Two systems eye Alabama bringing rain and cooler temps

Rain likely Thursday and again Sunday into Monday

Another sunny and comfortable afternoon for Alabama today!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A cold night is underway across the state; under a clear sky, temperatures will dive into the 27-33° range by sunrise Wednesday.

Clouds will build for everyone on Wednesday ahead of our next legitimate chance of rain, but it will still be dry. Highs will likely stay capped in the upper 50s to 60 with the increased cloud cover.

Showers are then expected Thursday courtesy of an area of low pressure set to move slowly across the Deep South. It will be a cool, cloudy and wet day, with afternoon temperatures struggling to reach the mid 50s.

Some pesky light rain or drizzle may continue into Thursday evening and night as some residual low-level moisture hangs around the region. We are not expecting any thunderstorms, heavy rain or severe weather with this system.

Clouds will hang tough for Friday as the system slowly departs. Highs will be cooler both Thursday and Friday in the low to perhaps middle 50s.

A dry and rather chilly weekend is a good bet under partly cloudy skies. Temps will be in the lower 50s in most places during the day, and in the upper 20s to lower 30s at night.

Another cold front will swing through the area Sunday night and early Monday, probably bringing a shot at some rain showers to the area.

There is a fair amount of disagreement among the forecast models on what exactly will happen with this system. Depending on what model you look at -- it could rain, be entirely dry or possibly even wintry. Yes, there have been signs suggesting some wintry precipitation Sunday into Sunday night across the Deep South.

Precipitation is possible Sunday night, but there remains a high degree of uncertainty on if it will occur, and if it does what type of precipitation we will see.

That does include us in Alabama, however the chances are not very high as of now with a lot of things needing to come together just right. For now, it’s just another system that we’re watching.

50s are expected now through next week...
