BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The greatest chance of rain on Labor Day weekend will be Saturday, and the rain chances will lower as it gets closer to Monday.

We are tracking a trough to the west and tropical moisture that will be on the increase as the weekend approaches. The two combined will result in the development of scattered showers and storms.

Drought conditions continue to expand and worsen across the state. A new area of moderate drought has developed across portions of Clay and Tallapoosa counties and a small portion of Coosa, Randolph and Chambers.

Rainfall for the year is below by a little over two inches in Anniston, almost five inches in Birmingham and close to two inches in Tuscaloosa.

You may have to adjust your outdoor plans this upcoming Labor Day Weekend and or bring rain gear to any outdoor event, game, etc. you are attending.

The timing is poor but we need the rain and computer models indicate the possibility of some areas getting up to one inch by Sunday morning.

TIMING THE RAIN CHANCES:

Saturday morning: A few passing showers are possible, otherwise dry. Best chance will be along and to the west of the I-59/I-20 corridor.

Saturday afternoon: The steadiest zone of precipitation sets up across the northwest corner of the state and it could be quite a damp day across Marion county for example. East of the main rain axis, we'll see more scattered showers and storms developing and tracking from southwest to northeast.
