Jill: Patches of rain tonight, Monday afternoon

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Wrap around areas of rain and drizzle continues and will be ongoing especially south of I-20 through midnight and then tend to dissipate by morning. Travelers need to be mindful of areas of fog too!

Kids heading out to the bus stop should wear a rain coat and have an umbrella because showers are expected by the afternoon hours. It still looks like temperatures will be a little too warm in most places for rain to mix with or change to snow, but there may be a brief period where it does, especially north. If wet snow does fall it will melt immediately on contact and only create wet roads.

If you miss the sunshine, don’t worry because it will be back by Tuesday. A cold, high-pressure system is building in and that will create some frosty and below freezing starts both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Our next system starts taking shape across the Midwest and brings a 50 percent chance for rain on Thursday and an 80 percent chance by Friday. As of now, we think it will stay all liquid with this system.

Finally, we should have a rain free weekend and pleasant temperatures!
