FIRST ALERT: More scattered storms for Tuesday
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Showers have diminished on our First Alert AccuTrack Satellite and Radar tonight, and we are left with a mostly cloudy sky and relatively pleasant evening. Some patchy fog could develop in the morning with lows in the 60s. A stray shower is possible overnight otherwise it’s not until late tomorrow morning and through the afternoon hours that we see scattered storms form again. A strong or severe storm can’t be ruled out with the risk for strong wind gusts. Otherwise it’s locally heavy rainfall and lightning to watch out for. Keep up with radar trends and any alerts via the WBRC First Alert Weather App for updates. Temperatures will continue to run near average in the low to mid 80s at best. Have the umbrella and rain jacket around just in case, especially if you’re headed to the polls to vote anywhere from lunchtime into the early evening.
We will see another risk for strong storms Wednesday and Thursday. The morning starts off quiet, but storms look to fire up during the afternoon and evening hours. Activity looks to be ongoing into Thursday, when the most widespread rain coverage is expected. An incoming cold front will be responsible for the storms. Strong winds and large hail can’t be ruled out. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon could briefly warm into the mid 80s. We will likely trend cooler Thursday thanks to cloud cover and high rain chances with highs in the upper 70s. Rainfall totals could end up around 1-3″ between now and Thursday evening. Drier conditions should move in by Friday, though we can’t rule out a few rain showers lingering early Friday morning.
Much more comfortable air filters in on Friday and that comfy air looks to linger through Memorial Day weekend. Breezy on Friday, partly cloudy, and highs in the lower 80s. The upcoming weekend is shaping up to be very nice! We should stay dry with plenty of sunshine over the weekend. Temperatures are forecast to start out cool with lows ranging from the low 50s to low 60s for the start of the holiday weekend. So, plan for cool mornings and warm afternoons. Highs Saturday are forecast to climb into the mid 80s, upper 80s and lower 90s on Sunday, and lower 90s on Memorial Day. Rain chances look to be at 10% or less on Monday with humidity on the rise again.
