We are tracking a major change to our weather. Highs will be near 90 degrees Wednesday afternoon but Saturday we might not make it out of the 60’s for afternoon highs.
A cold front will move across North Alabama and southern Tennessee early Friday morning. Our chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms will increase throughout the late afternoon and evening hours on Thursday.
The best chance for any rain Thursday afternoon will be across NW Alabama. A line of strong to severe storms will form along the cold front late Thursday evening near the Mississippi River. This line will track to the east overnight Thursday into Friday morning. Right now it looks like this line will weaken some before moving into Alabama. There remains the potential for some strong thunderstorms with isolated damaging wind gusts with this line early Friday morning. We will continue to monitor changes to the potential strength of the storms and the timing. This continues to be a developing storm system so keep checking back for the latest information.
The cold front will move quickly through the area Friday with the rain ending shortly after. It looks like the rain will be gone by the early afternoon hours on Friday. It will be windy behind the front with northwest winds at 15-25mph. Much cooler air will be moving in directly behind the front so expect it to feel a little chilly Friday evening and Saturday morning.
The weekend looks sunny and dry with highs in the upper 60s Saturday and in the lower to middle 70s on Sunday. Another system could move through on Monday and bring a few scattered showers with it.
Have a great night.
