BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Temperatures have already tumbled into the 50s in some areas this evening. We are tracking a system that will bring high clouds to the state overnight; otherwise, dry weather is expected.

You can expect lows in the 50s, with a few upper 40s in outlying areas Saturday morning. Morning clouds will give way to another sunny day, with afternoon highs in the upper 70s. Perfect weather for tailgating, college football, and all of the events happening this weekend.

THE REST OF THE WEEKEND AND NEXT WEEK: This dry and stable pattern will continue for several more days. We will continue to enjoy lots of sunshine through the middle of next week. The temperatures will remain very cool at night, with warmer afternoons. Temperatures will slowly modify through the middle of next week, with highs back in the middle 80s by next Wednesday and Thursday.

We will be monitoring a storm system over the southwest United States next week. This system could move further east by the end of next week, but forecast guidance keeps the wet weather west of our area through at-least next Friday. We will also be keeping an eye on Hurricane Sam in the Atlantic. Longer range deterministic data shows this system eventually turning in a more northerly direction next week. However, until that happens, we will need to closely monitor.
