First Alert Forecast: Drying out briefly ahead of Sunday storm chances...
Rain Chances Taper Through Friday; Drier Saturday Ahead of Storms Sunday (Source: WLBT)

Our front has made its way towards the Gulf of Mexico, and showers have come to an end as we wrap up the work week! Lows tonight will fall back into the upper 50s before lifting back into the lower 80s by Saturday afternoon. Partly to variably cloudy skies are in the forecast for our Saturday & a few showers will be possible, especially late.

By Sunday, a strong low pressure system will be moving our direction out of the southwest & will usher in our next chance for showers and storms. Highs will only top out in the upper 70s as a result & strong-severe storms do look possible area-wide at this time! Damaging wind gusts will be the main concern, but large hail and a few tornadoes will also be possible. Be sure to stay tuned for frequent timing/strength updates as we get closer.

Temperatures will recover to the mid-upper 80s quickly by the start of next week with a few showers and storms possible Monday. Yet another system will work its way into the region mid-week & will usher in additional showers and storms Tuesday-Wednesday. Some of those could also be on the stronger side. More seasonable temperatures will work in for the second half of the work week behind our cold front & a few lingering showers will be possible in this time.
