James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that the “weather will be unsettled across Alabama and the Deep South with occasional showers and a few thunderstorms on both days. But understand the weekend won't be a "washout", and the sun could peek out at times.”

Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Outlook

Saturday the SPC has “defined a "marginal risk" (level 1/5) over about the southern 2/3 of the state tomorrow (south of a line from Vernon to Birmingham to Ranburne); heavier storms could produce hail and gusty winds. No risk of a tornado,” said Spann.

Sunday the SPC notes that “there is a "slight risk" (level 2/5) defined for Southwest Alabama and a "marginal risk" (level 1/5) south of a line from Tuscaloosa to Clanton to Ranburne. The same situation; some hail is possible along with gusty winds. Rain amounts over the weekend will be in the 1-2 inch range for most communities,” said Spann.
