A few more fair-weather clouds have been added to the skies at mid-afternoon and temperatures have warmed a little more. Skies continue to be mainly clear across much of central Alabama, but we do have some clouds drifting into the northern parts of the state from a stalled front off to our north. Temperatures as of 2 p.m. were in the upper 70s to the lower 80s. Birmingham was at 81 degrees. Several locations were tied at 83 degrees as the warm spots, while Alexander City and Gadsden were tied as the cool spots at 77 degrees.
Temperatures will start heading in the other direction and will steadily fall into the lower to mid-70s by 7 p.m. and into the mid to upper 60s by the late local news. Skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy with overnight lows in the mid-50s to right around 60 degrees.
TUESDAY: Dry weather is expected throughout the day on Tuesday with warm temperatures. We’ll start off with partly cloudy skies during the morning, but by the afternoon we’ll have mainly clear skies. Afternoon highs will top out in the lower to mid-80s.
REST OF THE WEEK: There will be a small potential for a few showers over the extreme eastern and southeastern portions of central Alabama late Wednesday, then again during the afternoon and early evening Thursday for much of central Alabama. Showers will continue to be possible Friday and through much of the day Saturday, but chances look small. Sunday looks mostly dry, but a stray shower can’t be ruled out. Temperatures will stay in the lower to mid-80s through Thursday before stepping back into the 70s for Friday and the weekend.
