BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Be ready for a significant drop in temperatures this weekend, with freezing temperatures likely. Lows will tumble into the freezing range north and east of Birmingham Saturday morning, with temperatures struggling to break out of the 40s during the day. This will greatly depend on how much sunshine we see, as the sky could remain mostly cloudy through much of the day. A cold north wind will continue throughout the day. We will have cloud breaks Saturday night, with lows in the upper 20s. Highs on Sunday will remain in the 40s.

One of the coldest starts will be Monday morning, with temperatures as low as 22º in areas to the far north. I would certainly make sure the faucets are covered on Sunday night. We will have sunshine with highs in the 50s on Monday as Spring officially arrives.

THE NEXT BIG THING will be a big warmup next week. We will have highs back in the 70s by midweek and nearing 80º on Thursday. We could see a few isolated showers late Tuesday night over northern locations. Otherwise, the next big rainmaker arrives next Friday, with possible impacts into next Saturday morning. Be sure to check in with Tonia and Fred throughout the weekend. The timing may change since it’s still several days out. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
