FIRST ALERT: Cold, cloudy, breezy, and rainy at times through Saturday
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A FIRST ALERT FOR MORE RAIN, WIND, AND FALLING TEMPERATURES: A large upper level storm system will be moving over the region and making for a cloudy, cold, and dreary setup through Saturday. The sky will remain mostly cloudy through tonight, with a chilly breeze, and temperatures tumbling into the 50s. Showers and drizzle will be likely and plan for more areas of light rain to materialize throughout Friday.
You’ll need the jacket through Friday, as temperatures struggle to reach the low 50s. The sky will remain cloudy, with showers possible through the afternoon and evening. It wouldn’t surprise me if we had a few reports of small hail with any isolated downpours that develop due to the colder air aloft. I’d plan for the possibility of a few showers for High School Football. Temperatures will tumble into the low 50s and upper 40s tomorrow night.
THE WEEKEND: The upper level storm system looks to keep the sky cloudy throughout Saturday. The chance for scattered showers will continue, especially in areas east of I-65. I’d plan for the possibility of a shower for the Magic City Classic and for the game at Auburn. Rain chances will remain near 30%. The big story will be the continued overcast conditions and chilly weather, with highs in the upper 50s Saturday. If you have plans for trick-or-treating Saturday night, dry weather is expected, and the dry weather will continue through Halloween.
NEXT WEEK: The big weather story next week will be sunshine to start the week, with another front impacting the state around Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring a chance of rain and storms by next Thursday, followed by another surge of cooler air. I’ll have more specifics on next week and the weekend in First Alert Weather after football tonight.
