Copy of Local Forecast: Rain later tonight

Kat: Showers become widespread by late afternoon

A cold front now situated across the central plains approaches central and south Alabama Thursday morning.

High temperatures are climbing back into the mid to upper 70's. By Saturday afternoon the sky will begin to clear up slowly. Friday should be mostly dry with only a small risk of a shower; the high will be close to 70 degrees. But there will be enough sun to push temperatures into the upper 60s. Thursday night low temperatures will fall into the 40s with a cloudy sky. Temperatures will not be quite as cold tonight and we'll see an increase in clouds during the afternoon on Sunday ahead of our next system. The cold front has passed through and we are now going to be staying dry with overcast skies through the rest of the morning. "Much needed rainfall area-wide totaled between 1-2" for most areas, with the hardest rain falling along coastal Southeastern Georgia, upwards of 2.5".

Mainly sunny conditions are expected for the weekend, as well, but it will be even warmer.

April's grand finale weekend still looks mostly nice. No flooding concerns are anticipated at this time. Expect an early afternoon high in the mid 60s before the front slices 5-10 degrees off the temps pretty quickly.

Thursday and Friday also have a good chance to see some rain as well.

Keep your umbrella handy to start the work week because rain chances will linger. Temperatures will be cooler Wednesday than the past few days, but on Thursday readings will once again return to the lower 60s. A couple of isolated showers and storms will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday.
