Good chance for showers and storms on Saturday


Showers and thunderstorms continue across parts of East Alabama at midafternoon, and new showers are forming over the western counties of the state as an upper trough moves in from the west. Drier weather will be moving in soon, but until we get there, a lot of us will have to dodge rain and storms. Winds are almost calm and lows are in the upper 40s except downtown, where it holds in the lower 50s. This means you can expect dreary conditions and some cool temps.

Saturday will start off cloudy but mainly dry. The last of the rain will end along the coast by late afternoon or evening.

Once all of this clears, Mother's Day on Sunday look sunny and dry for all of our area! We'll have a north wind this evening under 8 miles per hour with temperatures dipping to the mid 50s tonight. The mornings will be cool and the afternoons will be warm. The bulk of the rain comes Saturday night into Sunday morning. As we roll into Friday, expect some normal showers.


Next week brings the heat back into the area, where mid to upper 80s are likely with a mostly sunny sky. Expect mostly sunny skies during the afternoon with highs in the mid 70s. "One model has a total of less than 0.5" everywhere through the 8 day forecast while the other model has the eastern 2/3 of the viewing area with 2-3" so needless to say stay tuned. Winds remain light coming out of the east. Lows hold in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Today other than some high clouds early this morning especially southeast of the turnpike there will be plenty of sun with highs in the low-mid 70s.
