After a dry and comfortable spell, we'll gradually see moisture levels increase as the weekend approaches. First, the moisture source will come from the east. Far east Alabama will see dew points climb into the middle 60s this afternoon. That will mean scattered clouds and a 10% shower chance. Higher moisture equals higher instability.
A more pronounced easterly, moist flow sets up tomorrow and that means the chance shifts farther westward and increases slightly. There is a 20% chance for a passing shower or storm and anything that forms will be isolated in nature and heat driven. It looks dry as of now for football games.
This weekend we will be tracking a disturbance at mid-levels of the atmosphere that will slowly track northward. We'll be on the "lift" and "moist" side of the system which means higher rain chances. Sunday, the chance for rain is the highest at 50 percent which means scattered in nature.
I'll have the latest data to share with you at 12pm on Fox 6 regarding future rain chances!
