BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Lots of rain is moving our way. First Alert AccuTrack Radar shows a complex of rain and storms crossing central Mississippi. This should reach our west Alabama counties before midnight. The greatest impacts will happen between midnight and sunrise. No severe weather is expected, but we could hear a few loud rumbles of thunder. This wet weather should taper off to isolated showers around 7/8AM on Wednesday.

The rest of the day on Wednesday looks cloudy, with a chance of isolated showers south of I-20. A cooler northeast flow will be developing, with highs in the middle 60s. I can’t rule out a shower to the far south Wednesday night. Otherwise, you can expect mainly dry and chilly conditions for Wednesday night. There is a good chance we could see some upper 40s on the map early Thursday morning.

THE REST OF THE WORKWEEK: Partly sunny and dry weather will return to the entire area on Thursday, but temperatures will remain on the cool side for this time of year. Highs will only reach the upper 60s, with overnight lows in the 40s. Friday will be a comfier day thanks to bright sunshine, with highs near 75º.

THE WEEKEND: Expect another chilly start on Saturday, with lows in the 40s. However, the rest of the day looks great, with lots of sunshine, and highs in the upper 70s. Warmer weather is expected on Sunday, with sunshine, and highs in the 80s. A south flow will return late in the weekend, and this will bring another big increase in moisture levels for the start of next week. This will bring a chance of isolated showers and storms on Monday, with a greater chance of scattered showers and storms for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
