Wes: Most areas will stay dry this afternoon; more rain for late tomorrow

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - MAINLY DRY THIS AFTERNOON: We're tracking scattered showers over Chilton, Coosa, and Clay counties today and the primary threat for a few pop-ups will remain in this vicinity throughout the afternoon.

Most areas will continue to enjoy big improvements, with sunshine and less humid air settling in.

Dew points are tumbling into the 50s from northwest to southeast with north to northwest wind at 5 to 15 mph. The sky will be partly cloudy tonight with a big drop in temperatures.

Lows will be nearing 52 degrees, with upper 40s possible across the Tennessee Valley.

RAIN/STORMS LATE TOMORROW: The wind direction will become westerly tomorrow and it's going to be a breezy day as another cold front approaches from the north.

As this cold front enters the state, there is a good chance we will see a band of rain and storms entering north Alabama around 3 p.m.

This line will drop southeast into our area through 6 p.m. and once the line passes, expect a big drop in temperatures. Lows will be in the mid to upper 40s when we step out the door Thursday morning.

A DRY END TO THE WORK-WEEK: An upper level trough associated with the unseasonably cool pattern will build overhead through Thursday and this may bring a cloudy sky at times.

Right now we are keeping our forecast high only in the 60s for Thursday but sunshine is likely for Friday, with highs reaching the middle 70s. The weekend forecast looks nice and sunny, with a big warm-up into the 80s!

I'll share more thoughts on Saturday and Sunday in my forecast at noon, you can also watch the LIVE Stream on the WBRC First Alert Weather app.
