Josh: Storms return Friday night, then colder

The Storm Prediction Center has the northern half of the state under an enhanced risk (30%) to experience severe storms with damaging wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour, large hail and even a few tornadoes.

By Saturday morning, the line of storms and the threat for strong to severe weather will be long gone. Keep in mind, a Enhanced Risk of severe weather is 3 out of 5 on the severe weather index. We'll refine that timing for the all-important Saturday forecast with many outdoor activities hanging in the balance throughout the Valley and Plains. We have a slight risk for areas west of a line from Fayette to Tuscaloosa to Thomaston to Citronelle. 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. Friday will be a near-perfect weather day for our state; expect a partly cloudy sky, with afternoon temperatures soaring into the upper 70s to lower 80s.

It was a mild and sunny Thursday afternoon for central and south Alabama, with just a few thin and wispy cirrus clouds this afternoon.

This line of storms should push through Acadiana between midnight and 8am Saturday morning. Saturday night looks chilly again with lows in the upper 30s to low 40s. Highs Friday will climb into the upper 70s to low 80a thanks to a breezy south wind. Some patchy frost is also possible early this morning as well.
