Tonight, there are a few isolated storm popping up on the radar. Rain will come to an end by midnight, and we will be left with a mostly cloudy sky until sunrise. by morning, temperatures will range between the upper 40s to low 50s.

The cold front will be south of Birmingham by Friday morning, and any rain will be gone. You can expect it to become mostly sunny and a little cooler with high temperatures in the lower to mid 70s. Friday evening will be cool for the high school football games. Temperatures will be in the 60s. Friday night will be mainly clear and chilly with lows in the 40s.

Weekend Forecast: An area of high pressure is forecast to build over the Southeast U.S. this weekend. This will make it mostly sunny and mild on Saturday with high temperatures in the upper 70s. Sunday will be warmer and pleasant with a mostly sunny sky. High temperatures climb back into the lower 80s.

Next Week Outlook: A trough of low pressure and cold front will move through on Monday. These systems will set off scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of them could be strong to possibly severe, so we will have to watch to see how this evolves. Then we dry out on Tuesday with a partly cloudy sky and temperatures around 80°. Another cold front is expected to move through Wednesday into Thursday. This will bring us more thunderstorms and a few could be strong to possibly severe. We will continue to watch to see how that evolves once we get into next week. After this front moves through we will turn cooler heading into next weekend.

Tracking the Tropics: The tropics are quiet and tropical development is not expected over the next 5 days. Forecast models continue to show that the tropics are starting to calm down as the season only has 6 weeks left. That is not to say we couldn’t see a storm pop-up in the next few weeks, but for now nothing is showing that happening.
