RAIN LIKELY AT TIMES TODAY; DRIER DAYS AHEAD… Rain is expected at times on this Saturday, especially across inland communities of south Alabama and northwest Florida. The greatest rain chance will happen this afternoon into the evening hours. There is basically ZERO severe weather risk associated with this weather system for our local area since atmospheric instability values will be near or at zero across the region. Thunder and lightning will be limited too. I expect most areas to just have passing showers. High temperatures today will be around the 60 degree mark.
SHOWERS POSSIBLE TONIGHT INTO EARLY SUNDAY… Rain will move out later this evening from west to east. Some of the showers may still be happening after midnight into the very early morning hours of Sunday, especially across our eastern counties (Butler, Covington, and Okaloosa). The good news is rain should be gone by 6AM on Sunday and we will have much drier conditions in place after sunrise on Sunday. Overnight lows will likely be in the 50s due to all of the cloud cover.
SUNNY, COLD WEEK UPCOMING… Sunshine should return midday on Sunday as high temperatures reach the 60 degree mark. Monday is set to be quite a chilly day as high pressure builds in from the west. Temperatures on Monday afternoon will peak only around 53° despite full sunshine. A slow warming trend will kick off on Tuesday and by the end of the week, we could have highs approaching 70.
