Spann said that a “warm front will be in the area and a few storms could produce gusty winds near the boundary.” Also, as this system approaches our area there is a relatively low risk for hail as well.

Today, statewide there is a variance in temperatures. Spann said that the highs will be in the “60s over North Alabama, but low 80s are likely again for the far southern counties of the state.”
