BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - First Alert AccuTrack shows some light rain to our southwest, streaming north and eastward from the Gulf Coast as a disturbance passes through the Deep South. Clouds have also moved back in across central Alabama and will stick around through early tomorrow morning.

We have a 20% chance of isolated light rain showers possible overnight, but with the air being so dry, any rain may evaporate before even reaching the surface. Regardless, any measly sprinkles would happen while you’re sleeping, and we should be dry for the morning commute.

We have a First Alert for just some patchy fog possible early in the morning, but we don’t expect widespread dense fog like we’ve seen the past couple of mornings.

NEXT BIG THING: Temperatures will continue to trend warmer for the first week or so of November. Highs will climb into the mid to upper 80s through the end of the work week with mornings staying comfortable in the 50s. As the disturbance exits the Deep South tomorrow, a ridge of high pressure will build in behind it, putting temperatures a good 10 degrees above average by the end of the week. The weather will be on the dry side through Friday with plenty of sunshine around.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: By the weekend, a shift to southeast winds will bring some moisture back into central Alabama. Humidity will be on the rise again, and we have a 30% chance of widely scattered showers for Saturday and Sunday. There is still some uncertainty on how rain chances will turn out over the weekend, so make sure you’re checking back for updates on the WBRC First Alert Weather app. Highs will climb to the upper 70s and low 80s with mornings mild near 60. Expect a partly sunny sky for both Saturday and Sunday with the best chance for a few showers during the afternoon and evening hours.

The weather pattern into early next week still looks warm under a mix of sun and clouds. Expect highs to still be in the upper 80s and low 80s with low rain chances again.

TROPICS: As of 7 p.m. CT Tuesday, Tropical Storm Lisa continues to move due westward through the Caribbean with max. sustained winds at 65 MPH. Lisa is forecast to make landfall in Honduras as a Category 1 hurricane by Wednesday evening. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Martin also formed in the Atlantic northeast of Bermuda today. It will be a “fish storm” and stay out to sea. Neither of these systems poses any threat to the U.S. Our attention turns to the possibility of a disturbance developing near Hispaniola and Puerto Rico in the southwestern Atlantic later this week that could move northward near the Bahamas. Nothing concrete at this time, but this will be the next area to watch in the days ahead. Hurricane season will finally wrap up on November 30.
