BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC)- If you decide to brave the elements and take the kids trick-or-treating tonight, be sure to bring along an umbrella.
Rain could begin to impact west Alabama as early as 1 p.m. The highest winds will likely be in west and northwest Alabama, according to FOX6 Chief Meteorologist J-P Dice.
Scattered showers are expected to develop and last through the night, but the system will likely weaken as it moves east.
FOX6 Meterologist says west Alabama, including Tuscaloosa, Carbon Hill, Fayette, Double Springs, Livingston, and Hamilton, could see heavy rain during the prime trick-or-treating hours tonight.
Rain could reach Cullman, Blount, Etowah and northern Jefferson County by 7 or 8 p.m. Folks in southeast and far east Alabama may be able to trick-or-treat before the rain moves in. Wyatt says it's "still a close call" for areas in central Alabama including Birmingham, Gadsden, Oneonta, Centreville, Clanton and Alabaster.
