BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The weather will remain much calmer across our area tonight as a seasonal January pattern becomes established over the state. Temperatures will tumble into the low 40s overnight, with some upper 30s possible to the far north in the morning. Plan on jacket weather for the start of our Thursday. The good news is we will enjoy another bright sunny day with highs in the 50s. The wind will be westerly at 5 to 10 mph.

It will feel colder tomorrow night with lows in the middle 30s. We could drop close to freezing to the far north, with some patchy fog, and frost in the colder locations.

FIRST ALERT FOR WEEKEND RAIN: I’m expecting another beautiful day on Friday with sunshine and highs back in the 50s. The cooler-seasonal temperatures will continue into the weekend. We will be tracking another front on Saturday that will bring clouds and a chance for a few showers as early as Saturday night. The greatest chance for showers Saturday night will be in areas to the far northwest.

An axis of rain will slowly transition south and east through the morning and afternoon on Sunday. The day won’t be a total washout, but I do see a good chance most locations could see some wet weather. No severe weather is expected and all of the rain should exit by Sunday evening. This system will stall, which may bring some additional scattered showers around Tuesday of next week.
