An area of low pressure will move east along the northern Gulf of Mexico coast today. At the same time, and upper-level low will sweep across the Deep South.

However, a few showers will return during the evening and overnight as an upper-level wave/disturbance moves into Alabama. High temperatures will be a little cooler in the lower 60s.

Weekend Outlook: The weak upper-level wave/disturbance will continue to move over us on Saturday. It will make it partly cloudy with possibly a few sprinkles, but most of you will be dry. High temperatures will be in the lower 60s. Sunday will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny and dry with warmer high temperatures in the mid 60s. The first weekend of March is looking pretty good!\
