BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Happy Christmas Eve! It is a chilly start to the morning with many of us in the low to mid 30s. We have some clouds around, but we'll stay dry today. Good news for those who plan on hitting the stores one last time. We'll see a mostly sunny sky with temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 40s at noon. Highs in the lower 50s with a northeast wind at 5-10 mph.

Christmas Day Forecast: No white Christmas, but we will see seasonal temperatures. We’ll wake up with lows in the low to mid 30s and highs in the mid to upper 50s. Overall, looks to be a nice and quiet Christmas. Clouds look to increase on Christmas Day with a 10% chance for an isolated shower in northwest Alabama. Most of us will remain dry.

Next Big Thing: Our next big rainmaker will move in on Thursday giving us widespread showers and perhaps a few rumbles of thunder. Temperatures will climb into the lower 60s ahead of this system, but as of now, the severe threat looks very low. You’ll likely be sick of the rain Thursday, but rain chances look to remain high as we go into Friday. The system moving through will likely stall producing heavy rain at times and even some thunderstorms on Friday (especially in South Alabama.

Rainfall Potential: We could easily record two to three inches of rain Thursday through Saturday. We could see rainfall totals higher in isolated spots. We’ll definitely have to watch out for the potential to see flash flooding.
