BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A cold front draped across the Central Plains will create a chance for summer-like storms this weekend.

If you are going to the Jason Aldean concert Friday, be prepared to deal with light rain at the start. Models show a chance for rain along the I-59/I-20 corridor through 10 p.m.

Expect to see some isolated to widely scattered showers and storms developing Saturday. Most of the activity will fizzle out at night once the sun sets. If you are going to the Jason Aldean concert on Saturday night, just have a poncho with you just in case.

We can't rule out pop up showers and storms during the day Sunday. So while most places will stay dry or only see a brief passing shower or storm, keep an eye to the sky in case you have to shift plans indoors.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS:

The majority falls today and amounts will range from .5" to 1". Locally higher amounts possible.

STORM STRENGTH:

A strong storm can't be ruled out Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon though widespread severe weather is not expected. The strongest storms will be capable of producing gusty winds, locally heavy rainfall and frequent lightning.

TIMING:

FRIDAY:

*Northwest Alabama: Best chance for rain is before 6 p.m.

*Along I-59/I-20 corridor: Best chance for rain is before 10 p.m.

*East of the corridor: Best chance for rain is before 1 a.m.

SATURDAY:

*A few showers and storms possible during the afternoon and early evening hours. Isolated to widely scattered in nature. Not as organized as the activity moving through today.

MOTHER'S DAY:

*Slight chance for isolated afternoon showers and storms. Don't cancel outdoor plans, just keep an eye to the sky.
