BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s another chilly fall night in Alabama. At the time of this update, the sky was mostly clear with a bright moon overhead.

Temperatures will tumble into the 40s overnight, making for another cold start. The good news is we will enjoy more sunshine for our Tuesday with a nice warm-up into the 70s during the afternoon.

Temperatures will generally be in the lower 60s for the Earth, Wind and Fire concert in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday evening. Seasonal temperatures and a few more clouds are expected on Wednesday (The average low is 54 and average high is 76).

The best chance for rain this week is on Thursday. The models are still trying to figure out whether or not a cold front connected with the rain will move through or stall to the north. So, for now, we have a 50% chance of rain and storms on Thursday and lingering into early Friday. We went a bit warmer, with highs near 80º for the weekend since the global data is starting to trend warmer for the weekend. The forecast also looks dry for the weekend, with a mix of clouds and sunshine.
