Precipitation & Temperature Outlook...
Weak ridging aloft will prevail into the weekend...and this will keep rain chances on the low side for any one location. Only isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected through the weekend. Rain chances during the early part of next week will be highly dependent on what happens with the tropical disturbance currently located to the southeast of the Bahamas as it moves to the west-northwest toward Florida and possibly the eastern Gulf of Mexico.
The two week outlook...from August 30th through September 7th...calls for above normal temperatures and above normal precipitation chances transitioning to near normal precipitation chances.
The longer-range outlook for the remainder of September through November is for above normal temperatures and below normal chances of precipitation.
The latest seasonal drought outlook through November indicates that in general drought conditions are expected to persist across portions of Central Alabama...and possibly expand in coverage.
