The chance of some strong to severe is higher Thursday as this system moves across the state. While it does not look like a widespread severe weather event in Alabama, it does look like a few strong to severe storms may occur with damaging wind gusts and hail being the main hazards. The highest chance of rain, storms and severe weather is during the afternoon.

Conditions should dry out briefly Friday into early Saturday before another system arrives late Saturday and lingers into Sunday. It’s important to note that some models indicate a chance of a few showers lingering into Friday. For now we would continue leaning towards the drier side for Friday’s forecast.

The weekend system will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms from late Saturday through the day Sunday. Models are not in agreement on how exactly things will come together, so we are capping any rain chances at 50%. It seems as though Saturday night and Sunday is the favored window for highest rain coverage based on the latest guidance.

Highs will go from near near 80 degrees each day through Saturday to the lower and middle 70s starting Sunday. Upper 40s are looking likely as you wake up Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

Next week will start off dry and nice with no issues to be had. Both Monday and Tuesday should bring plenty of sunshine with cooler than normal temperatures in the 70s.
