Tracking a cluster of showers and storms impacting parts of east Alabama on this Friday afternoon. Additional pop ups can't be ruled out westward but we are not expecting the kind of coverage of storms like the past couple of days.
Definitely bring a chair to sit on if you are going to Free Friday Flicks this evening due to an already saturated ground. Have an umbrella with you just in case a shower passes by.
The driest weather this weekend will be during the morning hours. Instability showers and storms will once again form on Saturday, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. If you are going to an event, bring an umbrella or poncho.
On Sunday, an upper level feature arrives which will increase lift in the atmosphere and cause more numerous showers and storms to develop. A strong or severe storm or two is possible on Sunday afternoon and evening. Gusty wind and hail producers can't be ruled out. Heavy rainfall and frequent lightning will be the primary threats. Localized flooding is possible.
The long range pattern looks unsettled as an upper level low pays us a several day visit. We'll be on the eastern side of the low which means we are on the "lift" side of the system and will see daily chances for showers and storms. A moist flow will continue which means added instability in the atmosphere and that sticky feel staying around.
Have a good weekend and good luck dodging rain and storms,
