BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - WHAT TO EXPECT OVERNIGHT AND MONDAY: The sky will remain clear overnight and the wind speeds have settled. Therefore, temperatures will be taking a big tumble, especially in the outlying areas. Plan on the possibility of lows in the middle 30s for Monday morning, with patchy areas of frost. This will be one of our coldest nights of the week. Sunshine will return on Monday, bringing a nice improvement in comfort levels by lunchtime, with afternoon highs in the low 60s.
FIRST ALERT FOR SHOWERS TUESDAY NIGHT: Dry weather will continue during the day on Tuesday, with clouds increasing by the evening. Plan on a good chance of rain overnight and into the day on Wednesday, with the possibility of a rumble of thunder. Temperatures will make a big rebound, with mid to upper 60s possible during the start of the day on Wednesday. The morning wet weather could impact some travel plans but the rain should exit quickly. Even though it won’t feel quite as cold Wednesday morning, I would plan on keeping the jacket in the car. Temperatures will tumble throughout the afternoon, with chilly 40s returning after sunset time.
THANKSGIVING DAY: The good news is dry weather will be returning for the Thanksgiving Holiday. You can expect a partly sunny sky for Thanksgiving, with afternoon highs nearing 60º. The clouds will increase again Thursday night, with the possibility of a few showers for the late night and early morning shopping on Friday.
IRON BOWL WEEKEND: The chance for heavier rain thunderstorms will be returning for the weekend. The good news is the data has trended a bit slower, with the heaviest of the rain now arriving later Saturday evening. That being said, the timing may change, so check in often as we fine-tune the forecast. Also, we’re entering a very active weather season in our area so we will need to monitor this system for any changes in parameters that could increase the risk of strong storms. We will post updates on your WBRC First Alert Weather App and we will have updates on TV starting at 9 p.m. on WBRC Fox6.
