J-P: Wet weather pattern develops next week

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We could see a few spotty showers tonight along with breezy conditions. Winds could gust up to 20 mph. Expect overnight lows in the mid-50s.

Friday starts off with isolated showers and temperatures around 50 degrees. A system tracking eastward to our north will bring a band of rain to areas mainly north of I-20 during the day and that rain will continue to impact central Alabama through early Saturday morning.

Tomorrow afternoon, the temperatures will once again reach the lower 60s which is slightly above normal for this time of year.

Next Big Thing: Rain chances will be on the rise through the weekend and especially next week.

Weekend Forecast: Saturday is looking like your best day to be outside in regards to rain chances. Showers will be possible during the early morning hours of Saturday, otherwise it is looking mostly dry with highs in the lower 60s. Rain chances look to increase Sunday afternoon/evening with a rain chance at 60%. We’ll likely warm up briefly into the low to mid 60s as a cold front begins to move through. It’ll temporarily cool us down Monday and stall over our area.

Next Week Appears Wet: A cold front will stall on top of Alabama early next week. We will likely see several rounds of moisture move along this stalled boundary giving us several rain chances Monday through next Friday. Some of the rain that falls could be heavy and several inches will be possible. We will have to monitor for the potential to see flooding as we go into next week. Winter 2018-2019 is shaping up to be one of our wettest winters on record if the models verify.
