BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - FIRST ALERT FOR PATCHY FROST THIS MORNING: Temperatures have dropped into the 30s into many areas.

So, bring in or cover those sensitive plants while you still can. And, I hope you brought in your pets overnight.

Today should see a nice turn around in temperatures. Under mostly sunny skies, expect highs to top out in the mid to upper 70s. Winds shouldn't be as breezy as yesterday, coming out of the west at 5-10 mph.

Tonight is expected to be mostly clear with lows around 55 and SW winds around 10 mph.

Wednesday should bring the passage of a mild cold front, dropping our temperatures a bit through the end of the week. A slight chance of light showers could develop Wednesday night.

We should see mostly clear skies Thursday through Saturday and mild spring-like temperatures.

We should see our next best chance of rain by Sunday, but at this point this system does not look to be severe. A good chance of rain should last Sunday through Monday morning.

I hope you have a great day!
