VETERANS DAY SHOWERS & STORMS; SUNNY SKIES FRIDAY P.M. INTO WEEKEND… Thank you to all of the men and women who have served our great nation! We appreciate your invaluable service! Showers and thunderstorms will be possible throughout the day and into the evening hours on this Thursday. No severe weather issues are expected across south Alabama and northwest Florida today, although a few rumbles of thunder will be possible. High temperatures will be in the mid-70s today. Cooler temperatures are on the way, however, as this weekend we are forecasting high temps to only be in the low-60s. A few more Thursday morning forecast details are below.
RAIN AMOUNTS TODAY BETWEEN 0.1″ AND 0.3″ IN MOST SPOTS… Rain amounts today into tonight will generally be fairly light and quite variable. Some spots may not get much rain at all, while there is a chance some communities will have upwards of a half inch of rainfall in total. Thunderstorms may be possible at times today, although we are not expecting widespread severe weather. The tornado risk today remains quite low, if not zero in most spots.
CLEARING SKIES LIKELY ON FRIDAY… Skies will begin to clear out from west to east on Friday as a cold front moves across our local area. Highs on Friday will be in the low-70s but cooler air will begin to rush into the region Friday night into Saturday. I expect the high school football playoff games across our local area to be dry with game time temperatures in the 50s for each of the games. Be sure to grab a jacket as a brisk wind out of the northwest will make the air temperature feel a touch cooler than what the thermometer actually says.
SUNNY THIS WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK… Sunny skies are expected Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. High temperatures will be in the low- to mid-60s on Saturday, with highs rising into the mid- to upper-60s by Tuesday. Overnight lows this weekend will be near 40 degrees. Some communities, especially farther inland near the U.S. Highway 84 corridor, will have temperatures in the upper-30s.
AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN ATLANTIC NORTHEAST OF BERMUDA… An area of low pressure has developed in the north-central Atlantic Ocean several hundred miles northeast of Bermuda. This system is and will be well away from land over the next few days. Regardless of if formal From the National Hurricane Center (NHC): A storm-force non-tropical area of low pressure located several hundred miles east-northeast of Bermuda is producing a large area of showers that extend near and to the north of its center along an associated frontal boundary. Although the shower activity has increased near the center today, the system has not acquired sufficient characteristics to be classified as a subtropical cyclone. There remains only a brief period through today for this system to become a subtropical storm before it reaches much cooler waters Friday morning. By this weekend, the system is expected to be absorbed by a larger non-tropical low.
