BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Tonight, showers continue to fade away and patchy fog is possible by morning. 

A front stalled just to our south will be the focal point for shower and storm development tomorrow afternoon with coverage up to 40% and highs in the upper 80s. The front will be pushed away by an approaching stronger cold front on Wednesday night but before that happens, a few showers and storms flare up south of I-20 on Wednesday afternoon with highs in the middle and upper 80s.

The strong cold front is our next big thing because it will usher in dry and comfortable air by Thursday, and that nice air will linger through early Saturday before it starts to get a little more humid. Lows in the 50s are possible by Friday morning so enjoy the little cool down! The front will help to scoop up that low pressure system approaching the Gulf Coast and steer it across Florida on Thursday. It will have a 30% of tropical formation once it ends up over the Atlantic on Friday.

The other system we continue to monitor is Major Hurricane Larry. Larry is still on track to weaken some and miss Bermuda to the east by Thursday and track north towards Canada after that.  Other than some swells along the East Coast, there should be no other impacts from the hurricane at this time.
