Matt: Rain chances on the increase Thursday evening
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - It has been a gorgeous Tuesday so far across Central Alabama. Temperatures have warmed up into the 70s as of noon. We will see high temperatures climb into the low to mid 80s by this afternoon. Temperatures nearly 5-10 degrees above average. Southwest winds at 5-10 mph this afternoon.
The weather will be fantastic to visit the WBRC Weather Team in Cullman today through 6 p.m. at the Handy TV and Appliance (1802 2nd Ave SW). You can meet us and get your NOAA Weather Radio programmed. If you plan on heading to the Barons game tonight at 7:05 p.m., the weather will remain dry with temperatures dropping into the 70s and 60s.
First Alert: The 80s will continue tomorrow with clouds slowly increasing ahead of our next system. We do want to give everyone a first alert for the potential to see showers and a few storms late Thursday evening and into the early hours of Friday morning. Severe weather is not expected with this system. Greatest chance to see strong storms will be to our south along the Gulf Coast.
Weekend Forecast: We will gradually clear out Friday evening and see plenty of sunshine on Saturday. Weather should be fantastic for the Talladega Speedway this weekend, Strawberry Festival in Cullman, and Celebrate Hoover Day. High temperatures climbing into the lower 80s Saturday.
Trending Hot Next Week: Models continue to show us mostly dry going into next week. We could see a small rain chance late Sunday evening, but the models are showing most of us staying dry. High temperatures could climb into the mid to upper 80s next week. It wouldn’t surprise me if we saw temperatures approach 90°F in a few spots by next Tuesday and Wednesday. Summer is near!
