A Drying Trend For The Weekend

An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

RADAR CHECK: A large mass of rain covers much of North/Central Alabama this afternoon…

There has been very little thunder over the northern half of the state as the air is cool and stable. Rain will continue into the evening hours, and will taper off late tonight from the west.

TOMORROW: We will still mention the chance of a few lingering showers or storms in scattered spots, but I sure get the idea much of the day will be dry. The sun will be out at times, and we warm into the low to mid 80s by afternoon. The sky should be generally fair tomorrow night.

SUNDAY/MONDAY: These two days look warm and dry. A partly sunny sky both days with a high up in the mid to upper 80s. The chance of a shower is not really zero, but the risk of any one spot getting wet is so small I think we can remove the chance from the forecast.

TUESDAY: A band of showers and storms will move into Alabama late Tuesday afternoon or Tuesday night; for now it doesn’t look like a severe weather threat, and the rain shouldn’t be too heavy. Temperatures should reach the low 80s Tuesday afternoon before the rain arrives.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: A nice surge of cool, dry air moves into the state. The sky becomes sunny during the day Wednesday, and we reach the cool 40s by early Thursday morning. The dry air stays in place through at least Friday of next week.

See the Weather Xtreme video for the maps, graphics, and details.

AT THE BEACH: A good chance of showers and thunderstorms tomorrow on the coast from Panama City over to Gulf Shores (but it won’t rain all day)… then about 4 to 6 hours of sunshine each day Sunday through Tuesday with just a few widely scattered showers or storms. Highs on the immediate coast will be in the upper 70s, with 80s inland. Sea water temperatures are mostly in the mid 70s.

WEATHER BRAINS: Don’t forget you can listen to our weekly 90 minute netcast anytime on the web, or on iTunes. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including our meteorologists here at ABC 33/40.

CONNECT: You can find me on all of the major social networks…
