SUNSHINE RETURNS FOR TODAY & SATURDAY; RAIN RETURNS SUNDAY… Happy Valentine’s Day! We get a break from the rain today and on Saturday ahead of more showers becoming possible in the latter half of the weekend on Sunday. Clouds will continue to clear out to the east today, giving way to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. High temperatures will peak in the 58-61° range across the region. We get one more sunny day on Saturday with rebounding temperatures ahead of our next chance of showers as early as the late evening hours on Saturday. Next week looks increasingly unsettled with at least some chance of rain each day. Let’s look at your forecast details.
COLD NIGHT AHEAD… Tonight is set to be the coldest night out of the next 7 to 10 days. Overnight lows will be in the 33-36 degree range in most spots across south Alabama and northwest Florida. There won’t be many, if any clouds, to hinder temperatures dropping. This is why we’re expected to have temperatures near the freezing mark. There could be a few spots on the northern side of our region near Coffeeville, Thomasville, Fulton, Beatrice, Hybart, Forest Home, and Greenville that have a brief hour or two at the freezing mark (32°), but most spots will have an air temperature that remains just above freezing.
RAIN POSSIBLE LATE SATURDAY EVENING… Saturday will be nice, mostly sunny, and quite seasonal with high temperatures in the low-60s. Clouds will increase in coverage late in the day and there could be a few showers over west Alabama as early as the late evening hours of Saturday. Rain will become more plentiful across our region on Sunday into Monday.
SHOWERS POSSIBLE SUNDAY AND MONDAY… Our next chance of rain happens Sunday, Sunday night, and into Monday as a warm, Gulf wind ushers in more moisture into our region. High temperatures Sunday and Monday will be near 70 degrees. While neither Sunday or Monday will be an “all day washout” event, there will be scattered showers around.
ANOTHER ROUND OF STORMS POSSIBLE TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY… Thunderstorms will likely return to our area during the middle part of next week. If that sounds familiar, it’s because we have had a chance of storms midweek for the last 3 weeks! For now, severe weather parameters remain low and the Storm Prediction Center is not highlighting any areas in their long term convective outlook. Rain chances will likely remain elevated as we go into Thursday and Friday of the upcoming week.
