First Alert Weather 9p 3-5-20

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - WHAT TO EXPECT OVERNIGHT AND TOMORROW: The sky continues to clear across our area tonight but we’re starting to see some fog development. Patchy dense fog and low visibilities will be possible through midnight, but this will improve once wind speeds increase and drier air enters the area. We’re tracking a cold front that will impact the area after midnight. This will bring a stronger northwest wind, which may top 15 to 20 mph Friday morning. Overnight lows will be in the upper 30s and low 40s; however, wind chills will be tumbling into the low 30s. A chilly northwest wind will continue throughout the day on Friday, with highs in the 50s. The good news is the sky will be mostly sunny.

THE WEEKEND: Winds will settle Friday night, with lows tumbling into the freezing range Saturday morning. Temperatures will rebound nicely by lunchtime on Saturday, with afternoon temperatures nearing 60º. The sky will be mostly sunny, with a clear sky for Saturday night. Temperatures will tumble into the 30s Sunday morning, with a light freeze across northeast locations. Also, don’t forget we spring forward on Sunday, for the start of Daylight Saving Time. Dry weather will continue through Sunday, with an increase in clouds late in the day.

FIRST ALERT FOR RAIN NEXT WEEK: We will have another stretch of mostly cloudy days starting on Monday, with periods of wet weather next week. However, there will be some nice breaks in the rain next week. We will have a chance of showers for late Monday and during the day on Tuesday, with scattered showers for Wednesday and Thursday. We will need to keep an eye on the end of the week (March 13th timeframe) for the possibility of heavier rain and storms as this system exits the state. We will keep you posted with frequent updates on the WBRC First Alert Weather App.
