BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The weather situation won’t change much for the remainder of the night with temperatures tumbling into the upper 40s and low 50s. Plan for a cold start to the day on Wednesday. Temperatures will recover nicely in the afternoon, with highs in the 70s.

The dry weather will continue through the afternoon hours, but a storm system will bring a chance for rain and storms late Wednesday night. This will be a dynamic system; however, a lack of instability will greatly reduce the risk for organized severe weather. We could see some showers after suppertime Wednesday night, with the wind becoming gusty. Make sure loose items are secure and be sure to tie down the inflatable pumpkins. The wind gusts may top 30 mph through the overnight. The main line of rain and storms will cross the area from west to east between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m. Thursday. Plan on the possibility of a storm for the morning drive on Thursday. Once the line passes, temperatures will remain comfortable, with the possibility of afternoon sunshine.

MUCH COLDER WITH SHOWERS FRIDAY: A trailing disturbance will bring in much colder air for Friday. Temperatures on Friday will be nearly 20º colder, with a chilly north wind, and overcast sky. This will be one of the coldest days we’ve had in quite some time. Furthermore, scattered showers and sprinkles will be possible. I can’t rule out a shower, along with colder weather for the Magic City Classic Parade on Saturday. Clouds could linger through a good portion of the day, but I’m expecting dry weather for the game. I’m also expecting dry weather and clearing for trick-or-treating Saturday and for Halloween.

We’ve got the World Series on WBRC this evening, but we will be live at 9 p.m. on our WBRC streaming channels. You can download our streaming channel apps for Roku, Firestick and Apple TV. We will also be LIVE after the game. Have a great evening!
