BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A First Alert for beautiful weather for the Memorial Day Weekend. Temperatures will be on the cooler side tonight, with below average temperatures. The average low is 64º and lows tonight will tumble into the middle to upper 50s. The clouds will gradually thin out overnight, with a partly to mostly sunny sky Saturday. High temperatures will rise into the low to mid 80s, with a north wind at 5 to 10 mph.

The dry weather will continue Sunday, with more sunshine, and highs in the upper 80s. If you are attending a USFL game, SEC Baseball Championship game, or visiting the lake this weekend, don’t forget the sunscreen. The UV index is in the high category, which means sunburn can develop in as little as 15 minutes without proper sun protection.

The dry weather continues Memorial Day, but it is going to be a hotter day. Some areas could reach 90º in the afternoon, with a mostly sunny sky.

The next big thing will be a noticeable increase in muggy levels by Tuesday and Wednesday, with the chance for an isolated shower or storm returning by midweek. The chance for scattered storms and showers will increase during the second half of the week. This will be a very seasonal summer-like setup, with most of the storm and shower activity developing in the afternoon, during the peak heating of the day.

Also, if you are traveling this weekend, don’t forget you can find traffic information on our WBRC First Alert Weather app.
