The Central Alabama Forecast For The Next Seven Days

Sunday Morning, October 27th, 2019
Forecast Created At 10:30 PM On 10/26/2019.

NOT A BAD SUNDAY WITH NICE TEMPERATURES
Sunday will start off mainly cloudy across the area but some of those clouds will dissipate, leaving us partly cloudy by the end of the afternoon hours. We’ll be dry with highs in the lower to mid-70s.


FORECAST RAINFALL AMOUNTS THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY MORNING

Rainfall amounts across Central Alabama throughout the next seven days are forecast to be in the 1.5 to 3.5 inches with the heavier amounts in the northern parts of the area. Another good week to put a big dent in our drought situation.


THE START OF NEXT WEEK
Nice weather on Monday as we’ll have partly to mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Highs will be mild, topping out in the mid to upper 70s for most across the area.

The cold front that worked through the area on Saturday will actually start to retrograde back in our general direction on Tuesday and could bring a chance of showers mainly to the southeastern half of Central Alabama (south of the I-59 corridor). As of now, we’ll go with mostly cloudy skies and the possibility of a few showers south of the I-59 corridor. It will be dry north of the I-59 corridor. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. Rain chances will be in the 20-40% range from northwest to southeast south of I-59.

HUMP DAY & HALLOWEEN
Another cold front will be approaching the area from the west which will pull Gulf moisture up into Central Alabama out ahead of it on Wednesday. This will bring another good shot of beneficial rain to the area as we could see totals in the 1-2 inch range across the area. We also could see the potential of a few stronger storms on Wednesday as decent instability will be in place. Highs will be in the upper 60s to the upper 70s.

The cold front will finally work through the area on Halloween… Unfortunately, it looks like most of the rainfall will come during the afternoon and into the evening hours. Once again, there will be decent instability in place, so a few stronger storms will be possible ahead of the front. We could also see another 1/2 to 1 inch of rainfall across Central Alabama throughout the day. Highs will top out in the upper 60s to the upper 70s.

FRIDAY & THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND
Friday will be a much brighter and a much cooler day across Central Alabama. We’ll have plenty of sunshine and highs only in the upper 50s to the mid-60s.

Next weekend looks to be brilliant days as there will be plenty of sunshine and nice, fall-like temperatures on both days. Saturday’s highs look to be in the upper 50s to the mid-60s while falling back into the mid-50s to the lower 60s on Sunday.

THE TROPICS
As of 10:00 pm on Saturday night, Tropical Storm Pablo continues to make the sweeping left turn to the north and eventually to the northwest by Monday. Winds were at 65 MPH and is currently no threat to any landmass. A weakening trend will start on Sunday and the storm should become post-tropical by Monday morning. The rest of the Atlantic Basin is quiet for now.
