BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - High clouds continue to move in as our next big thing gets closer and temperatures are mild and in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Take advantage of the nice weather because a system along the Gulf Coast will bring the southern half of the WBRC First Alert viewing area rain late tonight into Tuesday morning. Best chance sets up along and especially south of I-20. A cold front then moves through late Tuesday and very cold air returns by Wednesday.

Below freezing temperatures in the 20s return by Wednesday morning. Drip your faucets and keep your pets inside. Mostly sunny but well below normal on Wednesday afternoon with highs in the middle 40s.

Another cold start on Thursday with lows in the upper 20s, but afternoon readings will be closer to normal and climb into the lower 50s. We will likely see another cold front move into the Southeast Friday. Data keeps flip flopping and so we are not very confident in the forecast as to whether we will see precipitation or not. GFS is coming in way wetter and the EURO is dry. For now, we are leaning with the EURO model. We’ll keep you posted on all platforms including the WBRC First Alert Weather App.

The good news about this upcoming weekend is that we will remain dry with plenty of sunshine. The bad news is that it will start off very cold. Morning temperatures Saturday morning are forecast to drop into the low to mid 20s. We will end up with a mostly sunny sky Saturday with highs in the mid 40s. Sunday morning will start off cold with temperatures in the mid to upper 20s. Sunday should end up partly cloudy sky with highs in the low to mid 50s.

Enjoy the lovely weather.
