FIRST ALERT: A First Alert for more rain and storms late Saturday, possible severe risk by the middle of next week
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: We have a First Alert for some patchy areas of fog overnight, with lows in the 40s. We are tracking the next rainmaker that will build in later tomorrow. We could wake up to a few isolated showers in the morning. The chance for scattered showers will increase in the afternoon over West Alabama, with highs in the 60s. The heavier rain arrives after 6PM, with a few storms possible overnight. The risk of seeing anything severe is very low.
IRON BOWL: If you have tickets to the Iron Bowl, don’t forget the rain gear. We should have dry weather for tailgating in the morning in Tuscaloosa. The weather should also be dry at kickoff, with clouds, and temperatures in the 60s. Once again, showers may start impacting the vicinity as early as 3PM. Even if we don’t see rain for most of the game, rain will become increasingly likely by the end of the game and for the drive home.
THE REST OF THE WEEKEND AND NEXT WEEK: The rain will end from west to east late Saturday night and into the early morning hours on Sunday. Therefore, expect big improvements on Sunday, with sunshine returning, and highs in the 60s. Lows will tumble into the 40s early Monday, but we will enjoy a nice temperature rebound into the 60s, with sunshine.
We will be tracking another system on Tuesday that will be producing stormy weather and possibly severe weather in states west of here. This system could start to impact our area as early as Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Guidance has indicated more wind energy and instability with this system, so we will need to be alert for a possible risk of stronger to severe storms, especially in areas to the west.
