BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - REST OF TONIGHT AND TOMORROW: The stretch of dry weather will continue for most areas for the remainder of the weekend. The sky will be mostly clear overnight, with low temperatures near 63º. We will mention a very small chance for a stray shower or storm for Sunday afternoon. Otherwise, most locations will enjoy a partly to mostly sunny sky, with highs near 89º. If you plan on being on the lake you can expect a light southeast wind early in the day, becoming northeast in the afternoon and evening.
WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT WEEK: I would plan on watering the lawn and garden next week as the chance for rain will remain very limited. One feature we will be tracking is an upper level disturbance that will become cut-off over the Carolinas. Because of this system, we will keep a small chance for a pop-up afternoon shower or storm in the forecast for Monday through Thursday. Otherwise, most locations will be dry, with a good supply of sunshine each day, and highs in the middle to upper 80s. The hottest locations next week will be over West Alabama, where temperatures could reach into the low 90s by the weekend. Some data shows a better chance for scattered showers and storms for Friday. If that solution materializes, daytime temperatures will remain in the upper 80s. I’ll have more specifics on the long range in my forecast at 9, 9:30, and 10PM. I will also be posting updates on our WBRC First Alert Weather App. You can download the app for free by searching WBRC in your app store.
