Rain chances increasing as the weekend nears

Expect partially sunny to mostly cloudy skies as a disturbance rolls across the region today.  We can’t rule out a brief passing shower across western and northern counties.  Daytime highs will be in the lower 50s.   We’ll call for mostly cloudy skies overnight with low temperatures will fall back to near 40.

A strong system moves our way on Friday.  Rain will develop to our west Friday morning.  It will move into western Alabama by Friday afternoon and overspread the rest of region by evening and overnight.  Some rain could be heavy at times with locally over one inch in spots.   Daytime highs will top out in the low 50s.

Rain will linger into the first part of the weekend.
