First Alert Forecast: Warmer & drier day ahead...
More Rain, Storms Likely After A Brief Lull (Source: WLBT)

Our morning rain has pushed south, and we’ve been left with much drier conditions and even some sunshine! High temperatures will reach the low 70s this afternoon and we should stay dry through the evening commute.

We’ll have another chance for showers and storms Friday as an additional disturbance moves overhead and an area of low pressure moves along the Gulf Coast... This will keep high temperatures in the mid 60s tomorrow afternoon and a few lingering showers will be possible into the start of our weekend!

Fortunately, those showers will be short-lived, and from midday Saturday through the rest of Sunday should be good to go for outdoor plans. We’ll see more clouds than sun, especially on Saturday, and high temperatures will only reach the upper 60s both afternoons.

Chilly mornings return by the second half of the 7-day forecast, and we’ll be waking up in the 40s by the start of next week, even as temperatures warm quickly into the 70s by the afternoon hours.
