Cooler weather is on the way, but showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast before we could see any relief from unseasonably warm temperatures. 

The US National Weather Service in Birmingham forecasts a chance for severe storms late Saturday night and early Sunday morning in northwest Alabama. Tuscaloosa, Pickens, Lamar, Marion, and Walker Counties are in a slight risk area where damaging winds of up to 60 miles an hour are possible along with a chance for tornadoes.
