BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We began the day with our warmest overnight temps of the week so far 50s to 60-degree readings were felt across north central Alabama. Today we could see a little bit more cloud cover move across our area with highs topping out in the low to mid-80s this afternoon. Expect variably cloudy skies today with highs in the low to mid-80s.
Temps should remain in the 70s to low 80s through the weekend, with only a slight chance of rain by Sunday.
We are still awaiting the progression of a wet weather system off to our west. This system could combine with the remnants of the strongest eastern north Pacific hurricane on record. While this hurricane could cause catastrophic damage when it makes landfall into southwestern Mexico later today, we will only see potential rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Patricia. It looks like the remnants of Patricia will likely combine forces with a shortwave trough in the southwest. Rain and thunderstorms will likely be moving our way between Monday through next Wednesday, and possibly into Thursday morning.
In the meantime, we continue to experience unseasonably warm temperatures for late October.
