Jill says expect periods of light rain

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - It's going to be tough to see much in the way of sunshine today as Gulf moisture continues to spread northward across the state. Showers continue to develop and lift northward. We'll see areas of light rain and drizzle impact central Alabama through this afternoon. I don't expect anything too intense, just nuisance light rain at times. Temperatures rise into the middle and upper 70s.

Tonight, the sky condition forecast for viewing the total eclipse of the Supermoon remains poor due to cloud cover. Next chance for viewing
will be in 2033. The chance for showers remains tonight at 40%, especially after midnight. Lows near 70° with muggy air in place.

On Monday, a tropical system in the Gulf has a 30% chance of developing into a tropical depression. This low will track north and then northeastward
with time early in the week and bring rounds of showers and storms. Storms will have the potential to produce heavy rainfall. Models still vary on the exact track and strength of this system. While strong storms can't be ruled out along the Gulf Coast, it's hard to say how far north that threat will extend. Some data suggests up to 1 inch of rainfall and other data shows much higher rainfall amounts exceeding 3 inches. Overall, plan on off and on showers and storms on Monday into Wednesday and periods of heavy rainfall. Highs in the upper 70s.

Much drier weather builds in to close out the week and it's going to feel very comfortable outside by Friday
