High pressure is just to our east in Central Alabama and has been influencing our weather for the last couple of days. As it continues to work eastward, our winds will turn southerly overnight and start to bring in warmer and more humid air. We will see clouds starting to return tomorrow with temperatures reaching the upper 60s.
Temperatures climb into the 70s Friday through Sunday as the warm air continues to move northward, and with the warmer air, we could see scattered showers on Friday with a better chance at numerous showers for the first part of Saturday before a cold front approaches after sunset and will work through on Sunday morning.
This front will not have as much lift as previously thought as models have started to lift the best energy northward towards the Arkansas Delta, so while our severe threat is looking less, it still appears we will see storms on Sunday morning. As the cold front passes, a squall line will likely form to our west and track east through the viewing area. Rain will likely remain just behind the line before we start to exit the rain Sunday afternoon and the clouds thin through early Monday as temperatures drop back to more seasonal readings.
Next week looks dry through Christmas Day with temperatures in the 50s to near 60 for Christmas.
