J-P: Rain returns followed by blast of colder air

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We'll see a mostly clear sky overnight with lows in the lower 50s. A few spots in North Alabama with fall into the upper 40s.

Friday temperatures rise above normal and top off near 80 degrees. We will see increasing clouds as our next cold front inches closer. I think it will stay dry for high school football games but by the morning hours on Saturday, shower chance will start to increase.

A FIRST ALERT for a wet start on Saturday. Scattered showers are likely during the late-morning hours and ending southeast during the afternoon. It should be dry after 1 p.m. for areas along and north of I-20 if you plan on going to an outdoor event. Skies look to clear at night and the weather will be refreshing for the UAB game. If you plan on staying up late or waking up early on Sunday morning to view the Orionid Meteor Shower then plan on bundling up because temperatures are going to dip into the lower 40s.

A FIRST ALERT for patchy frost across north Alabama on Sunday and Monday morning. Temperatures as of now don’t look cool enough in central Alabama for a frost threat but if you have sensitive outdoor plants, you might want to consider bringing them in.

Sunshine returns in full force through Monday and cooler than normal temperatures.
