BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - REST OF THE WEEK: We will continue to enjoy a break in the humidity for another couple of days. Rain chances will remain limited through Friday. Expect overnight lows to fall into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Sunshine is back for Thursday and Friday with highs in the upper 80s. The rain chances will remain limited at only 20-percent.

THE WEEKEND: Scattered storms and showers will be in the forecast for the end of the week and weekend. I’m expecting the more typical summer setup for Friday and Saturday, with showers and storms mainly in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will reach the 80s, with feels-like temperatures in the 90s. Moisture levels will increase throughout the weekend and this will lead to higher rain chances on Sunday. I still think we will catch some breaks, but I wouldn’t leave the house without the rain gear. Also, be sure to download our First Alert Weather app for lightning alerts.

NEXT WEEK: The pattern won’t change much next week. We’ll have morning clouds giving way to partial sunshine each day. As temperatures rise into the 80s, scattered storms and showers will be increasing in coverage. High temperatures will remain in the 80s, with feels-like temperatures in the 90s. We don’t see a risk for organized severe weather, but we’ll need to monitor for isolated strong storms. We are also tracking a couple of disturbances in the tropics. One system is about to enter the Caribbean and it has a very low chance of development. We’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if there are any changes.
