Forecast Discussion

The front that moved through here last Wednesday left a disturbance in Alabama. This disturbance along with a return flow of humidity from the south will continue to produce afternoon/evening showers and thundershowers through Wednesday. Temperatures remain warm.

The next front from the northwest arrives Friday. Expect an increase in areal and temporal coverage of showers and storms both Thursday and Friday.

Friday's front settles to our south. High pressure centered to our north delivers somewhat cooler air. An easterly flow keeps lots of clouds Saturday and Sunday. It's difficult to be definitive regarding showers next weekend, but I took the optimistic route--mostly AM showers Saturday and barely worth mentioning Sunday.
