FIRST ALERT: Dry tomorrow and then more rain

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A line of strong and severe storms rumbled through our area this morning leaving damage in its wake. In Chilton County, authorities reported storm damage to homes and roadways. No injuries have been reported, according to the Jemison Police Department.

Meteorologists from the The National Weather Service Office in Birmingham surveyed damage in the area Wednesday afternoon. After their initial investigation, they suspect a high-end EF-0 tornado hit the area early Wednesday morning.

In south Alabama, powerful straight-line winds caused damage to homes along Harden Road in Houston County. In total, five mobile homes received minor damage and 1 was completely destroyed. 

Light to moderate showers will continue to slide east as a cold front dives south and east. As the rain moves out of our area this evening and tonight it will be replaced by cool, dry air. Expect overnight lows will fall in the mid to upper 30s. Expect clear skies after midnight.

We'll receive a brief break in the rain tomorrow. Expect a lovely sunny day with highs near 60 degrees by the afternoon. Clouds will grow back in Friday ahead of rainfall that will likely begin late in the afternoon Friday into the evening hours.

Wet weather will follow us into the weekend as we expect widespread rain Saturday and Sunday.  Highs will range from the mid to upper 60s Saturday. If you're going to the Love Run 5k at Paterson Field in Montgomery, you can plan on seeing cloudy skies and some rain.

Our soggy forecast continues Sunday with highs near 70. Both mornings will start off with temps in the 50s. We could deal with a few thunderstorms both days but we're not expecting severe weather. 

After the weekend basically duct tape your umbrella to your hand since rain looks likely Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Each day will feature highs near 70 with cloudy skies and showers likely.
