MORE RAIN THIS WEEKEND; ICE/MIX POSSIBLE TO OUR NORTHWEST MONDAY… This is probably the last thing most folks want to hear but we have more rounds of rain expected at times this weekend into early next week. Rain chances will remain elevated at times through at least Monday evening. We also will be closely watching trends this weekend as there is a chance parts of the Deep South (to our northwest) could have ice accumulation issues on Monday into Tuesday of the upcoming week.

RAIN AT TIMES TODAY INTO TONIGHT… Rain and perhaps a few rumbles of thunder will be possible today into the evening hours. Rain coverage will gradually increase through this evening before decreasing on Saturday morning. Rain could be heavy at times, but for now, the risk of widespread severe weather remains near zero.

COOL TEMPERATURES THIS WEEKEND… High temperatures likely won’t get out of the 50s in many spots across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Friday. There is a chance some spots in Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton counties could briefly have slightly higher temperatures (perhaps in the low-60s) this afternoon due to the placement of the now stalled cold front in place near our region. Overnight lows will be around 50 by daybreak on Saturday. Lows will drop into the 40s by Sunday morning.

MORE RAIN SATURDAY, SUNDAY, AND MONDAY… Again, forgive me for sounding like a broken record, but more rain will be possible Saturday, Sunday, and on Monday. There is a good chance the daytime hours on Monday may be drier ahead of another round of rain on Monday evening.

DRIER & COOLER TUESDAY… I am cautiously optimistic that Tuesday could be the driest day out of the next 7 days. Rain and precipitation will be well to our east at that point and we will have much cooler, drier air in place across the local area.

EVEN MORE RAIN FOR MIDWEEK… Unfortunately, it looks like the break from the rain on Tuesday will be fairly short-lived as we have another potential for rain in the area in the middle part of the upcoming week as an area of low pressure passes near or directly over our local area. This could be another big snow or ice accumulation event for areas to our northwest, although it remains too early to know specifics. For our local area, this event looks like rain with very little severe weather risk and no wintry precipitation.
