SHOWERS & STORMS POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT AHEAD OF COOLER TEMPS SATURDAY… Here comes our first significant cold front of the season! Showers and thunderstorms will be possible tonight into Saturday morning as the frontal boundary slides by. I expect most, if not all, of the local high school football games tonight to be dry. I cannot completely rule out a shower or two, but dry conditions should persist until 10-11PM for most spots. Temperatures this afternoon will peak in the mid- to upper-80s ahead of much cooler temperatures set to happen on Saturday. A few more Friday morning forecast details are below.

RAIN CHANCES PEAK OVERNIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING… Showers and thunderstorms will move across our region from northwest to southeast in the overnight hours, extending into Saturday morning. The greatest chance of rain will happen in parts of west Alabama, specifically in parts of Washington, Clarke, Choctaw, Marengo, Monroe, and Wilcox counties. Rain chances will be lower, but not zero, to the south and east of those counties. While a rumble of thunder or two may be possible, widespread severe weather is not expected.

COOLER TEMPS TOMORROW INTO SUNDAY… Cooler, drier air will move into our region behind the advancing cold front. High temperatures tomorrow will vary quite a bit with most locales in northwest Florida peaking in the upper-70s. Some spots in west Alabama, however, won’t get out of the upper-60s. This means that MOST communities across the region will likely end up around 70-75° tomorrow afternoon. By Sunday morning, most locales will have overnight lows in the low-50s!

NICE CONDITIONS THROUGH TUESDAY… Dry, mild days with cool nights are ahead through Tuesday. Highs will be in the 70s Sunday through Tuesday with overnight lows in the 50s. Our next notable rain chance may set up by Wednesday of the upcoming week.

TROPICS QUIET… The Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea remain quiet with no tropical storms expected to form over the next several days. An area of disturbed weather located north of Puerto Rico in the western Atlantic Ocean has a very low (10% or less) chance of developing into a tropical storm as the system moves northeast over the next few days. That system is not expected to directly affect land areas.
