Fall is coming back to Alabama, but when?

Starting on Saturday, cooler temperatures will return to Alabama.

The National Weather Service stated the weekend forecast "will be like fall."

But first, youll have to go through a little rain to get through it.

Highs on Saturday are expected to be in the mid-60s in north Alabama, the upper 60s to low 70s throughout central Alabama and the late 70's through the south Alabama coast.

Not only will it be cool, but it may also be breezy, with a fresh wind from the northwest bringing in drier air.

Sunday night will be particularly cold, with a chance to warm up before Sunday morning.

By Sunday morning, lows will be in the low to mid-40s in north Alabama, the mid- to upper 40s on the central coast of Alabama and the upper 50s throughout southern Alabama.

Starting on Friday in north Alabama, a cold front is expected to sweep through the state.

Some parts of the state may experience a few storms starting on Friday afternoon and continuing into Saturday morning.

This is Fridays severe weather forecast, and it highlights an area of marginal risk just clipping the northwest corner of the state: the Great Lakes.

Level 1 of 5 severe weather levels are considered a marginal risk, which means isolated severe storms will be possible.

Widespread severe weather isn't anticipated, but the front could bring a band of rain and tumultuous weather with it as it moves through the state.

The weather service expects temperatures to rise steadily through the week.

The next chance for rain may come late next week.
