MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Showers are starting to creep over the Mississippi/Alabama state line ahead some really good sleeping weather. Rain starts to become more widespread as the night progresses, providing us beneficial wet weather but no severe storms; a couple rumbles of thunder are possible, but no other impacts are anticipated. These showers last through Friday morning... if you plan to go out early to start your Christmas shopping, make sure you have an umbrella and the First Alert weather app!

The second half of our Friday will trend drier, all ahead of another surge of moisture bringing rain coverage back up late Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.

It will not rain the entire time between Thanksgiving evening and Saturday night... there will be breaks, and there may even be some peeks of sunshine in the mix. What will happen is plenty of rain for the area: a solid 1-3″ of rain will fall, with the potential for an isolated higher amount or two.

Despite this, flooding is not anticipated due to a dry ground and the rain falling over a 48-hour period.
