The storm threat will continue to increase this evening as a warm front moves onshore. This warm front will serve as a focus for severe thunderstorms, some of which may produce damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. Temperatures will rise into the low 70s as the warm front passes, but will cool back into the 50s by Wednesday morning as the storm system leaves the area. Rain chances will continue, especially east of I-65 during the morning Wednesday but we should begin to dry out as early as Wednesday morning in Mobile and afternoon across northwest Florida.
The rest of the week looks quiet with temperatures in the 60s for highs and lows in the 30s and 40s. A strong cold front of Arctic origin will plunge into the area this weekend. This will bring temperatures down to freezing by Sunday morning with highs only in the 50s for Saturday afternoon. Next week, warmer weather returns with chances for showers and storms back in the forecast as early as next Tuesday, with temperatures near 70.
