Nice today, but showers & storms return tomorrow - WVTM-TV: News, Weather, and Sports for Birmingham, AL

Showers, storms Friday before drier weekend

Updated:

Two days of sunshine will come to an end with showers and thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening.

Sunny and 71 on Thursday was just barely below normal for this time of year and we will be even warmer Friday. Overnight will be warmer than Thursday night with a low around 49 as clouds build in closer to the morning hours.

A cold front will approach on Friday and skies will become mostly cloudy.  There could be a brief morning shower, but rain will be more likely during the afternoon and evening hours as the cold front moves through the state. 

There will also be a few isolated storms during the afternoon and evening with the frontal passage and there is a slight risk of severe weather.  The main threat will be damaging wind, but small hail and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 70s. 

That front will weaken as it moves out to sea Friday night.  As a matter of fact the air behind the front is mild from the Pacific in origin, instead of from Canada.  So on Saturday, with mostly sunny skies, highs will still reach into the upper 70s.

Another front will try to drop down from the north on Sunday, but it now looks like it will stall near Virginia, so with partly sunny skies we should still make it into the upper 70s.

Monday will have a mixture of clouds and sun with a slight risk of a late day shower.  Highs on Monday will drop back into the middle 70s.

By Tuesday another cold front will approach from the west and the weather will become unsettled again.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and isolated storms.  Highs both days will be in the middle 70s.

Cooler air will be moving in on Thursday for the start of May.
