WARMING TREND; STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE SATURDAY… We begin to transition to warmer temperatures on this Thursday ahead of a chance of strong to severe storms on Saturday as a front moves by. The Storm Prediction Center has introduced a low-end, Level 1 (out of 5) marginal risk valid for much of our local area valid for late Friday into Saturday. Most of the stronger storms will likely happen to our north/west, but there could be enough atmospheric instability in place to support a few stronger storms. After the rain and storms on Saturday, we’ll have a few days of unsettled weather with another burst of cold air likely to move in next week. Let’s talk details…

FEW SHOWERS POSSIBLE THIS EVENING IN WEST ALABAMA… Vast majority of us across south Alabama and northwest Florida will remain dry through Friday afternoon, however there is a chance of a few small showers forming across the extreme western parts of Alabama this evening. These will NOT be severe in any way. If showers do happen today, they will almost certainly occur in west Alabama’s Choctaw, Washington, Mobile, Clarke, and Marengo counties. Most of us across the region will remain dry. High temperatures across the region will be in the mid-60s by 2PM.

RAIN CHANCES INCREASE LATE FRIDAY… Cloud coverage and rain showers will increase across the area from west to east in the evening hours of Friday. If you have evening plans on Friday, be sure to keep the rain gear handy. You can always check the radar at redzoneweather.com/radar or by tapping the Radar tab in the RedZone Weather app.

FEW STRONG STORMS SATURDAY MORNING… Showers and thunderstorms will move from west to east across our local area likely during the morning hours of Saturday. While the greater dynamics and thermodynamics to support stronger/severe thunderstorms will likely set up to our north and west, the Storm Prediction Center has opted to include much of our area in their low-end, Level 1 (out of 5) marginal risk zone. This means that an isolated stronger storm will be possible. The main concern in these stronger storms locally will be a brief, damaging gust of wind. The tornado risk will be low, but not zero.

UNSETTLED FEW DAYS FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK… The front that will be causing all of the storms on Saturday will stall out near our local area and keep rain chances elevated through Monday into Tuesday of next week. This means temperatures will likely be well above our climatological norms for this time of year with highs in the 70s. Another cold front will move by on Tuesday, paving the way for drier, much cooler temperatures by Wednesday.
