FEW SHOWERS POSSIBLE TODAY; MOSTLY CLOUDY & COOL… Mostly cloudy skies are likely across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Thursday. A few passing showers may be possible, although I expect rain amounts to remain light and fairly variable across the region. Thunderstorms are unlikely and severe weather is not expected at this time. High temperatures will be in the mid- to upper-60s today. Sunny skies are set to return to our forecast on Saturday into Sunday ahead of more sunshine early next week. I’ve got all of your Thursday morning forecast details below.
CLOUDS PERSIST INTO FRIDAY… Mostly cloudy skies will continue to persist into Friday as a frontal boundary continues to slide to the south. Highs on Friday will again be in the 60s ahead of overnight lows in the 40s this weekend.
FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL LIKELY TO BE DRY… Clearing skies late in the day on Friday suggest that rain chances remain very low, if not zero for everyone locally, for the start of the Friday night football games this evening across the region. Kickoff temperatures at 7PM will be in the upper-50s with low-50s likely by the 4th quarter at each of the games across the area. Grab the jackets and keep them handy tomorrow night!
SUNNY, COOL WEEKEND… Gorgeous weather conditions are expected on Saturday and on Sunday. High temperatures will be in the upper-60s each day with morning lows in the lower-40s. No rain is anticipated this weekend. Clear skies are expected all weekend long.
SUNNY START TO UPCOMING WEEK… Monday and Tuesday will be pleasant with mostly sunny skies each day. Temperatures will increase into the mid-70s each afternoon with overnight lows likely to be in the mid-40s.
NEXT RAIN CHANCE LATE WEDNESDAY… Our next real chance of rain happens late Wednesday into Thursday, one week from today, as a cold front approaches from the northwest. It is a bit too early for any specifics, but obviously we will need to monitor this system for any severe weather potential. We are now in our secondary severe weather season that lasts through December.
TROPICAL STORM WANDA IN ATLANTIC… Tropical Storm Wanda, well away from land, will remain over the open waters of the north-central Atlantic Ocean over the next several days. The storm is expected to dissipate this weekend.
GULF REMAINS QUIET… The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea remain quiet with no tropical storms expected to develop over the next several days. While late season tropical storms cannot completely be ruled out, there is a real chance we may be completely done with hurricane season locally. We’ll keep watching trends. Hurricane season officially ends Tuesday, November 30.
