THIS AFTERNOON: A warm front continues to push across Alabama, and we have a big temperature spread at mid-afternoon.

The sky is mostly cloudy over the northern half of the state, and a few spotty showers are moving northeast. The warm, unstable air will finally push into the northeast counties of the state tonight, and winds will increase as a cold front approaches.

UNSETTLED PATTERN: The air has become unstable across Alabama thanks to a weak upper trough nearby, and that will bring an increase in the number of showers and storms statewide through the beginning of the weekend. Of course, there will be good breaks in the rain, but we expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms each day. Most, but not all of the rain will come from noon to midnight.
