Weekend Outlook

An upper level short wave disturbance is currently moving eastward across Alabama.
Most of the activity has dissipated with this system.

Drier mid level air will spread quickly into Alabama this morning. We expect most areas to be mostly sunny by late morning.

The westerly surface winds behind the exiting system will bring in some cooler air into Alabama. Temperatures should top out in the upper 70’s north of I-20 this afternoon.

Mostly clear and cooler tonight as a surface high builds into the area.

An upper ridge will build over the southeast states this weekend…resulting in much warmer temperatures.

Increasing low level southerly flow Saturday night into Sunday will usher in 60+ dew points into the state on Sunday.

There is a slight chance of a thunderstorm across west Alabama Sunday afternoon, but most areas will remain rain free over the weekend.

A significant outbreak of severe weather is expected across a large portion of the central and eastern U.S. Sunday through Wednesday. The first round of severe weather that could impact Alabama is expected during the day Monday.
We will be posting extensive updates on this system through the weekend.
