First Alert: Heavy rain could cause more flooding this week

More rain will fall this week

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Spotty showers linger through the overnight, but the coverage of rain will be limited. Patchy areas of fog could develop in a few areas, and temperatures will drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s by sunrise Tuesday.

A cold front arrives tomorrow, bringing the chance for more showers and possibly a few rumbles of thunder. For Election Day, your lowest rain coverage will come late in the afternoon and into the early evening. Still, even at that time, there will be some scattered showers around the state. So, an umbrella will be a good electoral decision.

The front will stall somewhere near our southern counties and set us up for rounds of rain and storms Tuesday night through Thursday. Rainfall totals could exceed three inches in spots, creating a flooding risk.

We’ll also watch for the potential of a few strong storms in far south Alabama, along the Florida state line...although the risk looks very low.

The front finally sweeps out of the area later Thursday, bringing an end to our rain chances. This will set us up for a sunny and seasonable weekend!
