NOT A BAD SATURDAY
High pressure will be stationed over the extreme southeastern parts of the state today that will allow us to have mostly sunny skies with decent temperatures. Highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.
A FEW STRONG STORMS ARE POSSIBLE ON SUNDAY
A frontal system will move into the western parts of the area starting as early as just before daybreak on Sunday morning and will move through the area and make its exit late on Sunday night. A warm front will move northward through the area out ahead of the system that will destabilize the atmosphere. SPC has a Marginal Risk up for locations along and south of a line from Moundville to Verbena to Clayton, where there is a small potential of isolated damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph and a brief tornado. Highs will be in the lower 60s to the lower 70s.
Skies will clear out and become sunny on Monday, with highs in the mid-40s to the upper 50s across the area. More sunshine on Tuesday and still rather cool with highs reaching the mid-40s to the mid-50s. Same story on Wednesday, with slight warmer temperatures, reaching the upper 40s to the mid-50s. And a little warmer on Thursday with a good bit of sunshine, as highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.
We have a little disagreement in the models for Friday. The GFS is keeping us dry with partly to mostly sunny skies. However, the European model has a few showers creeping into the area from the west starting around midday. We’ll have to watch and see over the next day or so to see if they come into better agreement. Highs will be in the mid-50s to the lower 60s.
