Eric: One last warm day

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - It's been quite a run with warm air taking hold of Alabama's weather. If you're a fan, today is another good day for you. If you're waiting on a little cool air for some relief, tomorrow is right up your alley...

TODAY: Expect highs to soar into the lower 80s this afternoon with mostly cloudy skies. There will be a few showers on radar from time to time, but overall coverage will remain rather limited. Much of the day is spent dry.

TONIGHT: Our forecast becomes more complicated into the overnight hours. After midnight, a line of showers and thunderstorms will be darting southward through the region. This line is likely to produce severe weather issues across north Alabama but is expected to be in a weakening phase as it enters our part of the state.

It's not impossible segments of this line still have enough bite to warrant a marginal severe weather risk. The threat there would be damaging winds. This does not appear to be a tornado issue. Regardless, any lightning along the line will result in an early wake up call in the morning.

LOOKING AHEAD: We gradually dry out later Wednesday and stay quiet Thursday. Another active period will arrive into the weekend.
