BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - FIRST ALERT for areas of dense fog forming overnight, especially south of I-20. Dense fog advisory for a few counties south begins after midnight and lasts until 8 a.m. Remember to drive slowly, allow extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you, and use your low beams.

We will start off in the upper 40s and rise into the lower to middle 70s. Sunshine to start and then increasing clouds during the day from west to east. Falling into the upper 50s and lower 60s during the evening hours and overnight lows in the lower 50s.

FIRST ALERT: A stray shower can’t be ruled out on Saturday, otherwise we will just see mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures. If you’ll be in Atlanta tailgating for the SEC Championship game it will be near 70 degrees and post-game temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A few showers can’t be ruled out on Sunday during the day, especially northwest otherwise the main round of rain and some thunder arrives Sunday night into Monday morning. Severe weather does not look to be a part of the mix.

FIRST ALERT: Cooler and turning drier on Monday afternoon since a cold front moved through. Temperatures will top off in the lower 60s, which may occur early in the day. If you put plants outside during the warm stretch, you’ll want to bring them back in before Tuesday morning because temperatures are forecast to fall into the frosty range. The cool down will be temporary as another warm front is expected to surge northwards Tuesday evening. Warmer air will likely return by Wednesday with lows in the upper 40s and highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Unsettled and Wet Pattern Expected Next Week: The long-range forecast continues to hint at a wet setup across the Southeast by the middle and end of next week. Another system could stall and produce a rainy pattern across Alabama next Wednesday through Friday. Timing and intensity of this system remains uncertain, but it would not surprise me if parts of the Southeast picks up several inches of rainfall. Flooding could be a concern. It remains too early to know if we’ll see any strong or severe storms. We can’t rule out the potential in this kind of pattern so start mentally preparing.
