BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A summer-like day across central Alabama with our First Alert AccuTrack Satellite and Radar showing a few isolated thunderstorms around this evening. Though not everyone will end up seeing rain tonight, more of us could see patchy fog around by sunrise tomorrow morning, reducing visibility on the roads if you’re out early for your Sunday. With a northwest flow pattern in place, we could see some more scattered storms move in by early Sunday, but unfortunately our models don’t have a great handle on summer-like thunderstorms, so just plan for at least a pop-up shower and storm over the next 24 hours or so. Otherwise, lows will start off mild in the 60s tomorrow with highs climbing once more into the mid to upper 80s under a partly sunny sky. We will keep a 30-40% chance of thundershowers in the forecast through Monday before a front comes through and dries us out for the most part through the end of the week.

TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE: If you don’t mind staying up late, you might be able to catch some views of the Total Lunar Eclipse late Sunday into early Monday around 11:11 P.M. tomorrow night. There will likely be at least some clouds around, but even with a partly cloudy sky, you should hopefully be able to catch a glimpse of “Super Blood Flower Moon” with any breaks in the clouds! If you are able to take a good photo, submit on the WBRC First Alert Weather App.

A ridge of high pressure will put a lid on widespread rain chances past Monday, with a 10% chance or less of a thunderstorm each day. Expect plenty of hot sunshine with highs in the upper 80s to start to the week and low 90s in the forecast by Wednesday. Mornings will still be warm and a little on the humid side. All in all though, a very quiet, summer-like pattern.

NEXT WEEKEND: If your lawns and gardens are itching for some more rain, NEXT Saturday and Sunday looks more promising for some widespread wet weather. A system headed our way next weekend could bring us a good 1-2″ of rain with some storms in the mix too. The pattern still looks warm and muggy, though any rain could help to bring temperatures down a bit. Still, plenty of time to iron out the details, but perhaps a little hope for your parched yards! In the meantime, do supplemental watering as needed this week.
