Picture perfect weather through Memorial Day
Each day will bring plenty of sun and comfortable temperatures and humidity
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Finally... the rain, the overcast sky, the humidity: it’s all gone! What is left is a dry atmosphere that brings us plenty of sunshine and comfortable warmth. Afternoon highs climbed into the upper 70s and low 80s today for much of Alabama. Consistency will be our friend as we head into the upcoming holiday weekend, one that is known to be the unofficial start to the summer season.
With the ample sunshine in the forecast there really isn’t much of a rain chance. Dry weather is likely all the way through the middle of next week; that means your Memorial Day holiday weekend plans will be without any issues from Mother Nature!
Temperatures will be very comfortable for this time of year... highs will be in the lower 80s through Memorial Day before warming into the middle and then the upper 80s as next week moves along.
Overnight temperatures will be delightful and fall firmly into the “give that air conditioning a rest” category. Most everyone in central and south Alabama will fall into the mid/upper 50s every night through the start of next week.
The humidity levels will be low all the way through early next week, so you really won’t even notice any sort of humid feel to the air!
One blip on the radar is something we’ve been watching over the last several days...
We are continuing to monitor a complex scenario that will evolve tomorrow and this weekend just to our east. An area of low pressure will move into South Carolina, sending rain and clouds westward across the Carolinas and Georgia.
The big question for Alabama is still determining just how far west the rain and clouds go. Most models keep the rain away from Alabama all weekend long. A 10% chance of rain is being left in the forecast for now to account for the outliers showing a shower making its way into the state Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
We will update you if the data starts to point towards a wetter forecast. As of right now we think it will be dry, but its close enough to mention. One thing that does look more likely is an increase in cloud coverage each day starting Sunday. It won’t be gray and overcast, but more of a partly cloudy sky is likely Sunday thru Wednesday.
