Showers waned this afternoon. The biggest chance for a few linering showers is over Sand Mountain through this evening, but most of us will likely stay dry for the rest of the night. The evening drive will be rather uneventful as far as weather goes. The sun coming out from behind the clouds may make you wish you hadn't left your sunglasses home today.
The rain has mainly shifted east of us, but as a whirl of low pressure tracks northward through Georgia, a few showers can be pushed westward and back into Northeast Alabama. Even with that slight chance for a few more showers, most of us have finished with our showers for today. That mass of rain over Georgia will get a nudge eastward by a cold front sweeping southeastward from the Midwest. The indirect impact on our forecast is that the rain over Georgia won't be there to sneak back into Alabama anymore, as it has for the past few days.
Friday starts foggy. Limited visibility will mean a need for slower driving speeds and low beam headlights. Take the umbrella, too. Spotty showers will begin developing between noon and 2 PM. The showers will be limited and mostly confined to areas between I-65 and the Georgia state line. Even those showers will likely wind down between 4 PM and 6 PM. More sun shining amid the clouds and between the showers will help us to warm back into the upper 80s for our Friday afternoon.
Spotty showers can form Saturday through Tuesday, too. The next round of more widespread rain will arrive in the Tennessee Valley on Wednesday.
