Alabama Skies: Changes in forecast for severe weather potential for next week

Published 11:58 pm Friday, November 17, 2023

We’ll begin the weekend with a gorgeous Saturday with cooler, dryer air. Although the northern half of the state will have some clouds early, the clouds will move out, leaving behind sunny skies statewide.

Sunday will be another gorgeous day before we transition into warmer, more humid weather at the beginning of the week. We’re still watching a strong cold front that will bring much cooler temps, but the Storm Prediction Center has moved the severe potential westward, mainly for Mississippi and Louisiana. Right now, the only part of Alabama will an organized threat of severe weather is along the Mississippi state line. We can still see some strong storms Monday night until Tuesday night, though.
