The blue skies throughout North Alabama Wednesday morning will quickly cloud up by lunchtime today. Outside of areas closer to the Mississippi state-line, North Alabama remains dry through the rest of this morning.
Rain chances are on the increase through the afternoon in conjunction with a passing cold front. No concerns for severe weather today though a few embedded thunderstorms will be possible. and it won't even be much of a rain maker. Forecast rain totals for the entire 7-day period don't look to exceed half of an inch. Showers come to an end by Thursday morning.
Once the cooler air arrives it stays with us for quite some time. Highs persist in the mid 60s and lows range from the lower to upper 40s. At this point in time, it doesn't look like it will be getting cold enough to worry about frost as the coldest nights only see temperatures dropping to near 40 degrees. A few showers are possible again Saturday, then the remainder of the extended period is fairly dry with some sunshine.
