Increasing clouds this evening with a slight chance of seeing an isolated shower or t-storm. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s for much of the night with morning lows around 62. Just an isolated shower or t-storm will be possible Thursday afternoon with highs around 80 and a breezy southwest wind at 10-20 mph.
An outbreak of severe weather is forecast for areas to our west Thursday afternoon. The greatest risk for severe weather is going to be over Arkansas, Missouri, western Tennessee and northwest Mississippi. These storms will begin developing Thursday afternoon and track in our direction Thursday evening. As they move east they will weaken some.
There are signs that this system may slow down some and therefore the storms might not arrive in northwest Alabama until around 4am Friday morning. The storms will continue to track east through sunrise Friday morning and have the potential to produce very heavy rain, significant lightning and strong gusty winds. Most of the rain should be gone around the Noon hour unless the system slows down more. We will continue to monitor the threat for severe weather and keep you updated as the storms develop and head our way.
Cooler weather will move in behind the front. It will be quiet Saturday with highs in the middle to upper 60s.
Another system will begin to move into Texas early Sunday.
This will increase our cloud cover and bring in some rain by Sunday afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will become likely Sunday evening into Monday morning. Some of the storms overnight Sunday into Monday could become severe. We will continue to monitor the threat for severe weather with this system too. Keep checking back for changes and updates.
Have a great night.
