We begin our Thursday morning with mostly clear skies...temps in the 60s and light winds. We are expecting a lot of sunshine today...highs in the mid-80s...and southwest winds around 5 mph.
Tonight will likely be partly cloudy...lows near 65...and sound winds around 5 mph.
We will likely hold on to dry weather through much of Friday. We only see a slight chance of an isolated shower tomorrow. with highs again into the mid-80s under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.
FIRST ALERT: Our next best chance of rain and thunderstorms looks like it's going to come Saturday evening and into the early morning hours of Sunday. Northwest
Alabama could see the strongest winds with this system beginning later Saturday afternoon and into the early evening hours. This system looks to weaken as it moves eastward across our state Saturday night. We have a 70-percent chance of rain.
Most of the rain and thunderstorms should push through our area by 9am Sunday morning. Clouds are expected to linger through much of the day on Sunday with cooler temps..into the 60s.
By Monday the sunshine is back. Clear skies take us into midweek, with highs warming back into the 80s by Tuesday.
Have a great Thursday!
