Friday July 25, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

DRIER AIR SLIPS INTO NORTH ALABAMA: The weather will be mostly rain-free over North Alabama today; the risk of a shower through tomorrow is only about one in ten, barely worth the mention in the forecast. Expect a good supply of hazy sunshine both days, and the high will be close to 90 degrees. A few showers or storms are possible over the southern counties of the state, but even there they should be widely scattered.

Sunday still looks mostly dry with a high in the low 90s, but a cold front could trigger a few showers or storms Sunday night over North Alabama.

NEXT WEEK: Showers and storms will end Monday morning, and cooler, drier, continental air will move into Alabama Tuesday and Wednesday.
