The weekend will start with a mix of sun and clouds with morning lows around 37 degrees.
Expect to see more clouds Saturday afternoon with temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Rain chances will pick up after midnight, Saturday night, over northwest Alabama. Rain chances will climb slowly from west to east throughout the morning hours on Sunday.
Temperatures will fall into the upper 40s before noon west of I-65 with the rain. East of I-65 the temperatures will fall into the upper 40s later in the afternoon as the rain slowly moves in.
Next week will be an unsettled week of weather featuring more clouds and increased rain chances. We will have more moisture and warmer temperatures than we have had in recent days. A strong storm system will move in from the west late Tuesday evening. Ahead of this system expect the winds to pick up from the south at 10-20mph. Temperatures will warm into the upper 50s and lower 60s Tuesday afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will become likely by the late evening hours. At this point it looks like heavy rain and wind gusts up to 40mph will be the primary threats. Temperatures will fall back into the 40s behind this system for Wednesday afternoon.
Another system will move our way late next week. Expect increasing clouds with a chance of rain Friday. Temperatures will warm back into the 40s and 50s ahead of this system. It’s too far out to pinpoint the exact timing of the rain. If this system slows down the chance of rain could shift into Saturday or Sunday of next week. At this point in time any threat for snow will remain farther to the north across parts of the Midwest and Ohio Valley.
Have a great weekend.
