RAIN AT TIMES TODAY; DRY WEEKEND; STORMS LIKELY LATE MONDAY EVENING… Rain will be possible throughout the day on this Friday. There could be a few thunderstorms, especially offshore and perhaps near the immediate beaches. High temperatures will be in the 58-61° range in most spots. See the detailed paragraph below about the parade forecast for tonight. We’ve got a dry weekend on tap with increasing temperatures. Our focus this weekend will increasingly shift to Monday when we could have a few strong to potentially severe storms. Let’s look at your forecast details.

SOME PARADES THIS EVENING COULD BE WET… Communities along and east of Interstate 65 have a 30-40% chance of rain from 5PM to 9PM this evening. If you’re west of Interstate 65, rain chances will be in the 10-30% chance range. We are NOT expecting widespread thunderstorms, but there could be downpours at times. I wish I could pinpoint what (if any) communities will have rain at a given time, but there is simply no skill in that at this point. We’ll call it about a 1 in 3 chance that your community is under one of the showers this evening if you’re east of I-65. Temperatures will be stuck in the 50s all day today and into the evening hours. Some spots may briefly crack the 60 degree mark.

DRIER WEEKEND AHEAD… Skies will begin to clear on Saturday morning as high temperatures rise into the mid-60s. No significant rain is expected on Saturday during the daytime hours. Same thing on Sunday, meaning we should be dry. High temperatures on Sunday will be in the low-70s.

STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE MONDAY IN P.M. HOURS… Monday could feature strong to severe thunderstorms, especially for our friends in northwest Alabama and north Mississippi. The risk for our local area will probably be more marginal in nature, but there still could be a few strong storms locally over west Alabama. The Storm Prediction Center has opted to include parts of west Alabama and the northern half of Mississippi in their Level 2 (out of 5) slight risk for severe weather valid Monday into early Tuesday morning. The Level 1 marginal risk will likely be in place for much of south Alabama. There is a chance that there could be a few tornadoes with this event, so this is one we will need to monitor carefully. I will have updates in the days ahead. Please check back with me tomorrow and this weekend for updates!
