Increasing clouds tonight with low temps in the upper 40s and lower 40s. There may be some patchy fog, locally dense, develop late tonight near the coast. At this time we don't think it will be widespread enough to warrant a Dense Fog Advisory, but we will continue to monitor.

INCREASING CLOUDINESS TODAY; SHOWERS RETURN THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY… Clouds will increase in coverage across the region on this Wednesday ahead of rain becoming possible at times tomorrow. High temperatures today will be in the mid- to upper-60s. Friday could feature numerous showers as an area of low pressure moves by just to our north. We also will be watching a system slated to move by on Monday that could feature a few thunderstorms. A few more Wednesday morning forecast notes are below.
SHOWERS POSSIBLE AT TIMES ON THURSDAY… Rain chances will be greater across inland communities of southwest Alabama on Thursday. Scattered showers will build in across the area late in the day and into the evening hours. High temperatures on Thursday will be in the upper-60s. Thunderstorms are expected to be few and far between, with most spots just having general rain at times.
RAIN AT TIMES ON FRIDAY… Scattered showers will peak in coverage on Friday, most likely in the morning hours. Similar to Thursday, the farther north you are in our local area, the greater your specific rain chance will be. High temps on Friday will again be in the mid-60s.
UNSETTLED, MILD WEEKEND… Rain chances remain LOW (but not zero!) for Saturday and Sunday. Our area will remain under the influence of an unsettled pattern that could squeeze out a few showers, especially late in the day on Sunday. Highs will be in the 60s this weekend with morning lows near 45 on Saturday morning and near 50 on Sunday morning.
RAIN & STORMS LIKELY ON MONDAY… Scattered showers and thunderstorms will once again increase in coverage on Monday as another area of low pressure and trailing cold front move across our region. There have been some model indications that a few stronger storms could be possible, at least under some scenarios. This is because of the potential for an area of slightly higher instability values that may develop on Sunday, primarily in the afternoon and evening hours. I will be closely monitoring model trends over the next few days concerning this potential. We’ll keep you posted about it in the RedZone Weather app.

MOSTLY SUNNY TODAY & WEDNESDAY; RAIN RETURNS LATER THIS WEEK… Beautiful weather is expected on this Tuesday across south Alabama and northwest Florida. High temperatures will peak in the upper-60s this afternoon. Cloud coverage will increase on Wednesday ahead of a few showers becoming possible on Thursday. Rain will also be possible Friday and into the weekend as our area enters into an extended wet pattern. The good news is, for now, we don’t see any signs of severe weather or winter weather issues anytime soon. A few more forecast details are below.
MILDER TEMPERATURES AHEAD… Last night and this morning were the last time we will see temperatures in the 30s for potentially quite some time. I see no model data that supports near freezing temperatures over the next 7-10 days. Highs today will rise into the mid- to upper-60s. There is a chance some spots tomorrow may hit the 70 degree mark. Cloud cover around our region on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will keep temperatures fairly stable with highs near 70 and lows in the 50s.
RAIN CHANCES RISE ON THURSDAY… Rain will increase in coverage across the area on Thursday, primarily in the afternoon and evening hours. Scattered showers will likely increase in number on Friday as a strengthening surface low pressure area (well to our north) and trailing cold front move eastward. Highs on Thursday will again be in the upper-60s and near 70.
SHOWERS LIKELY AT TIMES FRIDAY AND INTO THE WEEKEND… An unsettled pattern continues on Friday and into the weekend with rain being possible Friday and again late on Saturday into Sunday. We will need to keep the rain gear handy this weekend. No “all day washout” conditions are expected, but there could be scattered showers around at times.
