MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - What a day! A large area of rain and embedded thunderstorms brought a heavy, soaking rain to the state. Rainfall amounts of 1-2″ have already fallen, and more will fall overnight. Rain chances linger overnight, and a few scattered showers will linger into Wednesday morning.

A strong cold front will sweep across the state Wednesday afternoon. Cooler, drier air will push in behind it, ending rain chances and dropping temperatures.
