Cold Friday Night; Sunshine Saturday; Storms Sunday

Friday morning was cloudy with a broken band of showers and storms moving northwest to southeast through our area. However, most of the rain ended by midday. Although, clouds lingered through the afternoon. Clouds gradually clear Friday night, and temperatures turn cooler. Lows range from the low to mid 40s. Saturday remains rain-free with a partly to mostly cloudy sky, and near-normal temperatures. Highs range from the upper 60s to low 70s.

Another round of rain and storms arrives Sunday. Unfortunately, this time, some of those storms could be strong to severe. The storm prediction center places a slight (level 2/5) severe risk across all of central and south Alabama. Straight-line wind gusts up to 60 mph and hail up to quarter (1″) size look like the main hazards. However, the tornado risk is non-zero, but low. We should all be weather aware, especially between noon and 9PM Sunday.

Storms depart Sunday night, and clouds at least partially clear through sunrise Monday. Temperatures turn cooler behind the storms too. High temperatures only reach the mid 60s Monday through Wednesday. Lows fall into the 40s each night, possibly 30s in some locations. Monday may remain partly to mostly cloudy, but Tuesday through Thursday look mainly sunny.

Temperatures trend warmer Thursday into Friday. Another weather system arrives late Friday, bringing more rain and perhaps storms through Alabama Friday, Friday night, and Saturday.
