BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - After another chilly start on Friday, temperatures will rise into the 70s, with a mostly sunny sky. The weather is going to be perfect in the afternoon, with an east wind at 5 to 10 mph. The dry weather continues through Friday night, so you can expect more nice weather for high school football. Temperatures will tumble into the 60s during the evening, with a gradual increase in clouds overnight. Lows will be in the 50s Saturday morning.

THE NEXT BIG THING will be a rainy setup for late Saturday and into Sunday. Saturday will start off dry; however, showers will be increasing in the afternoon. I’m expecting dry weather for the Magic City Classic Parade, with a few spotty showers possible by the end of game in Birmingham; high temperatures near 70º across our area Saturday. Heavier rain, with some embedded storms, will gradually impact the area from west to east through Saturday night and into Sunday. I’m not seeing a big risk for any severe weather with this system, although any storms that develop could produce gusty winds and locally heavy rain. The upper-level storm system responsible for the wet weather will lift northeast on Sunday. So, we may experience some nice breaks by late afternoon and evening.

HALLOWEEN: Trailing energy behind the weekend system could produce some clouds and a few showers on Monday; however, I’m expecting mainly dry and mild conditions for trick-or-treating Monday night.

Auburn fans can expect dry weather for the game, with showers developing for the drive home. Also, dry and warm in south Florida for UAB fans traveling this weekend. We will have more specifics on the kickoff forecasts, plus updates on the tropics in First Alert Weather on WBRC FOX6 News.
