Forecasters say Alabama is facing the threat of severe weather over the weekend.

The National Weather Service says temperatures will reach near record levels across the state on Saturday as moist air flows north off the Gulf of Mexico. That will be followed by drier air moving in from the west, bringing a chance of strong storms.

Forecasters say there's a medium to high chance of severe storms beginning Saturday night, and there's a low to medium chance of isolated tornadoes through Sunday afternoon.
