BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: A warmer and more humid air mass has become well established over the state. A steady stream of clouds continues to move in from the west, with the occasional isolated shower developing, and moving east-northeast across the state. Plan for the possibility of a passing shower or sprinkles in the morning. We will have some nice breaks during the day tomorrow, with another big temperature rise into the 70s. We may see temperatures near 80º in some locations tomorrow. The chance for scattered showers and isolated storms will increase in the afternoon and evening, especially across northern locations.

This unseasonably warm and soupy pattern remains in place through Thursday, with highs once again nearing 80º. The wet weather will be more isolated on Thursday, which means we’ll continue to enjoy breaks. That said, in this setup, I still can’t rule out a brief shower passing by. Look for the chance of showers to increase again on Friday, as the front to the north drifts south again; highs on Friday will reach the low 70s.

THE WEEKEND AND NEXT WEEK: The pattern won’t change much this weekend. In fact, we will see rain chances start to ramp-up again late on Saturday, with a good chance for rain on Sunday. I can’t rule out a storm on Sunday; however, no severe weather is expected. Highs this weekend will top out in the 60s. Temperatures may only top out in the 50s in areas to the north on Sunday, so plan for a much cooler feeling day. We will need to watch the middle of next week for a risk of stormy weather. We are seeing indications of a severe threat in states west of here on Tuesday. Too soon to know if this threat will move further east, but it is a system we are closely monitoring. We will keep you posted with updates on the WBRC First Alert Weather App.
