Alabama Skies: Rainy weather likely!

Published 10:16 pm Thursday, November 9, 2023

There are plenty of events scheduled the next couple days from prep football playoffs to Veterans Day celebrations, but it would be hard to find someone truly upset about the chance for a rainy weekend across Alabama. With the chances of rain much higher than thunderstorms, most of the football games could be a little soggy without the risk of too many lightning delays.

Some models are calling for a continuous slow rainfall while others aren’t as aggressive, showing some showers developing throughout the next several hours. Although it would take more than 10 inches of rain to get us out of the drought, even a decent rainfall amount would help get us in a better place.

The frontal boundary is expected to slow down or stall, so we will have rain chances for a few days.

North Alabama

Showers in the morning. High of 57 and breezy. Friday night, mostly cloudy with a few showers after midnight. Low of 49.

Central Alabama

Rain likely throughout the day. Breezy. High of 62. Cloudy overnight with more showers possible. Low of 53.

South Alabama

Showers with a high of 67. Showers continue Friday night with a low of 56.

Gulf Coast

Rain likely in the morning, then showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. High of 77. Cloudy in the evening with a few showers. Low of 62.
