Numerous showers and storms will be ongoing this morning. Some of the storms could be strong with 30-40 mph winds and pea size hail. The threat for any severe weather remains low. Temperatures range from the upper 50s to the upper 60s with the cooler readings over northeastern AL. The showers and storms should diminish by midday. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s then with highs warming into the lower 70s. Southeast winds should be up around 10 mph. Into the afternoon, isolated showers/storms could pop up, but the activity won’t be as widespread as this morning. The evening should be relatively quiet with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures falling into the 60s.
We’ll start Friday around 60° with a fair amount of cloud cover. Scattered morning showers are possible, and we’re looking at isolated pop up storms for the afternoon. It should be warmer than today with highs back into the mid 70s. Look for a dry start to Saturday with lows in the lower 60s. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds for the afternoon with highs close to 80. Although the first half of Saturday will stay rain free, scattered storms should develop by the late afternoon. Some of those storms could be strong. Rain should be ongoing through the night and into Sunday. Numerous showers and a few t’storms can be expected Sunday as a cold front nears the Valley. Rain will be ending Monday morning. It will be a little cooler for the first half of the work week, but it should be dry. Highs will be in the lower 70s with lows dipping into the upper 40s.
