Friday, May 17 Forecast Discussion

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma has upgraded us to a Slight Risk of severe weather this evening and overnight. Showers and storms are expected to develop and could become severe with all types of severe weather possible. I do not expect us to see much in the way of severe weather tonight as the greater risk is to our north, but a severe storm or two cannot be ruled out.

Things quiet down tomorrow as the upper level low moves east and high pressure returns from the south. We may see a stray shower or storm, especially north of I-20, especially in Alabama, but I expect most if not all of us to remain dry. Temperatures will begin to warm to their highest readings of the year with upper 80s through the rest of the next 7 days and a few 90s possible.

The absolute best chance for all of us to reach 90 looks to be on Monday, but the warm air will be around for Tuesday and Wednesday, so if we do not hit 90, we will still be 88 or 89. Rain looks to return on Thursday as a weakening cold front slides through the region.
