We will begin streaming live weather information after WAFF 48 News tonight at 10pm. The stream will be available on our weather and news apps. You can download them today. We will also provide this information on waff.com. We will break into programming as necessary tonight. The threat for tornadoes is low but we cannot rule out some lower end type tornadoes if the storms become severe.
The showers and storms will be on the way out early Friday afternoon with temperatures falling into the lower 70s with a west wind at 10-15 mph. You might need a jacket if you are out Friday night or early Saturday morning. Overnight lows will drop into the 40s. Saturday will be a nice day with highs in the middle to upper 60s.
More rain and storms will move in late Sunday afternoon and continue into Monday morning. Very heavy rain is likely with the weekend storm system. Right now we are monitoring the threat for some severe weather early Monday morning.
Stay tuned for the latest weather information.
