Weather Blog: Going down

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Generally cloudy conditions continue into our Wednesday morning as a few passing light showers favor south Alabama. Most of our central Alabama counties are slowly drying out, minus a stray sprinkle or two. Today is a transition day as our rain over the last 48 hours works southward. Colder air is waiting and promises to make for a cold Thursday. But a rapid warmup brings Spring back by the weekend.

TODAY: Clouds look like they're going to want to hang around for the remainder of the afternoon for most of us. We could start getting a few breaks of sunshine late across mainly our northern counties, but sunshine southward is going to be difficult before sunset. Highs will climb into the lower 60s north to middle 60s south with the threat of a few passing showers favoring our southern counties into afternoon.

In terms of additional rain totals, I think we've pretty much peaked as anything additional today will be insignificant.

COLD AIR TRICKLES DOWN: As skies gradually clear overnight tonight, temperatures will fall into the 30s through central Alabama. It will be a noticeable difference given how warm we've started the week. Highs Thursday with sunshine will struggle to get to 50 degrees with overnight lows falling to around 30.

The cold doesn't last long as a quick rebound puts highs back in the middle 70s by Saturday. While a few showers will be possible Saturday, it appears Sunday is the wetter of the two as a frontal boundary approaches.
