SATURDAY Update: Beautiful Today – Showers Return Sunday

Good Morning!  Our weekend begins in a very beautiful way today.  Sunshine, comfortable.   Nice Day.  An approaching front brings a risk of scattered showers Sunday afternoon, but minor.  Dry, cooler Monday.  Most of next week will be quiet and routine.  But, we do have our eyes on a late week, potentially significant/dynamic storm system, which will bring showers and thunderstorms back to Alabama.  This system needs to be monitored carefully for it’s future Severe Weather potential.  ‘Tis the season.
