All eyes are on the radar this afternoon as a cold front slowly approaches the area. We’ve noticed some storm development to our north and northeast over portions of Tennessee and Georgia. Some of these storms have been severe, with very large hailstones. A shower or storm can’t be ruled out across our area through the evening, with the possibility of large hail. A tightening pressure gradient over the state has also brought another increase in wind speeds.
You can really tell summer is approaching when the cold fronts start losing momentum. The approaching front will eventually stall to our north and become the focal point for isolated shower and storm development through tomorrow evening. The sky will remain partly to mostly cloudy, with highs in the 80s.
A wave of low pressure is expected to develop along the boundary over the weekend and this will force the front northward on Saturday and then southward again by Monday. This movement will set the stage for mostly sunny weather on Saturday, with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms back in the forecast by Monday. We don’t expect any huge changes, with highs remaining in the 80s and lows in the 60s. There will be a slight risk for severe weather closer to the main low pressure system and this should remain well north of Alabama.
