Tracking more rain and storms over the next several days
Strong to severe storms look to move into the region late Friday into the day on Saturday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Clouds will be on the increase again tonight as our next weather maker starts to move into the region. Patchy fog will also be a possibility as we wake up on Thursday. Lows tonight will hover in the upper 30s to lower 40s region wide with calm winds.
Thursday we will see mostly cloudy skies with afternoon highs warming back into the upper 60s. Winds will be out off the east around 5 mph. A shower or storm will be possible during the afternoon Thursday lingering into the night. Lows Thursday night will hover near 60 degrees with winds out of the southeast around 5 mph.
Friday we will again track a few showers and storms as a major cold front starts to move into the state of Alabama. Highs on Friday will warm near 80 degrees with south winds around 10 mph and gusts as high as 20 mph. The winds remain gusty overnight Friday all ahead of the cold front we will be tracking. Lows will remain in the upper 60s under cloudy skies with a possible shower or storm during the overnight.
The cold front looks to arrive in central and south Alabama on Saturday. That will bring us a high chance for showers and storms to the area. While this system does not look like the classic severe weather producer we typically track during this time of the year, there does seem to be enough of a chance for a few strong to severe storms. Storms capable of producing damaging winds and a quick spin-up tornado.
Expect Saturday morning through midday and early afternoon to be stormy. Cloudy skies will prevail during this period and temperatures on Saturday will be in the middle to upper 70s. Behind the front, north winds will return, and temperatures will plummet. Lows Saturday will fall into the 30s with partly cloudy skies and a shower or two possible.
Calmer weather is back in the forecast for Sunday. Highs will be colder, in the upper 50s to lower 60s under sunny skies. Lows will again fall into the upper 30s under clear conditions.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week all look pleasant. Expect lots of sunshine in the afternoons early next week, with overnight periods remaining clear. Afternoon highs on Monday will be in the lower 60s. WE will be back into the upper 60s to lower 70s by Tuesday and Wednesday. Overnight lows next week will hover in the upper 30s to lower 40s for early to midweek, next week.
