SUNNY & COOL TODAY; HEAVY RAIN SATURDAY EVENING… Showers and thunderstorms will return to south Alabama and northwest Florida on Saturday as an area of low pressure moves by. While the overall risk of severe weather will likely be low, the risk won’t be at zero due to high amounts of atmospheric shear in place. We certainly won’t be dealing with snow or wintry precipitation in our local area, either. This will be a good, soaking rain, but no snow is expected.
FLOMATON GAME FORECAST… Partly cloudy skies are expected at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, AL today as the Flomaton Hurricanes football team plays for the AHSAA 3A State Championship. Kickoff temperatures at 11AM will be around 46° with temps near 50° by the end of the game. We send the best of luck to our local team!
NO RAIN TODAY; ALL SUNSHINE & COOL… Mainly sunny skies are expected on this Thursday across the region. Most spots will peak this afternoon around 2PM in the mid-50s. No rain issues will happen today. Overnight lows tonight will again be in the 30s.
RAIN TO OUR NORTH ON FRIDAY… Cloud coverage will increase on Friday with rain chances being elevated to our north by Friday evening. Most events locally will be dry on Friday evening with rain chances being very low at that time (10% or less). Temperatures Friday evening will be in the 40s and 50s.
RAIN & STORMS ON SATURDAY… Numerous showers and potentially a few thunderstorms will happen on Saturday. The afternoon into the evening hours look to be the wettest across our area. This will likely be a cold rain for most, but there could be a few embedded thunderstorms, especially closer to the Alabama and northwest Florida beaches. I expect the Storm Prediction Center to introduce a Level 1 (out of 5) marginal risk for the local area for this event. We’ll keep you posted about the potential for a few strong storms.
RAINFALL PROJECTIONS… 2 to 3 inches of rainfall in total is expected areawide with this approaching system. Depending on where the most rainfall happens, there could be an isolated risk of flash flooding. This is something else we will need to monitor in the days ahead.
