Overcast now, but sunshine returns by Sunday

Post-Tropical Cyclone Nestor brought wet weather to the area, but it’s quickly pulling away from Alabama

Amanda: Saturday evening forecast update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Nestor has weakened into a Post-Tropical Cyclone; this system made landfall on St. Vincent Island in Florida (which is between Port St. Joe and Apalachicola) and thankfully all it brought to Alabama was some beneficial rain and gusty winds.

Locally, same areas didn’t see a drop of rain while others saw upwards of 1.5″ total. Whether you saw wet weather or not, everyone stayed cool thanks to an overcast sky and breezy conditions. By night, we will begin the process of drying out...

Sunday may start off with a few clouds, but sunshine looks to return and temperatures are running a bit warmer than normal... highs on either side of 80° are expected.

We look to end the weekend off on a quiet note, but our next weather maker is lingering off towards our north and west.

This time, we will be monitoring a cold front; it is likely going to move through northwestern portions of the state late Monday and will continue to slide through the state during the overnight before existing the area early Tuesday morning.

As of right now, the forecast call for a low-end threat for severe weather. This front may bring a small risk of damaging winds or a brief spin up tornado. We’re watching it, so check back for updates...
