A stray shower is possible

Posted: Updated:

An area of low pressure is spinning over Louisiana and is sending a band of rain across Alabama and Mississippi. The best chances of rain will be confined to our southwestern forecast area, near Clayton, Clio, Louisville, Troy, Union Spring, and Eufaula. The rest of us will see a fair amount of cloud cover and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Thursday and Friday look very similar to today, maybe a bit drier Friday for all areas as the low merges with the incoming cold front. That cold front will arrive Saturday and provide us with our best chance of rain. At this time, Saturday is looking like a washout due to the slow moving nature of the cold front. Sunday, however, is still up in the air. One model, the Euro, keeps us soggy, but the GFS clears the rain out but keeps clouds around. So stay tuned for future updates from the First Alert Weather Team for the latest.

The first full week of May is looking drier and a bit below average as a northwesterly flow aloft keeps things drier.    

WEDNESDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy. Stray shower south & west of Columbus. Highs near 80.

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear. Lows near 60.

THURSDAY:  Partly to mostly cloudy with a stray shower S & W of Columbus. High: 78

Thursday Night: Mostly clear. Lows near 61.

FRIDAY:  Mostly dry and cloudy. High: 74

Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a few showers possible. Lows near 59

SATURDAY:  Best chance of rain throughout the day. High: 73

Saturday Night: Chance of rain lingers overnight. Lows near 53

SUNDAY:  Scattered showers possible in the morning. High: 72

Sunday Night: Drying out. Lows near 55

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy. High: 77

Monday night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Low: 58

TUESDAY:  Partly to mostly cloudy. High: 78

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows near 58.
