BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Clouds will continue to decrease overnight, with temperatures falling into the low 20s in many areas. The wind speeds will lessen; however, wind chill will be a factor, with feels-like temps in the teens and 20s in the morning. Make sure you drip your faucets and check on the pets.

Sunshine returns Saturday afternoon and temperatures will warm into the 40s. The wind will be northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures will tumble into the teens and 20s again Saturday night. Sunshine and a wind shift will allow afternoon temperatures to warm into the upper 40s and lower 50s on Sunday.

Our next big thing is the chance for rain to return Monday evening into Tuesday. Monday will likely start out sunny with temperatures in the upper 20s. Plan for cloud cover to increase throughout the day and highs in the low to mid 50s. An area of low pressure will likely develop in the Gulf of Mexico spreading showers across the Southeast. Heaviest rainfall will likely occur across the Gulf Coast. Plan for showers to move in Monday evening from west to east and continue into the morning hours of Tuesday or even the afternoon hours depending on exact timing. Temperatures Tuesday afternoon will end up slightly cooler than Monday with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. The timing of the rain could change over the weekend, so make sure you check in with us for new updates. The rest of next week is shaping up to be dry and cool with highs in the 40s and 50s with lows in the 20s and 30s.
