Happy Friday, friends. Showers and storms across the area will put a damper on your evening plans in some spots. But it will help to cool down the temperatures. 

Tomorrow, passing showers and storms. Highs in the upper 80s. Rain chance at 50 percent.

Then all eyes turn toward Sub-Tropical Storm Alberto.

Sunday, as the storm gets closer the daytime storms will be a bit fewer and further between as a shield of high clouds overtakes the area. Winds will gradually pick up during the day from the northeast at 10 to 20mph during the day, increasing to 20 to 30mph in the evening. Rain chances are going to be at 30 percent during the day and 60 percent at night. High temperatures will be in the 80s.

Monday, Alberto makes landfall somewhere between New Orleans and Destin. Rain is almost a guarantee. Highs will be in the 80s. Wind will be between 20 and 40mph with gusts as high as 60mph possible. Rain totals will be between 1" and 4" for the day.

Tuesday, the rain continues as Alberto meanders northward. Highs will be in the low 80s. The wind should calm down to a more manageable 10 to 20mph with gusts to 35mph. Rainfall totals will be between 1" and 3" for the day.

Things start to clear out on Wednesday. Highs back to around 90.
