Breezy & warm Friday; Heavy rain Sunday

Weather Authority: Warmer today, wet and cooler for the weekend

Central AL Forecast: Nice, warm afternoons ahead of rain and storms this weekend

Highs Saturday will be in the low 50s.

Blizzard conditions are expected in northeast Nebraska so a winter storm watch is in effect late Friday night thru Saturday evening.

Saturday we'll have rain turning to snow as the storm system slowly pulls away and the wrap around cold air spills in. That will produce areas of Saturday morning fog. Tomorrow will see a south west wind that will lift the humidity even more and I suspect many will find tomorrow uncomfortably humid.

We're climbing into the 70s mid-morning and all of Friday afternoon will feature 70s with our warmest hour of the day right around that 80 mark.

The end of our incredible stretch of weather is here with one last pleasant forecast coming up for Thursday before we dip into a slightly more progressive pattern. The main weather issue for Friday will be strong gusty winds as the pressure gradient tightens with the approaching front.

Drier and cooler weather is expected next week, with highs struggling to hit 60.

Zero visibility is possible with thick fog expected to develop across the region Sunday morning.

Friday night: A 20 percent chance of rain before 11 p.m.

During the afternoon some of the rain could mix with sleet at times but we are not anticipating too much trouble from slippery roadways until after sunset. This weekend we'll see increasing clouds and a good chance for rain arriving by early Sunday. A few strong thunderstorms with damaging wind may also be embedded.
