I've been spending some time on the forecast tonight and it looks like we'll see some scattered storms through at least 8pm. The greatest threat for storms will be south of I-20 later this evening and tonight. No severe storms are expected, but we could see a few isolated strong storms capable of heavy rain (over 1") and winds over 30mph. The greatest risk will be gusty winds. The storms are forming just south of a cool front. Here's a breakdown from the RPM model over the next few days.
This means you need to be prepared for at least a few showers and thunderstorms if you are planning on a high school football game tonight. The best chance of rain will be during the first quarter. The cool front should shift to our south Saturday with very little rain in the forecast. Low clouds will linger through at least 10am. For UAB fans, you will likely see a few scattered clouds, but no rain at the game. Temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Expect partly cloudy skies in Tuscaloosa for the Alabama game.
Sunday should be completely dry and slightly cooler with highs in the mid 80s. Expect partly sunny skies through the day and slightly lower humidity.
We'll keep you updated on Fox6 News.
