BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A hint of fall is in the air tonight! We will have a mostly clear sky overnight with lows in the 60s.

You can expect beautiful sunny weather for Friday. After a cooler start to the day, temperatures will rise into the 80s. You can also expect dry weather for high school football.

THE WEEKEND: The dry weather will continue for Saturday with more sunshine and highs nearing 90º. Another cold front will enter the region on Sunday, so there will be a chance for a few afternoon storms. The chance for scattered afternoon pop-ups will also return in the afternoon and evening on Labor Day. If you are visiting Auburn for the game, expect temperatures in the 80s with sunshine on Saturday. The weather will also be dry for Alabama fans tailgating in Atlanta. The high temperature will be nearing 90º in Atlanta on Saturday.

NEXT WEEK AND THE TROPICS: Long range data is indicating another cold front will impact the region around next Wednesday. This could bring an increase in storms and showers for the middle of the week. If this front clears the area, we could see a nice surge of less muggy/dry air for the end of next week.

We will also be tracking Hurricane Larry in the Atlantic. For now, this system does not look to be a threat to the Gulf Region. We will keep a close eye on it and pass along frequent updates on the WBRC First Alert Weather app.
