Showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy rain are tracking across North Alabama and southern Tennessee as the storm system is finally on the move. All rain will end by Midnight tonight with temperatures falling to near freezing by 4am.
Outside of the roads being wet for most of the evening travel problems are not anticipated due to wintry weather. There remains a chance for a brief period of freezing rain, drizzle and or sleet as the colder air begins to move in.
Most of Saturday will be dry. It will be colder with a small window of sunshine ahead of the next weather maker. Clouds will increase throughout the afternoon with highs only in the middle to upper 30s. Rain will develop overnight Saturday into Sunday. Slightly warmer temperatures will be arriving with the moisture so once again, any travel problems should stay confined to areas with heavy rain and wet roads.
Temperatures will get close to 50 Sunday afternoon but the rain will be almost continuous in most areas. An additional 1-3 inches of rain are likely Sunday into Monday.
Scattered shower will continue on Monday with highs falling back into the middle 40s. A brief period of sleet or freezing rain is possible again on Tuesday but right now confidence on that happening is low.
Have a great weekend and stay warm!
