The rain will continue into Saturday night. It is possible parts of northern and NE Alabama could see a brief change over to snow on Sunday morning as temperatures fall to the lower 30s. At this time, little to no accumulation is expected. However, there is plenty of uncertainty in the forecast since the models do not agree. Right now, they only show a low end chance for some snow.
