BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - FROST ADVISORY: At the time of this update, temperatures had already tumbled into the upper 30s and low 40s. There is a good chance we will see more freezing temperatures in the early morning, mainly in the outlying areas and for locations north of I-20. Frost will be likely area-wide, and given the breezy conditions we experienced on Saturday, you may want to double check to make sure plants are covered and protected. We may also have some patchy areas of dense fog along and near the local waterways in the early morning. Comfort levels will improve during the day on Sunday thanks to lots of sunshine and lighter wind speeds.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS: Don’t forget to set the clock back one hour for the end of Daylight Saving Time. Sunrise time Sunday morning will be at 6:07 a.m. and sunset time will be at 4:53 p.m. This is always a great time of year to replace batteries in your alert devices, like smoke detectors and NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio.
WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT WEEK: A weak disturbance in the southern branch of the jet stream will bring lots of clouds and a small chance for sprinkles and a few showers for Monday and Tuesday morning. Temperatures will be on the rebound, with highs nearing 70º on Wednesday. A stronger storm system will bring clouds and lots of rain on Thursday. Right now I don’t see a major thunderstorm threat with Thursday’s system.
The rain will exit the area during the early morning hours on Friday, with dry weather returning just in time for the weekend. We will see another blast of colder air on Friday, so plan on another chilly weekend, with highs in the 50s and 60s. Join us for updates after football tonight on WBRC Fox6.
