BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The rain has ended and so has the risk for flash flooding. A river flood warning will remain in effect for the Cahaba River at Centreville. The big story for the overnight will be the possibility of patchy dense fog and lows in the 60s.

THE REST OF THE WORKWEEK AND WEEKEND: Even though the stormy setup is ending, an unseasonably warm temperature pattern will continue. Temperatures will top out in the low to middle 80s through this weekend. Early morning fog will give way to a mix of clouds and sunshine for Friday, but dry weather is expected through the evening. We will have a partly to mostly sunny sky.

NEXT WEEK: A disturbance moving overhead may bring a few clouds on Monday; however, the forecast looks dry for now, with continued warmth through mid-week. A cold front will bring a small chance of rain next Thursday and this could be followed by the return of much cooler air. Longer-range deterministic data is finally hinting at the possibility of autumn air for late week. Confidence is low, but hopefully the forecast guidance continues to trend in a cooler and drier direction.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: Dry weather is expected for the UAB, Auburn, and Alabama games. Plan for unseasonably hot weather, with kickoff temperatures in the low 80s. Temperatures could top out near 90º during the day on Saturday at College Station.
