Leftover showers gradually end, turning cooler

40s likely by sunrise Wednesday

Josh Johnson's Monday evening update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The risk of severe weather has ended in Alabama; we’ll expect a few leftover showers and storms to linger into early Tuesday morning. But, these shouldn’t be “severe” - meaning we do not anticipate any damaging wind, large hail or tornadoes to form.

Cooler, drier air will move into the state today, and that will kick off a streak of really nice Fall days. You’ll really feel the chill by Wednesday morning, when temperatures drop into the mid and upper 40s! Cool, comfortable and dry air continues through Thursday afternoon, before our next rain chance arrives Thursday night into Friday.

Weekend forecast details are murky as of this writing - there is considerable model disagreement on the timing and strength of our next upper trough, which could mean the difference between a wet/dry forecast. So, for now, we’ll mention a chance of rain, but understand that the weekend rain percentages could go up or down substantially in the next couple of days. Bottom line - stay tuned.
