7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather has turned much warmer this afternoon, with most areas reaching the upper 80s. Dewpoints are rising, which will make for a muggy feel to the air tonight and over the weekend. We can expect a few rounds of rain and storms to impact portions of Alabama over the holiday weekend.

Saturday, a batch of storms will likely impact far north Alabama during the afternoon, mainly north of HWY 278. If you have outdoor plans tomorrow, keep an eye on that cluster of storms incase it makes it further south than expected. I’m calling for a few storms for areas mainly north of I-20 during the afternoon hours. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s on Saturday under a partly to mostly cloudy sky. Even for areas that could get a passing storm Saturday afternoon and night, it will not rain for hours and hours. There is little to no risk of any rain south of I-20 on Saturday.

Sunday, several rounds of storms will impact north Alabama, with highs in the upper 80s. It appears, the best chance of storms will remain north of HWY 278 over the Tennessee Valley on Sunday, but again, I can’t rule out a few storms making it as far south as I-20. The risk of a passing storms south of I-20 on Sunday is very low.

Monday, the front stalls across central Alabama, bringing a good chance of showers and storms. I do not expect an all day rain on Monday, but a few waves of showers and storms will be possible from time to time. Memorial Day outdoor plans may turn wet, so plan accordingly.

The front appears to stall along I-20 on Monday and Tuesday. This means we will need to maintain the risk of a few storms on Tuesday, especially south of I-20.
