We're getting ready for a wet weekend. I think we'll dodge most of the rain tonight
with only an increase in cloud cover.
Temperatures will remain mild this evening with overnight lows
eventually dipping into the mid 50s overnight.
Rain chances will be highest tomorrow morning in Northwest Alabama
including Marion County. The NAM model is showing a mostly dry morning.
I expect the rain to become more widespread during the afternoon and evening as an upper-level disturbance moves across the area. Fortunately, we will not experience severe weather with this system. We'll mainly see cloudy skies and off and on rain and thunderstorms. Highs Saturday will only reach the lower 70s. Heavier rain is expected Saturday night.
By Sunday, I think we'll see mainly dry skies during the morning with a good chance of rain and storms by the afternoon and evening. The NAM is again indicating the best chance of rain after 12pm.
Highs on Sunday will reach the lower 70s. I'm thinking a somewhat drier weather pattern early next week with an occasional shower or storm during the afternoon/evening.
