Thursday: will be a drier day, but we will still have plenty of clouds around. It will be warm and humid with near record high temperatures in the upper 70s. Some of you could make it to 80°. The record high in Birmingham on Thursday is 79° (1978).

Friday: A cold front will move across the Southeast U.S. on Friday but will not pass-through Birmingham until late in the day. Expect another mostly cloudy day with a few light rain showers, it will not be a wash out kind of rain. High temperatures will still be in the 70s. Friday night will be dry and cooler with lows near 50°.

Weekend Outlook: Saturday will be a little drier, cooler and less humid in the wake of the cold front. We will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance for a few showers. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s. Sunday will have a better chance for rain as the old front stalls south of Central Alabama. Expect clouds with scattered showers and highs in the lower 60s.

Next Week Outlook: The weather will stay unsettled into next week. Monday and Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a better chance for rain Monday, and brief break from the wet weather on Tuesday. Highs will be in the mid 60s. There is better agreement between models now, with most of the heavy rain occurring on Wednesday. Right now, expect scattered showers and storms on Wednesday. Some of them could be strong, so we will have to watch to see how this evolves. There will be plenty of wind shear in place over Central Alabama.
