First Alert: Warm weather, isolated storms

Watching a weekend storm system

First Alert: Widely scattered rain Friday

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A warm night is ahead for the state, as southerly wind continues to push warmer air into Alabama. A few isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible at times, but the rain will be limited in coverage. Most stay dry.

Expect more of the same for Friday and most of Saturday - mainly dry weather, a few scattered showers and storms, and unseasonably warm temperatures. We’ll see high temperatures both Friday and Saturday skyrocket into the upper 70s and lower 80s!

A front slices through the state Saturday night into Sunday morning. While we can’t completely rule out some gusty wind within a few of the stronger storm cores, we believe the primary severe weather risk will stay northwest of us.

A weakening band of showers and storms will push into west Alabama after sunset Saturday evening, then push through the state, exiting southeast Alabama Sunday morning.

The rain ends early Sunday and temperatures turn noticeably cooler. High temperatures stay in the 60s Sunday and Monday, much cooler than we’ve been!
