First Alert Weather 9p 11-20-20

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - If you have weekend plans, the weather looks fantastic. We can expect highs in the lower 70s both Saturday and Sunday with scattered afternoon clouds.

Rain chances will remain limited over the next few days. The weekend will be perfect for decorating outdoors. The sky will be clear enough to again see Saturn and Jupiter.

We will see an increase in cloud cover and moisture next week. We’re watching a strong system that will move through our area Wednesday. Expect a good coverage of rain and storms along with some gusty winds. The system has plenty of windshear, but instability is still low. If we see an increase in instability Wednesday, it is possible we could have a round of severe storms. Make sure you are receiving frequent updates this weekend via the FIRST ALERT Weather app.

Thanksgiving will be a bit cooler with highs in the mid 60s with a mostly sunny sky. No rain is expected for Friday either.
