Saturday is trending much drier as well with the latest forecast model runs, but we'll continue to have a chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm during the main heating of the day, after 1:00 pm. We'll have more clouds than sun with temperatures starting out in the upper 50s and topping out around 80 degrees. Winds will be out of the southeast to south at 2-7 MPH. Rain chances are less than 40%, but may be dropped even more with later updates if this trend continues.
Sunday is the day that is trending much better as well as the system that is expected to move in later in the day is now trending to move in later in the evening. I'm still going to keep a chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm throughout the afternoon as there will be plenty of instability available, but the main action will not arrive into the area until well after the completion of the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. If any storm does develop during the afternoon, it will be working in unstable air, so the possibility of a strong storm is not out of the question. Temperatures will start off in the lower 60s and climb into the lower 80s for the afternoon high. Winds will be out of the south-southeast to south at 5-10 MPH. Skies will be mostly cloudy but there will be some sun at times, and I'm putting the chance of rain at 40% for now.
I'll have radar up and running later this evening as we have storms moving in tonight, and it will stay up throughout the weekend.
