FIRST ALERT: Passing shower or thunderstorm possible Saturday
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Most areas will remain dry through tonight, with only a stray pop-up shower during the early evening. Lows will be in the 60s tonight, with temperatures rising into the 80s tomorrow.
Most of the storm activity today has been moving south across Mississippi, around a high-pressure ridge to our west. We could see some of this development closer to home tomorrow, with a better chance for some storms or showers to track southeast across the area. We could see some scattered storm development prior to lunchtime tomorrow; however, any wet weather should be moving along quickly, so any rain delay would be temporary. Keep an eye on the WBRC First Alert Weather App for the possibility of a precipitation or lightning alert tomorrow. Otherwise, there will be plenty of sunshine in the mix. The chance for a passing shower or storm will continue through tomorrow night.
The rest of the weekend and start of next week will remain very summer-like, with highs back in the 80s on Sunday and Monday, with more scattered showers and storms possible in the late afternoon and evening. Rain chances will remain limited through the middle of next week as the heat levels continue to build. One of the next big weather stories will be the possibility of widespread 90s through the middle of next week.
THE NIGHT SKY: Lots happening for sky watchers this weekend, including a space station flyover tonight. Look to the southwest at 8:50 PM. There will be a 7-minute viewing window. Also, a Total Lunar Eclipse will take place Sunday night. A lunar eclipse happens when the earth’s shadow crosses the moon. This will begin at 9:15 PM.
