Rain is still on the way over the next 36 hours. For many of us we'll likely be waiting until tonight for it to arrive. A few showers or sprinkles will be possible through this afternoon, mainly south of the Tennessee River. By midnight, steadier rain will begin to arrive from the south.
It's looking like a wet commute on Thursday morning with widespread, and heavier rain pushing through. The heaviest rain will likely fall to the east of I-65.
That steadier rain will move east with time tomorrow morning and a break in the wet weather is possible by afternoon.
That won't be the end of the wet weather however. The upper level part of this storm system will track through late tomorrow afternoon and into the evening hours bringing one last wave of rain and showers.
Rain should wind down by early Friday morning and some sunshine might even return for Friday afternoon. Rain totals of 1 inch or more are likely across NE Alabama. Rain amounts look lighter in NW Alabama and southern Tennessee.
Tomorrow will also be the coolest day we see for a while with afternoon temperatures only in the upper 40s to low 50s.
The weekend is still looking fantastic with dry weather and a quick warm up! Highs will reach the low to mid 70s.
If the cold weather pattern of the last few weeks has delayed your spring planting, this weekend might be a good time to start. The forecast through mid-month is looking warm and it's possible we may have seen our last freeze or significant threat of frost for the season.
