Central AL Forecast: Sun-filled Friday ahead of potentially severe weather on Saturday

We'll fall back into lower 70s by next Saturday. Chilly lows north around 48 and south around 50. Temperatures will kick off in the 50s this morning.

A potent cold front to our west brings showers and thunderstorms to the area for Sunday.

Here's the Deal: The northerly winds will calm down as high pressure moves over the Big Country.

A tranquil weather pattern will remain in place through the first half of the work/school week. The remainder of the state is under a slight risk with scattered severe storms possible. The American and European forecast models show thunderstorm chances returning on Friday to the area. Timing for the storms to arrive will be from 5pm-8pm for the Pee Dee, 8pm-10pm for the coast with clearing after Midnight.

Governor John Bel Edwards released the following statement following severe weather that passed through the state on Saturday, April 14. We'll keep an eye on things.

"It's become sort of a tradition this month to have severe weather Friday and a cool weekend", Huckaby said.

Sunrise: 7:36 a.m.

The strongest storms should roll in after 12AM.lingering through around 7AM as the cold front crosses. The most vulnerable areas will be prone to getting wet. For that reason, please heed all severe thunderstorm warnings with the same urgency as tornado warnings, since 60-70+ miles per hour wind gusts have the potential to cause as much tree and powerline damage as a EF0 to EF1 tornado.

Monday: Sunny. Wind: NE/S 5-15; gusty.

Temperatures will stay around the low to mid-80s, according to NWS. A few clouds here and there, but otherwise a mostly clear sky. Lows around 68. Wind S 10-20 miles per hour.

After the cold front, the weather will be much cooler Monday as highs will struggle to reach 70.
