A cold front will be headed our way during the day, but it looks like it will not impact our weather until Sunday night. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s. Rain and some thunderstorms return this evening into early Monday morning as the cold front moves closer to Birmingham. Some of the storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy rain. Lows will be in the 60s.

A few storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy rain. We could pick up 1-2″ of rain. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s. The front will stall along the coast on Tuesday. We will be mostly cloudy with a few showers possible. High temperatures will be in the 70s. An area of low pressure is forecast to develop along the front and ride along it Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring us more scattered showers and a few storms. Some heavy rain will be possible. High temperatures will be in the 70s each day. Rain totals for the week will be around 2-4″, so we could have some flooding issues across central Alabama. We will finally dry out on Friday with highs staying in the 70s.
