Warmer weather will take us into the weekend. The humidity and the pollen count will be rising as well.
Overnight tonight it will be mostly cloudy as a south wind moves back across the area. Temperatures will drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s. Friday will be unseasonably warm and breezy with highs near 80. Late Friday afternoon a line of severe storms will develop well west of the Tennessee Valley. This line will track east overnight and begin to weaken over Mississippi. It will reach western Alabama around sunrise Saturday morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorms within the line will continue tracking east across North Alabama and Middle Tennessee through the Noon hour. Strong gusty winds up to 40 mph and locally heavy rain will be possible.
There will be a break in the rain for the afternoon before more storms develop later in the day. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with isolated damaging winds with the second round.
Sunday looks pretty quiet with highs in the middle to upper 70s. Another strong system will move in from the west on Monday. This could set up another round of strong to severe storms for use by Monday afternoon.
