TONIGHT: More heavy rain continues after sunset tonight.  There’s a brief window where strong storms producing damaging winds will be possible in West Alabama…although the overall threat is very low.  That window will be from 6 to 9 PM…after that, we’ll transition back to light rain.  After midnight to sunrise, the showers continue.  Low temperatures tonight in the upper 50s.

FRIDAY: A MESS for tomorrow…more rain.  Scattered showers likely tomorrow afternoon.  Flooding is possible…an additional 2 to 3 inches of rain through Saturday, on top of the 1 to 2” that’s fallen, will cause flooding in low-lying areas.  The rain won’t be as heavy as it was today, and no storms are expected.  Highs in the low 60s.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Still anticipating light showers & cloudy skies.  Temperatures will begin falling after the cold front finally pushes through.  The rain will be ending early Saturday morning. Temperatures Saturday morning in the mid 40s.

THIS WEEKEND: Sunshine makes a comeback!  Skies gradually clearing Saturday morning, then partly to mostly sunny skies for the rest of the weekend.  Temperatures much cooler in the wake of the front…close to freezing Sunday morning in the 30s.  Highs Saturday & Sunday in the 50s.

NEXT WEEK: Staying quiet overall for next week.  The only considerable chance of rain in the forecast is on Tuesday, and with that we’re only anticipating light showers and nothing severe.  Temperatures should be near average for early January…that means highs in the 50s, lows in the 30s.
