J-P says rain chances are high for Saturday

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The rain holds off tonight with overnight lows in the upper 30s.

Saturday morning starts off mostly dry and there is only a slight chance for showers. During the afternoon and evening hours rain moves in from west to east and it could be heavy at times. If you have evening plans, expect rain and to have an umbrella with you. Luckily the instability will be low and temperatures will only get to the lower 50s that we aren’t concerned about storms.
