FIRST ALERT: Rain and storms likely Saturday

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Thursday temperatures will be even warmer with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

The sunshine continues Friday with highs in the lower 80s. We'll see an increase in cloud cover on Friday with a chance for showers after 10pm.

FIRST ALERT: Saturday will be an active weather day with heavy rain likely both during the morning and afternoon. It is possible rain could continue until the evening. We're still working on the timing of this system. It is also possible we could see a few severe storms capable of damaging winds and even an isolated tornado. The best chance for the strongest storms will remain west of I-65 and south of I-20. We will monitor for changes and revise the forecast as necessary. I would expect easily over two inches of rainfall with this slow moving system. Updates on our WBRC First Alert weather app.

Tuscaloosa Air Show Forecast: The forecast looks wet and stormy for the air show Saturday. Expect rain chances in Tuscaloosa at 80-percent.
