BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A pleasant night ahead across Alabama with clear skies and comfortable temperatures -- great views for squeezing in a little stargazing before turning in or getting going in the morning. Temperatures will start fall into upper 50s and mid 60s for Tuesday morning. Sunshine will once again be abundant tomorrow, and temperatures will be a little warmer and highs in the middle 80s. Pollen count will remain high, so continue to take your allergy meds and plan on washing your vehicle.

Next Big Thing: The big story this week is the warm, dry pattern in place. We could end up with highs in the upper 80s Wednesday afternoon with a few spots flirting near 90°F. Overnight temperatures will also end up milder with lows generally in the low to mid 60s. We will likely stay dry and mostly sunny Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the upper 80s. The good news is that the humidity levels look to remain comfortable for most of the week. The weekend looks a touch more humid, but nothing compared to the summertime mugginess around the corner soon enough.

We will be watching a weak area of low pressure that will likely spin off the East Coast this week. Some of the models hint that it could travel to the west, but there’s a lot of uncertainty on exactly where it will go, and what influence it could have on our weather pattern. We could see enough moisture increase Friday for an isolated shower or storm to form in parts of East Alabama. We bumped up the Saturday evening chance to 30% and keeping a 30% chance rain in the forecast on Sunday too. A lot of us will likely end up staying dry though as rain chances don’t look overly promising at this time. With these meager rain chances, you want to supplement the lack of rainfall by taking time to water your lawn and garden as needed this week.
