Another nice spring day is underway in central and south Alabama. Friday afternoon temperatures will climb into the low to mid 80°s. This will help to warm temperatures quickly with highs for the day in the mid to low 80s. This is a step higher than the past couple of storm systems that have come through our area, and indicated a more widespread severe weather threat. Due to the threat for severe storms, a weather alert day has been issued for Friday.
The area is under the SLIGHT RISK for severe weather, Saturday. Timing is still a big question with this system, with different models showing different outcomes.
Large hail would appear least likely at this point but we are still five days away, so our thinking right now is certainly subject to change.

The storms move out and the sky clears in time to start next work week. As another severe weather season approaches, Gov. Rick Snyder has declared April 8-14 as Severe Weather Awareness Week in MI.
RAIN: Rain amounts of 2 to 3 inches are likely, with isolated heavier amounts. The accuracy increases the closer you get to a weather event. It will send you push notifications for any watches and warnings for your locations. This will bring rounds of showers and storms to Kentucky from Saturday into Sunday. A powerful cold front will approach the area late in the weekend and depart early next week. Highs on Monday will still only make it into the upper 60°s, but we should be back into the 70°s by Tuesday, and many WAFB communities could ping 80° for Wednesday afternoon.
