Sunny and warm temperatures Tuesday
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Happy Tuesday!
I highly recommend putting on a jacket before heading out the door this morning. Temperatures are generally in the mid to upper 30s. We are about 10 degrees colder than at this time yesterday. First Alert from AccuTrack satellite and radar It appears to us clear and dry. High pressure is here and will provide us with beautiful weather today.
We expect skies to be sunny with some clouds possible this afternoon. Temperatures will likely rise to the low to mid 60s this afternoon with north winds 5 to 10 mph. If you have any evening plans, I recommend putting your jacket back on as temperatures drop to near 50 by 7 to 8 p.m.
Dry and warm Wednesday: We will likely wake up tomorrow morning with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. We’ll start the day sunny, but clouds are expected to increase tomorrow afternoon.
We’re looking at partly cloudy skies tomorrow with temperatures rising into the mid 60s. Winds will be southeasterly at a speed of 5 to 10 knots per hour. Tomorrow will be another beautiful day to enjoy some time outdoors.
Thursday partly cloudy: The dry weather is likely to continue until Thursday. We will trend a little warmer Thursday morning with temperatures in the lower 40s. Temperatures may tend to cool by a few degrees thanks to increased cloud cover across the region. Thursday will likely be partly sunny to mostly cloudy with temperatures in the low 60s. We can see some upper 50s north of Birmingham. Temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s Friday morning with overcast skies. Isolated rain can’t be ruled out in far northwest Alabama Thursday night, but I think most of us will stay dry.
Another important thing: The big story this week is that we will see a good chance of rain starting Friday and continuing into the weekend. The best chance for rain on Friday will likely occur along and north of Interstate 20/59 Friday afternoon and evening. Friday will likely start in the upper 40s with highs in the mid 60s with a 40% chance of scattered rain.
The weather will be mostly cloudy with increased rain chances late in the day. Rain chances are likely Friday night into Saturday and Sunday. The rain and storms will likely come in waves, so we should see some breaks if you’re planning to head out this weekend. Saturday may be the wettest day of the weekend. We could see a break from the rain on Sunday with another round of rain moving north Sunday evening into central Alabama. Severe weather doesn’t seem likely in this setting, but we could definitely see some thunderstorms over the weekend capable of producing heavy rain, gusty winds, and some lightning. High temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 60s over the weekend. Rain is likely to continue through Monday as the main cold front enters our area. Behind the cold front, temperatures will likely approach average levels during the first half of next week. High temperatures next week could end up in the mid to upper 50s with lows in the 30s.
Possible rain: The pattern looks very unstable over the weekend with rain likely from Friday into next Monday. Early precipitation forecasts indicate one to two inches of rain could be recorded during this time period.
The best chance of seeing rain will likely occur in western Alabama and along and north of Interstate 20/59. We will have a better handle on the timing and severity of the next rain chance by Wednesday and Thursday. Stay with us for continuous updates as you plan your weekend.
