Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Happy weekend Gulf Coast!

Our hot and dry pattern finally starts to break down this weekend. We are seeing showers and thunderstorms primarily in the northern half of our viewing area such as Clarke and Washington Counties. These could continue to pop up, but will dissipate as the sun sets. Until then, some storms could be strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours.

Rain coverage will likely increase a tad bit tomorrow and Monday ahead of a stronger cold front that will be approaching our region. Some storms today, tomorrow and Monday could be strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours. Highs tomorrow and Monday will be in the upper 80s.

After the cold front passes, Tuesday through the rest of the week will bring a cooler airmass, which will bring us more seasonable temperatures in the mid 80s with lows in the 60s. This is seasonable for this time of year.

At the beaches tomorrow and Monday there is a HIGH risk (red flags). Stay cautious and try to stay out of the water, especially tomorrow and Monday.

In the tropics, there are a couple of area of clouds and low pressure we are watching in the Atlantic. This has a low/medium chance of development but are not a threat to our area currently.
