First Alert: Widespread rain arrives this afternoon, lingers through Friday morning
After rain clears the area, everyone turns sharply colder Friday and into the weekend
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Widespread shower activity is moving into the area, and will continue to build later this afternoon and last throughout the overnight. Heavy rain will overspread central Alabama Thursday afternoon and expand into the southern counties by Thursday night. Widespread 1 to 3 inches of rain is likely, plus we cannot rule out a few claps of thunder.
A shower or two could linger Friday morning, but our sky will clear quickly as the day progresses. What happens after the rain? Colder air rushes in behind the front and temperatures will stay stuck in the 50s all day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with overnight lows dropping into the 30s.
The weekend will be cold, but sunny for Saturday and a bit more clouds Sunday, but dry conditions are expected both days this weekend.
The start to next week is looking dry with a warm up expected. Monday and Tuesday afternoon highs will warm into the middle to upper 60s. Overnight lows will also be warmer back into the 40s. While dry to start the week, long range forecast models are hinting at our next chance for rain as we push towards the end of next week.
