MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Happy Friday! Today’s weather is once again picture-perfect for the Gulf Coast. We started this morning in the cool 50s and 60s, but temperatures will warm up well into the mid-80s this afternoon. Some of the hotter spots may reach closer to 90 degrees, but the humidity will remain low. If you are east of I-65 today, you may see an isolated shower, but they will likely be light. This dry pattern will continue through the holiday weekend, with mostly sunny skies!


Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80s this afternoon and then cool in the evening hours into the 70s. The mostly clear skies will make for a great evening to get outside and enjoy the refreshing air. Tonight, temperatures will drop into the low to mid-60s.


The dry pattern will continue throughout the holiday weekend, with temperatures slightly below average in the mid-80s. By Memorial Day, temperatures will rise to near 90 degrees, but rain chances will remain very low due to the slightly drier air in place.


Beach weather this weekend looks fantastic. The rip current risk is moderate for Friday but should drop into the weekend. As always, remember to take a look at the local beach flags and stay safe in the water. The UV index will be very high, so remember to wear sunscreen!
