BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

WHAT TO EXPECT OVERNIGHT: We will have a mostly clear sky, with very calm conditions tonight. This will allow temperatures to tumble into the low to mid-20s in outlying areas, with temperatures closer to 30 degrees in the more populated zones.

Don’t forget the big lunar trio happens overnight, with a lunar eclipse of a rare blue moon and super moon. We will only catch the beginnings of the eclipse early tomorrow morning; however, there will be about 80 percent blockage before dawn. Try to pick a high location for viewing and look to the west-northwest. If you capture a good picture, please share using the First Alert Weather App. 

FIRST ALERT FOR SHOWERS THURSDAY, ACTIVE PATTERN AHEAD: I’m expecting beautiful weather for tomorrow, with sunshine and highs in the 50s. However, changes are coming on Thursday as clouds increase, and showers return. We could see a few sprinkles earlier in the day as moisture increases. The main axis of rain will impact the area from northwest to southeast in the evening (mainly after 3 p.m.) with clearing on Friday. The pattern is going to become a bit more active as we are seeing a series of rainmakers impacting the state over 7 to 10 days.

THE WEEKEND: Saturday still looks dry, but rain will be likely on Sunday as another cold front arrives. Lows will be in the 20s early Saturday but then the temperature will rebound into the upper 40s. Increasing clouds will likely keep temperatures well above freezing Saturday night. The good news is that I’m not expecting any severe weather on Sunday, although rain may stick around longer. We will dry out again for a couple of days, but data shows another rainmaker arriving on February 7th. We will have more specifics after the presidential address on WBRC Fox6 News.
