Rain, warm weather on the way

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) - Good Thursday.  We are running a rainfall deficit of about 3" for the year, but we will cut into that later today.

An area of low pressure is going to work it's way across the southeast later today.  As it does, we can expect scattered showers late this afternoon into Friday morning.  Some models are even suggesting some of the higher elevations in the north Georgia mountains could receive some light accumulations of snow above 1500 feet. Keep in mind, however, other models are suggesting only rain.

Rainfall amounts will range between .3" to .75".

Temperatures will continue their warming trend with a high of 56 today.  Friday we will climb into the low 60s.

For the weekend, a front will wash out over the area.  That will allow for some clouds, but I don't expect any rain.  Temps will reach the mid to upper 60s both Saturday and Sunday.

Next week will start of sunny and warm.  Highs will reach about 70 on Tuesday.

More showers are expected next Wednesday and Thursday.

    It's all about the heat and humidity. There is even a HEAT ADVISORY for northeast Alabama for this afternoon and Saturday afternoon.More

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More

    Our average highs should be sliding downward during the second half of August. We are going to experience the exact opposite over the next few days.More
