Quiet September weather pattern continues through the weekend: Alabama Weather Blog

Sunny Afternoon: Temperatures will reach the 80s across Alabama this afternoon with a good amount of sunshine. There’s nothing on the radar, and tonight will be mostly clear with a nice low in the 55-65 degree range in most places.

Rest of the Week and Weekend: Dry air mass will remain in place, and most places will remain dry through the weekend with highs mostly in the 80s and lows mostly in the 60s. The coldest areas will be in the 50s.

We might consider mentioning a slight risk of rain on Thursday due to the passage of an overhead low, and on Sunday as a surface front approaches, but at the moment the risk of any single spot getting wet on those days is only 10 percent, and not really worth mentioning in the forecast.

NEXT WEEK: Global models now indicate the possibility of some scattered showers early in the week on Monday and Tuesday, but there is still no sign of any really significant impact, or major rain event during the week. Highs will continue into the 80s… Watch the video summary for maps, graphics and more details.
