After a string of very cold nights, tonight will be much milder with lows near 50 degrees. Bring an umbrella if you're headed out tonight because scattered showers will likely move through the Pine Belt this evening into Saturday morning.
Saturday will be unseasonably warm with highs near 70 degrees as a warm front lifts across the area. This will be ideal conditions for showers and few thunderstorms throughout the day.
The chance for storms peaks Saturday night and into early Sunday morning. Strong to severe storms are possible but due to limited instability, strong wind gusts are the primary concern. Isolated tornadoes cannot be completely ruled out though, so check for updates periodically through the weekend.
Sunday will be cooler with highs in the mid 60s. Temperatures continue to drop as we start the work week with Monday afternoon bringing temperatures in the 40s.
