In other words, our far northern communities have a slightly better chance to be on the receiving end of strong-to-severe thunderstorms on Friday night, with damaging winds topping out over 60 miles per hour still our main severe weather threat. Isolated tornadoes are possible, especially for areas in the Lowcountry.

Rain eases to showers overnight and Friday looks mainly dry through the Capital Region - a welcome break between systems.

Temperatures are upside down on Saturday - we'll begin the day in the mid to upper 60s, but as the front swings through, temperatures will drop into the 50s during the afternoon.

It was a mild and sunny Thursday afternoon for central and south Alabama, with just a few thin and wispy cirrus clouds this afternoon. Some of the strongest storms in this line could produce strong to damaging wind gusts and large hail.

Scattered areas of rain and perhaps a storm or two will linger into Saturday afternoon.

Partial clearing is in the cards for Sunday ahead of the next chance of rainfall arriving on Monday.

At the very least, it should be much windier and chillier by Saturday morning. Lows will warm from the low to mid 30s Saturday night to the upper 40s to low 50s by the middle of next week.

Don't expect temperatures to really jump on Saturday either. Frost also was in the forecast for Wednesday night of this week.

The National Weather Service was calling for cloudy skies and a high of around 76 Friday and a south wind of 10 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour.
