Remainder of the week: Tomorrow the surface front will slowly move north of the region, allowing numerous showers and storm activity to be scattered along and ahead of it. At this point, instability is fairly low, so bad weather is unlikely. High again in the late 90’s. Mostly dry weather in much of central Alabama Wednesday through Friday. Southern Alabama will see more showers and storms along the collapse front. Highs are in the late 80’s to late 90’s. Unfortunately, there is a high chance of rain on Friday afternoon as the humidity will be higher and the outdoors will feel stickier.
