BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until Sunday evening. Flash flooding was a big issue earlier today, but First Alert AccuTrack is much quieter tonight.

Still some areas of rain overnight tonight and patchy fog. It looks like Fred Hunter will be busy tomorrow morning because the radar is supposed to become very active with rain and a few embedded storms. Flash flooding will be possible with the morning round and anything that develops during the afternoon. I really hope folks make smart decisions tomorrow and don’t try and drive through flood waters.

Temperatures will fall into the lower 70s and rise into the middle and upper 70s tomorrow. A spot or two may reach the lower 80s.

Unsettled weather with high chances for rain and storms continues early in the upcoming week. A cold front will save the day though on Wednesday when it passes through. Dew points in the 70s will drop to the 40s and that will mean a comfy feel to the air and overnight lows in the 50s on Thursday and Friday. Data suggests the dewpoints climbing back into the upper 50s and maybe the lower 60s over the weekend ahead of another cold front and then back down again after that.

Tropics remains active but nothing close to the United States. Odette is moving east over the Atlantic and away from the Northeast, a tropical wave about 650 miles east of the Leeward Islands has a high chance of becoming the next storm, and a wave near Africa has a high chance of formation too.
