BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The chance for isolated showers and storms will continue overnight. Forecast guidance shows the greatest chance for wet weather in areas along and north of I-20. No severe weather is expected, but don’t be surprised if you hear an early morning rumble. The chance for spotty showers and storms will ramp-up during the day on Saturday. The day won’t be a total washout but keep an eye out for pop-up storms. Otherwise, we will have a partly cloudy sky, with highs in the 80s.

Another frontal boundary moves in late Sunday into Monday which will enhance our chances for rain and storms. Temperatures will be held back to the upper 70s and lower 80s. Those that receive rainfall day after day could start to see localized flooding so keep that in the back of your mind. Daily rain and storm chances continue next week but will be slightly lower starting on Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a developing tropical storm over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Conditions now look more favorable for tropical development; however, it won’t spend much time over open water and will move towards northeastern Mexico and Texas over the weekend. Be sure to check in with Fred for updates on the tropics and rain chances for the weekend on WBRC FOX6 News Saturday morning.
