First Alert for fantastic weather for the Memorial Day Weekend

Updated: 1 hours ago

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Happy Friday! It’s been a wet and unsettled week, but we are finally entering a quiet weather pattern as we finish out the month of May. We are starting out the morning with temperatures mostly in the 60s. It is slightly cooler in northwest Alabama where temperatures have cooled into the upper 50s and lower 60s. We are seeing some fog in parts of east Alabama, but I am not expecting any widespread issues across the state thanks to westerly winds at 5-10 mph. First Alert AccuTrack Satellite and Radar is showing us mostly dry with a partly cloudy sky. A few sprinkles are possible early this morning, but we should end up mostly dry going into the afternoon and evening hours. We should see plenty of sunshine later this morning and into the early afternoon hours, but wrap-around moisture from the upper level low to our north will help spread some cloud cover into the northern half of the state this afternoon and evening. We will likely go from a mostly sunny sky to a partly cloudy sky. Temperatures are forecast to remain below average with most of us climbing into the upper 70s. A few spots south of I-20 could climb into the lower 80s. It will feel very nice to be outdoors today as humidity levels drop during the day. It’ll be a little breezy at times with westerly winds at 10-15 mph. Anyone graduating this evening or heading out should expect mostly dry conditions with a partly cloudy sky. Temperatures will likely cool into the lower 70s by 7-8 PM. Congratulations to the class of 2022!
