BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We’re still tracking quite a bit of rain tonight on radar. Many areas have received an additional 2+ inches of rainfall this afternoon. There is no severe weather in the forecast for today or tomorrow.

Many of us should get a break in the rain for Friday. We'll still see some spotty showers and isolated storms. I don't think the rain will be long-lived or as widespread. Temperatures will soar into the lower 70s. Expect some additional showers Friday night.

Saturday morning should be dry with even some periods of sunshine. Temperatures will reach the mid-70s. Instability will increase through the afternoon hours for areas west of I-65. It is still not clear-cut, but there is evidence we could see a tornado threat west of I-65 and north of I-59/20 Saturday evening. We will need to monitor this setup closely. It is possible the threat could become more significant if we see the instability increase beyond what models are indicating. It will be a good idea to have multiple ways to receive severe weather information.

Sunshine will return on Sunday with temperatures in the 60s. Next week looks much drier across the area.
