REST OF THE DAY SATURDAY: It is going to continue to be sunny and dry for the remainder of this beautiful Saturday. With mostly sunny skies, temperatures will warm into the low to mid 80s this afternoon. Any clouds that are around today will disappear for the overnight; clear skies will allow temperatures to fall into the mid 60s. What a nice and comfortable way to start the last weekend of summer!!
SUNDAY FUNDAY: Expect similar conditions on Sunday with low rain chances returning Sunday evening. A cold front will begin approaching the region from the north on Sunday afternoon. For those of you wishing for some nice, wetting rains, it is going to be hard to come by this weekend. We hate to disappoint, but coverage looks like it will be rather low compared to other cold fronts that have recently passed through the state. We should see only isolated to scattered showers and storms possible along or ahead of the front. This fairly dry (but still potent) front will work into the area Sunday night, with the majority of the rain starting to fall during the overnight hours.
NEWS WORKWEEK, NEW SEASON: We will continue with isolated rain chances for the day on Monday. On Monday, we also will be saying hello to the new season, fall!! The Autumnal equinox occurs at 9:29 PM CDT. Although the seasons may change officially, we know here in Alabama there really isn’t much of a different to be had between the end of summer and the start of fall. This front we mentioned earlier should clear the area much quicker than over previous cold fronts… this will allow for a potential (small) cool down for midweek.
It should be an ideal last weekend of summer, so go out and enjoy it. :)
