MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Happy Thursday or happy Friday eve. Today’s forecast headlines include scattered showers and storms continuing, warmer temperatures, and a summer-like Memorial Day weekend.
A stalled front sitting on the Gulf Coast will slowly lift north through the day as the upper low that’s been keeping it parked here will finally begin moving north. Keep the umbrella handy as we’ll there is a 1 in 3 chance that a shower or rumble of thunder finds you. The best chance for rain will be during the afternoon. There will be a little more sunshine, but there will likely be a good amount of cloud cover too. Temperatures will soar as a south wind develops. Highs will climb into the middle and upper 80s. With higher humidity, heat index values may easily reach the low 90s.
Most of the rain from today fades tonight, but a few stray showers can’t be ruled out. For most though it’s partly cloudy with lows near 70. Just look out for patchy fog in the overnight and early tomorrow.
Rain chances will drop a bit more for Friday and the first half of your Memorial Day Weekend. Highs will continue to warm with many locations coming close to 90. Rain chances will likely pick up again early next week.
