BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - We are sandwiched between two weather systems. We have stormy weather across the Central United States. There’s an area of low pressure spinning off the East Coast that could enhance rain chances for the Carolinas and Georgia by the end of the week. A few clouds will stream in from the north overnight and could bring a stray shower with it overnight. Most of us will not see anything in the way of a drop of rain though. So, expect mostly clear to partly cloudy skies with lows mild in the mid to upper 60s.

Tomorrow morning will start off with a partly cloudy sky, and an isolated shower can’t be ruled out before 9 a.m. west of I-65 and south of I-20. I wouldn’t worry about having the rain gear in tow though, since most of us will stay dry. We should see a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky tomorrow afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be out of the northeast at 5-10 mph.

The area of low pressure off the Southeast coast will likely move into Georgia and the Carolinas Friday. A shift to more easterly winds will likely put temperatures a few degrees cooler. We’ll likely wake up Friday morning with temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. We should end up partly cloudy Friday afternoon with highs in the low to mid 80s. We’ll hold on to a 10% chance for a stray shower mainly in east Alabama, but most of us will likely stay dry. You’ll need to water the plants for the rest of this week.

The upcoming weekend is shaping up to be very warm and dry for most but not for all. Data continues to indicate a 30% chance for rain and storms on Saturday evening, especially west of I-65 as of now. Sunday, the chance is about 20%. Next week has been trending warm and mainly dry with just an isolated shower chance. Low 90s aren’t out of the question by the middle of next week, but stay up to date on the WBRC First Alert Weather app for any tweaks or changes to the forecast.
