BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We have already seen some passing showers Thursday morning and we will have to monitor the First Alert Doppler Radar this afternoon for storm development. Storms are possible west of I-65 after 3 p.m. Some of those storms could be strong or severe. There is a low-end risk today for severe storms. There is a five percent risk for strong winds and large hail and a two percent tornado risk.

Be sure to change on the WBRC First Alert Weather app in settings, your location to "follow me." That way no matter where you are located, you'll get watch and or warning information.

Scattered storm chances remain Thursday night for areas mainly north of I-20.

There will be a 30 percent chance Friday for widely scattered showers and storms, and the same on Saturday, but the overall trend will be for lower chances at the front responsible lifts back north. Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour before bed on Saturday, and while you do that it's a good idea to check and replace batteries in your smoke detectors and weather radio.

A very mild temperature pattern is unfolding and looks to linger into next week. It is going to be muggy again and lows will be in the 60s and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. The next cold front looks to work its way in from the north next Wednesday and that will mean slightly cooler air but nothing frosty.
