MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Showers and a few embedded thunderstorms continue to push quickly southward through the southeastern corner of Alabama. Drier and dramatically colder air will push in behind the rain; Tuesday’s high temperatures will struggle into the upper 40s and lower 50s with a mainly cloudy sky. A few light showers and patchy areas of drizzle will make it feel even colder.

The cold doesn’t last long, though. The front will lift back northward Tuesday night and Wednesday, bringing both warmer weather and an increase in the rain chance for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Additional chances for showers and a few storms exist Friday, but much like Thursday it will not rain everywhere or rain all day long. That is the messaging for the entire week really. No day is a start to finish rain kind of day, but the chances of getting wet are very high over the course of the workweek.

This unsettled weather pattern looks to continue for the upcoming weekend. A strong cold front will likely bring a high chance of rain and storms Saturday and Saturday night, but models continue to shift the timing around a bit. This could result in some forecast adjustments as the weekend gets closer.

Another strong cold front will bring rain and storms this weekend.

Temperatures will go from the upper 70s on Saturday to the 50s come Sunday. With a front like that, we can’t rule out some sort of severe weather threat materializing. That’s something we will have to watch for as the week progresses.
