First Alert Weather 3-14-20

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - SHOWERS LATER TONIGHT: Clouds are increasing as an axis of rain approaches from the northwest this evening. Showers will become likely after midnight and it’s possible we could hear a rumble of thunder. However, the threat for any organized severe weather is very low. I would plan on a good chance of showers for the start of the day on Sunday but it’s possible we will have some nice breaks in the rain later in the day.

MORE RAIN AND STORMS NEXT WEEK: The unsettled weather pattern will continue next week, with more periods of rain and isolated storms. Forecast guidance suggests a mostly dry start to the day on Monday, with showers more likely in the afternoon and overnight. We will also have a good chance of showers for the start of the day on Tuesday. Although rain chances will remain elevated through next week, we will continue to enjoy breaks in the wet weather. We will also experience another big warm-up, with highs nearing 80º on Wednesday and Thursday. Showers will be likely at times on Wednesday and Thursday, with a chance for a few scattered thunderstorms.

LATE WEEK AND NEXT WEEKEND: The front responsible for the unsettled weather will be on the move again by next Saturday. This will bring an increasing threat of rain and storms for Friday. We will also need to monitor this time period for the possibility of stronger storms. As for the weekend, the rain may not completely exit the area next Saturday, so we will maintain a chance of showers. Be sure to check the First Alert Weather App for updates as we fine-tune the timing of the wet weather. I will also have updates starting at 9 p.m. on WBRC Fox6.
