Rain coverage goes down Wednesday and beyond

Colder air arrives this weekend, next week

Rain chances slowly go down

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Rain, rain and more rain. It’s been a very wet Tuesday; thankfully, the coverage and intensity of the rain will go down (but not away) Wednesday and beyond.

Wednesday through Saturday will all feature a scattering of showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms. Overall, fewer of us will have rain - and the rain will be lighter in nature.

We don’t expect damaging thunderstorms, but a few claps of thunder could be in the cards. The risk of flash flooding will diminish, but area creeks, streams and rivers will stay elevated for the foreseeable future.

Finally, late Saturday, a cold front sweeps through the Deep South. This will usher in drier air, finally cutting off the moisture that has kept us so wet for so long. But, it will also lead to a drop in temperatures. We drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s Saturday night; highs Sunday will struggle into the mid 50s.

Long range model guidance is consistently showing a blast of much colder air for early next week - highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s by next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
