Jill: Tracking spotty showers in central Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The rest of Monday features mostly cloudy skies, a small chance for showers areawide, and a chance for scattered showers and perhaps a storm through the evening hours. There's a slightly greater chance of rain in the northwest part of the state. It will be muggy and mild. Temperatures top off in the 70s.

Tuesday will be the last warm and muggy day. A front that has been hanging out to our north shifts into the area on Tuesday. Showers and a few storms accompany the front on Tuesday morning and through Tuesday afternoon. This wet weather looks to impact the morning commute, especially for areas north of I-20 and lunch time points south. Cooler air filters in by Wednesday. The temperatures look about 20 degrees cooler starting on Wednesday and this trend will continue through Friday. 50s and lower 60s will be common!

We will also see additional chances for light rain on Wednesday morning, Wednesday afternoon, and lastly on Thursday morning. Models differ slightly on the exact areas that will see this rain. We will be the first to alert you once the wetter zones become clearer. Overall, amounts look light.

The rain is gone for Friday and Veterans Day. A few showers associated with our next front looks to arrive on Sunday. Overall, the weekend looks pretty good as a whole.

TROPICAL UPDATE: Tropical Depression 19 has formed in the middle of the Atlantic and is forecast to become Tropical Storm Rita and move northeast and towards Europe over time.
