Expect more rain through midday Sunday as the coastal low and cold front move across the Southeast U.S. High temperatures will be in the mid 50s.
Next Week Outlook: We will briefly dry out on Monday as an area of high pressure sits north of Alabama. It will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy and chilly with highs in the 50s. More rain arrives Tuesday afternoon with highs in the 50s. Rain and some storms will move across Alabama on Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. A few storms could be strong to possibly severe. Forecast models are showing this could be a high wind event for much of Alabama! We will have to watch out for them. SPC has already highlighted the southern half of Alabama in a Level 2/5 Slight Risk. There is some uncertainty as to whether the air mass can become unstable enough. Stay tuned for updates.
