Widespread showers this morning across much of north-central Alabama, with even a few rumbles of thunder being reported. A nice, much needed soaking rain this morning should continue to push east through out the morning and into the afternoon. The cold front has made it into Alabama and is moving down I-22/Corridor X between Tupelo and Birmingham. Once the front passes by your location, you will notice a temperature difference and a wind shift out of the North/Northwest. The high for today has already occurred and temperatures will be falling all day along. We should be in the 50s most of the day, later this evening into the 40s and overnight down into the low-to-mid 30s. Many areas will be flirting with that freezing mark by tomorrow morning.
A quick look at the radar shows the heaviest rain moving through the Birmingham metro right now, but is beginning to taper off back toward the Mississippi state line. Expect a few light, lingering showers this afternoon, and we don’t expect to see sunshine today as the clearing line is still west of the Mississippi River.
