Weekend Outlook: The cold front will get nudged southward on Saturday. This will bring central Alabama scattered showers all day. High temperatures will start to fall as we only get into the mid to upper 60s. The front will be along the coast on Sunday, and there will be a cut-off low moving across Texas. This will prevent us from clearing out. Instead, we will stay cloudy with spotty showers. It will turn colder with high temperatures in the upper 50s. More rain is expected on Monday with the cut-off low moving east.
