As we have hit the midday hour across Central Alabama, clouds continue to hang tough mainly over the western half of the area, while bright sunshine is warming the rest of the area up nicely at this point. Temperatures are in the mid-50s to the lower 70s across the area. Birmingham was at 64 degrees. The cool spots were Talladega and Pell City at 54 degrees. Montgomery, Troy, and Auburn were tied as the warm spots at 70 degrees.
Clouds will continue to slowly erode away and we’ll end up with mostly clear skies across much of Central Alabama with a few clouds hanging around in the western parts of the area. If these clouds dissipate a little more rapidly, we should see highs in the upper 60s to the upper 70s across the area from northwest to southeast. We should have clouds moving back in during the late-night and overnight hours, with the potential of a shower or two over the southeastern parts of the area just before dawn. Lows will be in the lower 50s to the lower 60s.
Tuesday will be a mixed bag of weather as skies will be cloudy with locations along and north of the I-59 corridor remaining dry.

Pablo has degenerated into a post-tropical cyclone and is expected to quickly dissipate over the next couple of days. A non-tropical low is currently located a few hundred miles of the Azores and is moving southward. It will briefly move over warmer water and could possibly gain some tropical characteristics, but conditions will become unfavorable along with it moving back over colder water by the end of the workweek. No threat to any land and is only given a 20% chance of developing into a depression within the next five days.
