First Alert Weather: Colder mornings & another severe threat on the horizon
Severe storms possible Friday night into Saturday morning
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Plan for a much colder start to our Wednesday, with lows in the upper 30s. I’m not expecting widespread frost impacts, but you may want to play it safe over far northern areas and bring in the sensitive plants. After the chilly start, temperatures will rebound into the 60s, with a mostly sunny sky. We will have more cold temperatures Wednesday night, with lows in the 40s. However, you can expect beautiful weather for Thursday, with sunshine, and highs in the 70s.
The next big storm threat arrives Friday night. Right now I’m seeing a risk from 9PM Friday through 7AM Saturday. Some storms may be severe, with damaging wind gusts, hail, and isolated tornadoes. The greatest tornado threat may set up to the northwest again, but we won’t know for certain until we see higher resolution data. This system looks to clear our area Saturday morning, with dry weather for the remainder of our Saturday and Sunday.
FIRST ALERT FOR STORMS NEXT WEEK: The chance for scattered storms will return on Monday and with warm/unstable air in place, I can’t rule out a strong to severe storm. Main threats hail/wind. A ridge of high pressure to our south looks to build north, with rising temperatures. More storms will be possible for Tuesday and Wednesday; however, the greatest rain chance may setup further north.
