BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Cold air continues to pour into the state tonight with the north wind gusting over 25 mph. We continue to track spotty precipitation to the east.

A mix of rain and snow continues to impact areas to the northeast. In fact, a dusting of snow was reported at Gallant in Blount County. This precipitation will be exiting to the east, with temperatures falling into the 20s.

Wind chills will tumble into the teens and single digits overnight. The big winter weather threat will be east of our state. A powerful storm system will move up the east coast with blizzard conditions expected across the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast.

Frigid to start off the weekend and a colder feel. Highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s on Saturday and sunny. The breeze should settle down by Sunday morning and temperatures will fall into the 20s. Sunday afternoon, temperatures turn around dramatically as southerly winds set in and highs will be well into the 50s. So Sunday will be the more comfortable day for outdoor activities.

Warming trend continues into next week with highs in the 60s through Wednesday. The static meter improves dramatically next week too! Another cold front will slowly develop across the Central United States early next week. Rain chances start to climb late Tuesday and the best chance for rain sets up on Wednesday and Thursday. Storms will be possible, but it remains too early to determine the intensity of this system, so stay with us as we fine tune the forecast. We are not forecasting any severe weather for next week as of now and we think the main threat will be heavy rainfall. Rainfall totals next week could add up around an inch.
