BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Dry weather will continue through Saturday morning with a mostly cloudy sky and low temperatures in the 50s. Most of our Saturday will be rain-free, including the events involving the Magic City Classic. We could see a few sprinkles in the early morning; however, the rain chances will start to ramp-up west to east after 5 p.m. I can’t rule out a few showers in the vicinity for the very end of the Magic City Classic game.

The weather should also be dry for the game at Auburn, with possible showers for the drive home. Temperatures around the area will top out near 70º.

RAIN LIKELY SATURDAY NIGHT/SUNDAY: 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, although storms could produce gusty winds and locally heavy rain. There is a risk for severe storms over southwest Alabama. The rain will continue into Sunday and gradually taper off from west to east by Sunday evening. I still can’t rule out a shower during the day on Halloween, but the weather should be dry for trick-or-treating.

Another southern stream disturbance could produce some showers again on Wednesday. Temperatures will remain near average through the middle of the week. Some of the long-range guidance is indicating a system could produce some wet weather next Saturday. Still too early to say for certain, but I want to give you the First Alert on what we are tracking in the long range. We may also see a new tropical system form near the central Caribbean next week. This system will be moving west towards Central America. Hurricane season runs through the end of November.
