Showers End This Morning; Great Weather on Sunday to End the Weekend

| April 17, 2021 @ 4:00 am

A few spotty showers will move across the area during the first half of your Saturday before the activity finally pushes out and over into Georgia. Skies will remain mostly cloudy with highs ranging from the lower 60s in the north and northwest to the upper 60s in the south and southeast.

A much different story for your Sunday as we can expect mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures. Afternoon highs will be in the mid-60s to the lower 70s across the area.

Monday and Tuesday will be dry days featuring mild temperatures. Skies will be mainly sunny on Monday with highs in the lower to mid-70s. Tuesday will have a few more clouds and highs ranging from the lower 70s in the northwest to the upper 70s in the southeast.

A cold front will sweep through the area on Wednesday morning mainly during the pre-dawn hours to right after sunrise, but there will hardly any moisture with it. A few locations in the northern half of the area may see a few sprinkles to a brief light shower very early, but nearly everyone will remain dry. Skies will be mostly sunny skies, and it will be breezy at times. Highs will be in the lower 60s to the lower 70s across the area.

Temperatures will start to make a quick rebound at the end of the week. Thursday will be a bright and sunny day with highs in the upper 60s to the mid-70s. Friday will be warmer still, but a passing impulse will bring some clouds and a very small chance of a passing shower mainly during the morning hours. Highs will range from the lower 70s in the northwest to the upper 70s in the southeast.

The good news for the NTT IndyCar Series return to Birmingham at Barber Motorsports Park is that there is a sellout for Sunday’s main event. Skies will be mostly cloudy for your Saturday at the track with a chance of a passing shower or two before midday, but will be dry and cool after that. Temperatures will start off around 52 degrees when the gates open and will only top out around 64 degrees for Saturday’s high. Sunday will be a little warmer with plenty of sunshine. Temperatures at the start of the day will be around 50 degrees and will be just short of 70 degrees for the afternoon high.
