FIRST ALERT: Rain returns Saturday afternoon

First Alert Weather 9p 7-24-20

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Rain takes a break tonight and overnight. Expect a mostly clear sky in the morning. Overnight lows will fall into the lower 70s.

Saturday morning starts off quiet and then scattered areas of rain and storms form in the afternoon hours. Stay weather aware, especially if you have outdoor plans. I can’t rule out an isolated strong or severe storm. Storms will produce heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and frequent lightning.

More of the same with muggy conditions can be expected on Sunday.

If you plan on heading to the Alabama Gulf Coast this weekend, plan for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Tropical moisture will continue to spill into south Alabama throughout the weekend. Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid 80s Saturday and Sunday with a 50-60% chance for scattered storms. A high rip current threat is expected today as Hanna produces rough surf along the Gulf Coast. By this weekend, plan on a moderate rip current threat along the Alabama beaches.
