MOSTLY CLOUDY W/ A FEW SHOWERS TODAY; RAIN & STORMS THANKSGIVING NIGHT… Mostly cloudy skies are expected across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Tuesday. A few sprinkles and areas of light rain may be possible throughout the day, particularly across south central Alabama and northwest Florida this evening. Rain amounts will generally be light and variable. There is a high chance MOST communities across the region don’t get any rain today. When most communities WILL get some rain, however, is on Thanksgiving Day Thursday into Friday as a cold front approaches our area from the west. High temperatures will be in the 60s today and over the next few days with morning lows in the 40s.
MOSTLY SUNNY WEDNESDAY… Clouds will clear out of our area to the east tonight and into the very early morning hours of Wednesday. I expect much of the day on Wednesday to be mostly sunny with highs likely to be in the low- to mid-60s. Dry conditions are expected Wednesday and into the very early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day on Thursday.
RAIN POSSIBLE THANKSGIVING DAY, PARTICULARLY IN P.M. HOURS… Scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms will become possible on Thanksgiving Day in the late morning and early afternoon hours. The overall chance of rain and thunderstorms will increase throughout the day as a cold front moves toward our area from the west. Right now, severe weather parameters remain quite low. At this point, I am not particularly concerned about a tornado risk. Could that change? Yes, but for now, parameters do not look supportive of tornadoes. Rain coverage will probably peak in the overnight hours of Thursday into the very early morning hours of Black Friday. If you have plans to get to stores early to shop, be aware of the high chance of rain and storms being around. High temperatures on Thanksgiving Day will be in the 70s.
LINGERING RAIN ON FRIDAY, FEW SHOWERS POSSIBLE SATURDAY… Showers will continue to be possible on Friday into Saturday, although rain chances Saturday are fairly low as the overall system responsible for the rain will be moving out to our east. High temperatures will drop back into the 60s with morning lows in the 40s this weekend.
TROPICS QUIET… The Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean are quiet with no new tropical storms expected to develop over the next 5 days. The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season will officially come to an end next Wednesday, November 30.
