Through the morning there will be continued thunderstorms chances with the possibility of severe storms as well as the risk of fog for several areas. Partly sunny, with a high near 80 degrees. We'll then see another shot at some scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday night across the northern third of the area.

Lower humidity and slightly cooler air will push in for a couple days as morning lows return to the upper 50s to lower 60s for the next couple of mornings. The storm chance returns Friday through the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.

Wednesday has been declared a Weather Authority Alert Day because of rounds of severe storms that could contain damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour, up to 1 inch hail, isolated tornadoes, lightning, and heavy rainfall. We only have a 20% of an afternoon t-storm with high temperatures rising back into the middle and upper 70s. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 56.

It will be partly sunny and in the mid-60s on Saturday.

Wednesday: A 40 percent chance of showers, mainly before 1 p.m., high near 59.

Tuesday: Partly to mostly cloudy.

The high has been below 70 degrees on only one May day in Birmingham since records started in the 1880s. What looked like a good chance for showers tomorrow morning, now appears to be only a slim chance for a stray shower or two...keeping most of tomorrow dry too.

After a stormy day for parts of central Georgia, things should settle down some for the overnight.

According to the National Weather Service, it will be mostly sunny on Tuesday with a high near 90.
