BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - We’re experiencing a dramatic shift in temperatures across the state with overnight lows heading into the lower 40s. The clouds will hold on tonight with a small chance for a few lingering showers.

Showers will continue on Saturday morning across east Alabama and then dry out during the afternoon hours. Clouds will be stubborn to clear and may never do so until after the sun goes down across east Alabama. Temperatures will be in the 60s for those that see afternoon sunshine and in the 50s elsewhere. If you are going to the Oak Mountain Spring State Fair or the Baron’s game then I would definitely wear a jacket and pants

Easter Sunday is shaping up to be a beautiful day! Bundle the kids up if they are doing an early morning egg hunt outside because temperatures will start in the 40s. I think the afternoon hours will be best because temperatures will be in the middle and upper 70s and sunshine will be abundant.

Next week the weather looks great early on and dry and then the models start to diverge starting on Wednesday. The GFS shows a good chance for rain and storms on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday but the Euro holds off on rain and storm chances until Friday. We will keep you updated on our next chance for rain. Look for updates on the WBRC First Alert Weather App. You’ll need an umbrella and warm clothes today.
