BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Columbus Day starts off dry and we will see scattered clouds and temperatures rising into the lower to middle 80s. A weak system approaching from the west will bring a few showers to west Alabama during the evening hours. Widely scattered showers will continue moving eastward and will be possible through Tuesday morning. Overall, this looks very light and not very impactful.

The big story this week will be above normal warmth. Lows in the 60s and highs in the 80s will be common through Friday. Our Next Big Thing is a cold front heading our way for Saturday.  Showers are possible beginning Friday evening across west Alabama and rain coverage ramping up on Friday night into Saturday. It looks like the bulk of the wet weather will exit east later Saturday afternoon. The winds will increase, and temperatures decrease. Expect a spread in temperatures on Saturday morning as the front arrives with lower temperatures west than compared to east. Highs in the 70s. A First Alert for a cooler than normal start by Sunday and temperatures in the 40s.  We will see sunshine and highs in the lower 70s.

There are a few systems in the tropics, but they only have a slight chance of formation. If something changes, we will be sure to pass along the information.
