What do you always hear us say? Upper level low, weatherman's woe? Well, we watched the upper trough over the Lower Mississippi Valley kink up into a closed low overnight. More rain developed overnight to the north of the upper low's track as it pushed across South Alabama, but it diminished during the pre-dawn hours. There could be light showers through the early morning over eastern Alabama, and more mainly light showers could develop this afternoon in areas south of I-59 and east of I-65. Clouds are still thick this morning in areas east of a line from Anniston to Montgomery, with broken partly sunny skies back to I-59 and I-65. Those clouds will work back to about I-65 during the day though. West of there, lots of sunshine will prevail all day. It may be late tonight before most of the cloudiness is gone across the state. Temperatures are starting off near 50F in most locations this morning and will rise into the 70s in areas that get more sunshine today, like Demopolis, Hamilton, Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. 60s to near 70F will be common to the east, where clouds will be thicker.
Morning clouds and lingering showers. Gradual clearing through the day, with scattered showers a threat over East Alabama.
Mostly sunny and warmer.
Very warm, partly sunny, with increasing clouds late in the day.
