FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Possible scattered storms with temperatures into the mid 80s

(WAFF) -

The forecast remains rather complex this weekend. Several weather disturbances will move overhead during the next 72 hours leading to periods of more widespread rain. 

The difficult part is timing out those individual disturbances. Bottom line, several rounds of storms are possible, but it won’t be raining the entire weekend. 

You may want to grab the jacket this morning before you head out the door; we’re starting the day about 5-10° cooler than we did yesterday. Temperatures are generally ranging from the lower 50s to near 60. We’ll see mostly sunny skies this morning, and those readings will warm quickly. 

Highs should make it into the mid 80s with increasing afternoon cloud cover. A cluster of storms may develop to our west and track into areas of northwestern Alabama by the late afternoon. 

Scattered storms remain possible, mainly west of I-65, through this evening. Any widespread, heavy rain should wrap up overnight. Lows won’t be as cool for Saturday morning; they’ll bottom out in the low/mid 60s.

You can expect mostly cloudy skies Saturday. An isolated shower/storm is possible through the day with higher chances arriving Saturday evening. It won’t be as warm as today, and highs should stay near 80. Scattered rain and storms remain possible on Sunday as well with highs staying in the upper 70s. 

We should see a little more sun on Monday, but isolated showers are still in the forecast. Heavier rain looks to move in by Monday night and continue into Tuesday. The cooler weather continues into the middle of next week. 

Highs should be in the upper 70s Monday, but should stay in the low/mid 70s Tuesday. Skies should begin to clear Wednesday with mostly sunny skies to finish out the week. Look for highs in the mid/upper 70s by the end of the week with lows running in the low-to-mid 50s.
