzle will probably continue into Friday as well. Things dry out for much of the region just after lunchtime tomorrow as the area of low pressure moves away.

It’s important to note that it will not rain the entire time between now and Friday afternoon. There will be ample dry time for most of us over the next 24 to 30 hours. There will likely be more dry time than anything else! Tomorrow will end up partly cloudy once the showers come to an end with highs in the middle 70s.

Saturday will likely be dry with temperatures in the lower 80s. Then comes the next chance of rain Saturday night into early Sunday. This system will bring scattered rain and thunderstorms with a very small risk of a strong to severe storm. Things will dry out by lunchtime Sunday as breezy conditions settle in to Central Alabama. Temperatures will stay in the 70s as slightly cooler air filters in from the northwest.

Next week looks quiet and nice with temperatures in the 70s to low 80s. There will be a pair of cool nights in the upper 40s to start next week. This may be the last time we get that chilly until the fall, so soak it up Monday morning and Tuesday morning!

The end of next week may feature another low-end rain and storm chance. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this as we get closer and models get a better grasp on what exactly will happen.
