Rain chances from Delta linger into Sunday

Looking at rain chances for tonight and tomorrow

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It has been a rainy day for many! A large rain band from Delta pushed through the state earlier. As it did so, it produced small pockets of rotation, but nothing that touched down as a tornado. Now that band has pushed into Georgia and has taken the tornado risk with it.

More rain is possible overnight tonight, but severe weather is not expected.

Then, showers will continue into Sunday. These will not produce severe weather either; it will be more of an off and on light rain situation. It will not rain all day, so don’t cancel Sunday plans, just keep the First Alert Weather App handy to check radar!

Showers are possible off-and-on Sunday

By Thursday night, a cold front will move through. It will bring the cooler, fall-like temperatures many of you have been wanting for the weekend!
