Updated: 4 hours ago

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Happy Friday everyone! We are getting ready for another dry and cool weekend on the way! Temperatures this morning are a little warmer with the majority of us starting out in the low to mid 50s. A few spots north of I-20 are in the upper 40s. First Alert AccuTrack Satellite and Radar is showing us mostly clear and dry. A cold front to our northwest will move into Central Alabama later today giving us another round of dry and cool air just in time for the weekend. We are forecasting increasing cloud cover this afternoon and evening as the cold front moves into Central Alabama. We will remain dry. Temperatures this afternoon are forecast to warm into the low to mid 80s with a partly cloudy sky. Winds will continue from the north at 5-10 mph. As the cold front moves into our area, we could see isolated wind gusts up to 15-20 mph. Mid-to-upper level clouds will linger across Central Alabama this evening and tonight, but we will remain dry. If you plan on being outside for high school football games, plan for temperatures to start out in the lower 70s at 7 PM. Temperatures are forecast to cool into the 60s late this evening.
