BREEZY & CHILLY TODAY WITH A FEW SHOWERS; NICE SATURDAY & SUNDAY… Windy conditions will continue on this Friday, perhaps not as significantly as yesterday however. Wind gusts of 15-25 mph will be possible at times. A few showers may happen today, specifically across inland areas of south Alabama. Thunderstorms and severe weather are not expected, however. High temperatures will only be in the low- to mid-60s in many spots across the region. Some locales, like Thomasville, Coffeeville, Beatrice, and Greenville may not get out of the upper-50s this afternoon as cool air continues to push into our area. The good news is the dreariness of today will give way to a nice weekend with plenty of sunshine. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be in the 70s with lows in the upper-40s. A few more Friday forecast notes are below.

FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FORECAST… Temperatures will be in the upper-50s in many spots tonight at 7PM as high school football kicks off across the region. Cloudy skies are expected to persist into the overnight hours. Some of the games could have some light rain/mist around. Temperatures will be in the mid-50s by the end of the games. Take that jacket tonight as chilly conditions are likely!

NEXT RAIN CHANCE: MIDWEEK… Showers and a few thunderstorms are expected to come back into our weather forecast by the middle part of the upcoming week. Showers and storms are expected on Thursday as another cold front slides by our region. For now, no imminent signs of a major severe weather event. Good news!

TROPICS REMAIN QUIET… No tropical storms are expected to form over the next 5 days in the Gulf of Mexico or in the Caribbean Sea. The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a system in the north Atlantic Ocean that will never be a threat to our local area. From NHC: “A non-tropical low pressure system producing gale-force winds is located a few hundred miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The low should continue moving eastward at about 15 mph through Friday, away from shore. The low is then expected to turn southeastward on Saturday toward slightly warmer waters, and it could acquire some subtropical characteristics over the weekend or early next week while over the central Atlantic.”
