Wes: Fog Tuesday morning, rain and storms likely by the afternoon

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - REST OF MONDAY AND TUESDAY: We’ve had lots of wet weather across our area this evening and this will likely lead to some fog development for the morning drive. The steadier rain is tapering off to the northeast and only isolated showers are expected through the early morning. Rain chances will remain very elevated on Tuesday. So while we will catch some decent breaks, areas of rain and storms will be on the increase again by the afternoon.

The general motion of the wet weather on will be northerly. No organized severe weather is expected; however, there may be some big lightning producers, with gusty winds, and localized flooding. A strong southerly flow will keep our rain chances elevated through Wednesday.

FEELING FALL-LIKE THURSDAY MORNING: The first big surge of crisp-fall air will impact the nation over the coming days. The core of this cold air won’t quite make it to our state, although you will notice a less-humid and more crisp feel Thursday morning. The cold front leading this cooler air mass will eventually stall. Therefore, the steamy conditions will build-in and linger through the weekend, with a continuing chance for scattered storms and showers.

We will also be monitoring the tropics over the coming days for more development. There is a system off of the Carolina’s that may become better organized. We will also monitor the remnants of Kirk moving west towards the Caribbean. Leslie is still a tropical storm and the system is expected to remain over the Atlantic in the short term, with no immediate threat. We will have more on the tropics coming up on our news at 9, 9:30, and 10 p.m. You can also find the latest tropical tracks on the WBRC First Alert Weather App.
