More Warmth With Late-Weekend Storms

More Clouds Than Sun Next Few Days

A blanket of cloud cover will prevent cold weather from entering the picture tonight, so waking up Friday morning will be pleasant than recent mornings.

Clouds will win out over the amount of sunshine over the next few days, but the origin of our air changes to the Gulf of Mexico.  That means it will be warmer and the humidity will be slowing building as we head into this weekend.

Shower activity will remain across northern Alabama and Georgia on Friday, so no need for an umbrella.   Most, if not all, of Saturday will feature dry weather as well.   Therefore, keep your outdoor plans.   Although the Severe Storms Prediction Center has issued a risk of severe storms close by Saturday night, WLTZ believes the risk of severe weather on Saturday and Saturday night will remain away from our area, closer to I-20.

Our latest cool front will likely stall to our north on Sunday.   The question is whether or not clouds and any showers will dampen the severe thunderstorm threat that day.   There are many questions left to be answered with this forecast for Sunday.   As for now, we are not out of the woods for severe storms later this weekend.  However, it is also not a slam dunk that we are poised for nasty weather as well.   Keep in mind though, even thunderstorms that produce wind gusts in the 40mph range can also be associated with isolated damage.

Mild weather should stick around for next week with heavier storms possible again toward the end of the week.   Stay tuned, stay safe, and remember to “spring forward” this weekend.
