March-like weather to give way to a chance of showers, storms this weekend

Chilly night ahead

Rain & rumbles return to Alabama this weekend - any severe risk?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Tonight will likely be the coldest night until fall arrives! Lows will bottom out near 40° in many locations. It’s possible some in central Alabama see the mercury dip into the upper 30s, which could lead to areas of patchy frost. It wouldn’t hurt to bring in or cover up any sensitive plants or vegetation you may have outside.

The coldest night until fall in all likelihood occurs Wednesday night.

Dry weather and comfortable humidity continue for Thursday and Friday as highs head from the mid-70s to the lower 80s to end the workweek. Clouds will increase Friday ahead of a weak system that could bring a few showers and possibly a storm through the first half of Saturday. That system will be minor, and a healthy portion of the region may stay entirely dry.

The better chance of widespread rain -- and perhaps a storm or two -- comes later in the day on Sunday into the first half of Monday. Most of central and southern Alabama will get a good amount of rainfall with this storm system, but severe weather is not anticipated at this time.
