Isolated severe storm possible Saturday night

Clouds will be on the increase as we head throughout the overnight hours with temperatures dropping into the mid-50s by Saturday morning. Most of Saturday will be dry, but rain and storms will return Saturday night and into early-Sunday morning. A weakening squall line will be pushing through our area and as it does, it will bring with it a chance of an isolated severe storm in areas generally along and west of a line stretching from Aliceville, through DeKalb, Collinsville, Decatur, and Bay Springs. Damaging straight-lined winds will be the threat with this system. A tornado is unlikely in our area. I will also note that even though the line will be weakening as it moves on through, gusty winds between 40-50 mph will still be possible area-wide as storms move through. This could still knock down a few weak trees. The squall line looks to push through from west to east between 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., with the severe threat coming to an end by 11 p.m.

The rain will be long-gone by the time the sun rises on Sunday and we'll end up seeing mostly sunny skies throughout the day. Temperatures will be in the upper-60s around midnight and then drop into the low-50s by sunrise on Sunday. Temperatures will warm back up into the low-60s by Sunday afternoon. Monday morning will be a lot cooler with lows in the mid-30s. We'll see plenty of sunshine on our Monday, but high temperatures will struggle to even reach the 50 degree mark in spots.

Temperatures will drop to right on either side of 30 degrees by Tuesday morning, making it the coldest morning over the next seven days. We should all warm into the 50s by Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday will feature lots of sunshine with highs climbing back into the low-60s. Clouds will increase on Thursday as a disturbance approaches from our west. At this time we look to remain dry on Thursday with highs in the mid-60s. Rain chances return on Friday with severe weather looking unlikely at this time.
