RAIN TODAY; COOLER, DRIER WEEKEND AHEAD… Rain will continue at times on this Friday across south Alabama and northwest Florida as temperatures don’t move much at all. We’ll be stuck in the 60s throughout the day. There could be a few thunderstorms later today, especially near the northwest Florida beaches, but the overall chance of any severe weather is very low. Rain will linger into the evening hours before clearing out early Saturday morning. Skies will clear on Saturday late morning into the afternoon hours as a nice, cool weekend begins. Sunday morning will be the coldest morning in the next 7-10 days as most spots locally fall to around the freezing mark. Let’s look at your forecast details.
RAIN CLEARS OUT LATE TONIGHT INTO EARLY SATURDAY… Keep the rain gear close by today as rain is expected throughout the day into tonight. Rain will progressively clear out from west to east later this evening. I expect ALL of the rain to be gone from the local area by 9AM Saturday.
SUNNY, NICE SATURDAY AFTERNOON… Temperatures will be in the 50s for much of the day on Saturday. Most spots will reach the 59-61° range for afternoon highs. Skies will continue to clear and we will be mostly clear by Saturday night. The lack of cloud cover will allow temperatures to more quickly plunge into the 30s by midnight.
QUITE COLD SUNDAY MORNING… Overnight lows on Sunday morning will be in the 29-34° range, with the exact overnight low temperature value depending on where you are specifically. If you’re closer to the coast, you probably won’t get to the freezing mark. Inland communities, however, are more likely to have an hour or two at or below 32° on Sunday morning.
SUNNY SUNDAY AND MONDAY… I expect Sunday and Monday to be sunny, dry, and nice. Temperatures will peak in the low-60s each day.
NEXT RAIN CHANCE: TUESDAY… Our next chance of rain after the event today into tonight will happen on Tuesday of the upcoming week when scattered showers will return to our area. It is too early to know whether severe weather issues will be involved, but I suspect it will be a deal where we have meager to no instability with at least some shear involved. Very typical setup for winter across the Deep South. Sometimes, that can mean tornadoes and severe weather, but most times, just rain.
