BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: It feels nice and tranquil this evening as temperatures tumble into the 70s. The sky will be clearing overnight, with the possibility of patchy fog. You can expect a cooler start for Wednesday morning, with lows in the upper 50s north to lower 60s south. You can expect a mostly sunny sky for Wednesday, with highs in the 80s. I can’t rule out a stray shower to the far south during the evening hours; however, most locations will remain dry through Wednesday night.

THE REST OF THE WORKWEEK: You can expect another good supply of sunshine on Thursday, with isolated pop-up showers and storms in the afternoon. The greatest chance for a passing shower would be during the peak heating of the day, mainly after 2 PM. Forecast guidance shows a disturbance moving west along the coast by this weekend. This will bring a greater chance for a pop-up storm in the afternoon and evening on Friday.

THE WEEKEND: Rain chances will continue to ramp-up this weekend and into early next week. You can expect the typical summer setup for Saturday, with scattered showers and storms in the afternoon and evening. Showers and storms will be more likely on Sunday and Monday. In fact, we could see some wet weather prior to lunchtime on Sunday and Monday. High temperatures will remain in the 80s. By the way, the only tropical system being monitored is a disturbance near the eastern Caribbean. This system has a very low 20% chance of development within the next five days. We will have more on the tropics and extended forecast on WBRC Fox6 News, starting at 9PM.
