Severe risk zone is a Level 2 out of 5 for Friday
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - We were cool and sunny waking up this morning, but we will feel more “spring-like” by this afternoon. We will see a mix of sun and clouds, with daytime highs maxing out in the lower-to-mid 70s.
Overnight, clouds will build and we will stay mild in the upper-50s and the lower-to-mid-60s.
Looking towards St. Patrick’s Day, rain chances ramp up Friday morning ahead of a cold front. The SPC has our area under a 2/5 risk zone (slight risk). This means we could see damaging straight-line winds, hail, heavy downpours, and possibly an isolated tornado. Our inland will see rain chances increase after sunrise. Mobile and Baldwin will see the rain chances on the rise after noon, and the Panhandle’s best timing will be after 3 p.m. Things will quiet down later in the evening, closer to 9 to 10 p.m.
Looking ahead to the weekend, temperatures will drop behind the front! We will see sunny skies, but very breezy winds. Daytime highs will be in the mid-to-upper 50s, well below average, and feeling even cooler with the wind chill.
Have a great day, and stay weather aware heading into tomorrow!
