FIRST ALERT: Scattered storms to move in from the north tomorrow PM
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Tonight, will be another comfortable night and temperatures will fall to around 65 by Sunday morning.
Dry to start the day and through the early afternoon hours on Sunday, but that changes from northwest to southeast after 3PM.
FIRST ALERT, A weak front moving in will spark shower and storm development. The activity that forms will push south towards I-20 through the evening hours. A couple of the storms could be strong initially, but the activity will break up and weaken to a few showers on Sunday night into Monday morning. Counties in and around the I-20/59 corridor have a chance for showers into Monday morning. Temperatures will warm into the upper 80s and it will be a little muggier. Those attending The Black Crowes concert at Oak Mountain might see a few showers but the chance for storms looks low at this time. Bring a poncho just in case.
Labor Day features a 30% coverage of showers in the morning hours along and north of I-20 and then scattered showers and storms forming late morning and lingering through the early afternoon hours along and south of I-20. A low around 70 and a high near 90. Tuesday, the rain coverage will be at 20% and temperatures will be very similar.
A FIRST ALERT for the combination of a cold front and a tropical system along the Gulf Coast to produce rain and storms in Central Alabama on Wednesday. The chance of tropical formation of the system that’s over the Yucatan Peninsula that will track over the Gulf is at 30% for now but that could change. There is some indication of strengthening just before it hits the coast on Wednesday to either a Tropical Depression or a Tropical Storm. Either way, it will bring rough surf, dangerous rip currents, 1-3″ of rainfall and locally higher amounts, and a spin up tornado threat to the Alabama Gulf Coast, the Panhandle of Florida and southeast Alabama. Of course, this forecast is subject to change seeing it hasn’t even made it over the Gulf yet. Keep up with this evolving forecast on the WBRC First Alert Weather App and of course, on my fan page, twitter account, and on WBRC Fox 6 News after the game tonight.
