Forecaster: James Spann

DRY AIR RETURNS TO ALABAMA: The sky cleared across Alabama last night, and we expect sunshine in full supply today; we reach the mid to upper 70s this afternoon, followed by low to mid 80s tomorrow. In fact, tomorrow could be the warmest day so far this year for many Alabama communities with a partly sunny sky.

A surface front could bring a few showers into the state tomorrow night, however.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: That front will move into Central Alabama, stall, and dissipate over these three days. Bottom line is that we will continue to mention a chance of widely scattered showers Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but the rain will be light and spotty, and the sun should be out at times. And, the weather stays warm with highs up in the low to mid 80s. A nice summer preview.
