Interceptor Forecast

Drier and hotter weather for the weekend,

A frontal system is moving southward across the area, and is causing a few scattered showers and an isolated thundershower or two.  Most of the action is south of I-20 and continues to move slowly southward.  An exception to that is over Cleburne and Calhoun counties where there is a band of thundershowers north of I-20, but that shouldn't be the case much longer.  All the activity will either end or move south of the viewing area by 8 or 9 pm.  Somewhat drier air moves in for tomorrow and Saturday, and that will mean most areas will be rain free and there will be a fair amount of sunshine.  With the sunshine it will get pretty hot with highs of 91 or 92 tomorrow and 93 or 94 Saturday. A slight chance of showers will return over southern sections of central Alabama Sunday afternoon.

6pm update: Two bands of showers associated with the frontal system continue pressing southward. One now extends from central Randolph county through central and southern Clay county into Coosa county.  Another band has now passed mainly south of the viewing area and extends from northern Autauga county into Perry county and into southern Hale county.  Finally there is a little cluster of showers in southern Shelby county.  I expect all activity to be south of viewing area by 7:30 or so. The chance of rain from I-20 on north is essentially zero.

10pm update.  All of the showers are now gone and skies are already clear or are in the process of clearing. Temperatures are falling a little quicker than I expected in much of the area, so I am going to take tonight's forecast low down to 67 from 69. With temperature now too far above the dewpoints, and with clear skies and light winds, I expect patchy fog formation.
