BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A warm front lifting north across our area will continue to produce clouds and rain. The heaviest rain will be setting up over northern areas tonight and a few storms could develop to the north. However, further south it will remain very dreary, with clouds, patchy fog, and mainly scattered areas of rain. No severe weather is expected but be safe out there on the wet roads. We have quite the temperature gradient across the state, with near 70º to the west, and 40s to the far northeast. The milder air will continue building into the area overnight.

The sky conditions won’t improve much on Tuesday. I’m seeing another dreary setup in the morning, with a cloudy sky, and scattered showers. Our Tuesday won’t be a total washout and there will be some breaks, but check the First Alert Weather app, because scattered showers will be possible in the afternoon. One thing you’ll notice is a much warmer feel, as temperatures rise into the 70s.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY: The axis of heaviest rain will set up north of our area on Wednesday and Thursday. I still can’t rule out a passing shower; however, we will have some periods of rain-free weather, with highs soaring into the 70s. Some locations may reach 80º during the afternoon hours on Thursday.

LATE WEEK: A cold front sweeps in on Friday and brings an increasing chance of rain followed by dry weather for the afternoon and evening. Right now, I don’t see this bringing severe weather. In fact, the system could stall again, which means more rain returning for this weekend. Global data shows dry weather continuing through most of Saturday, with an increasing chance of rain for Sunday.
