Dry Saturday night, super soaker returns Sunday

Soak up the sun while it’s out, because Saturday will be the nicest day of the weekend, and possibly of the next week too. A slow moving storm system will pull a steady flow of moisture into Alabama as it approaches on Sunday. Scattered showers will begin to move in Sunday morning, then we’ll get periods of heavy rain throughout Sunday and Monday. The heaviest rainfall comes Sunday evening through early Monday morning, and in all, we could see a few spots getting more than 1” to 2” of total rainfall by midday Monday.

Showers slow to leave: The pattern developing for the first half of next week keeps a good chance of showers in the forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: mostly light rain.

Cloudy, occasionally wet weather means temperatures stay below average for this time of year (especially in the afternoons). Expect highs in the 60s and lows in the 50s through Wednesday. Thursday brings the only 0% chance of rain we see for next week, and then more showers are likely with a cold front on Friday.
