Showers Coming in Tonight but Clear Skies Expected This Weekend
A few showers will pass through the area during the pre-dawn hours but no risk of severe weather.
James Spann reports on his Alabama Weather Blog,
There is no risk of severe weather, I don’t expect any thunder, and rain amounts will be light, under 1/4 inch.
The sky will become mostly sunny tomorrow with a high in the upper 60s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Sunny days, clear cold nights on these three days. We project lows between 30 and 34 degrees for most communities across North/Central Alabama early Saturday and Sunday morning with frost likely, and a freeze for colder spots. Some valley locations will reach the 20s. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 50s and low 60s.
NEXT WEEK: The weather stays dry Monday, but rain and storms are likely Tuesday and Wednesday with a dynamic storm system approaching from the west. Instability values look very low, which will limit any severe weather threat, but flooding is a possibility with rain amounts in the 2-3 inch range on these two days. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
