Weather Blog: Storms pushing eastward

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The main line of storms that are most concerning have moved through the majority of the state. The squall line will continue to glide eastward and will be on the Georgia side of the boarder later this morning.

The best areas for any new warnings this morning is down in the Wiregrass Region in southeast Alabama, but even there severe potential is limited.  A flash flood watch remains in effect until 6 PM for the majority of the viewing area as rain persist. The flash flood watch  has a chance to expire early as rainfall moves east out of the state.

AFTERNOON/TONIGHT: The cold front will continue to slide east/southeast this afternoon. Rain coverage will decrease west to east through the day. There could be some left over moisture behind the front but only enough to warrant isolated rain chances near sunset this evening. Due to the cold front moving through during the day, expect a cooler afternoon in the low 60s. Tonight clearing will continue allowing partly to mostly cloudy skies to become mostly clear overnight. Temperatures tonight will be well cooler in the upper 30s to low 40s.

THURSDAY, FRIDAY & THE WEEKEND: High pressure builds in Thursday as the sun makes a comeback to the state. Due to northerly winds temperatures will be cooler and drier in the 50s for daytime highs Thursday and Friday. Nighttime lows will be chilly in the low 30 underneath clear skies. As we end the workweek with fair and cool weather there is the potential of some rain this weekend. Computer models are still coming into agreement but there is the potential of an area of low pressure developing over the Gulf and pushing north. Odds are most of us stay dry Saturday as temperatures stay in the 50. Sunday into next week looks more favorable for rainfall but still at 20% most of us stay dry.
