SHOWERS & STORMS POSSIBLE AT TIMES TODAY; WARM WEEKEND… Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Friday. High temperatures will be quite warm for a late February day with most spots reaching the upper-70s by 2PM. Some locales might even make a run at the 80 degree mark today and tomorrow! The weekend could feature a few showers around but clearly much of the rain this weekend will be happening to our north across parts of northern Mississippi and Alabama. No severe weather is expected locally today or tomorrow.

LEVEL 1 (OUT OF 5) RISK FOR NORTH ALABAMA TODAY… The Storm Prediction Center has included parts of north Alabama, southern Tennessee, and the northern half of Mississippi in their low-end, Level 1 (out of 5) severe weather risk zone valid for today. This risk is driven primarily due to the potential of a few areas of gusty winds in the stronger storms. Small hail may also be a concern. The overall tornado risk remains quite low, even in areas included in the severe weather risk zone. The Level 1 (out of 5) risk includes places like Birmingham, Huntsville, Florence, Muscle Shoals, Decatur, Gadsden, Tuscaloosa, Fayette, Jasper, Hamilton, Double Springs, Cullman, Russellville, and surrounding areas. No tornado risk locally today in south Alabama or northwest Florida.

LOW RAIN CHANCES SATURDAY; TEMPS NEAR 80… A few showers will be possible this weekend, mainly on Sunday. High temperatures will remain well above our seasonal norms with most spots in the upper-70s and near the 80 degree mark on Saturday. I will have radar updates posted on an as needed basis this weekend in the RedZone Weather app.

RAIN & STORMS POSSIBLE MONDAY… The wettest day out of the next 7 days looks to be Monday when a frontal boundary will slide through our region. New rain amounts of 0.25″ to 1″ will be possible Monday. Severe weather seems unlikely, although it isn’t completely out of the realm of possibilities that we see a low-end severe weather risk introduced for at least part of the area valid for Monday. This is something we will monitor this weekend and bring you the latest in the RedZone Weather app.

MILD PATTERN WITH SHOWERS NEXT WEEK… Signs of a mild, fairly benign weather pattern continue into the middle part of the upcoming week. Temperatures will likely be above our climatological norms for much of the week with highs in or near the 70s. There could be a few showers and storms Tuesday into Wednesday.

APP… If you haven’t already, be sure to download the free RedZone Weather app to keep up with all the latest information on the world of weather in south Alabama and northwest Florida. redzoneweather.com/app is the link for the free download.
