Wind Advisory: a rainy, windy Wednesday ahead

The National Weather Service in Huntsville posted a Wind Advisory ending at 3PM Wednesday for the highlighted counties in North Alabama and Southern Tennessee:

The advisory is for strong winds ahead of a cold front: sustained around 10-20 miles per hour with gusts as high as 40 miles per hour possible!

Sustained winds at 8:30 AM (gusts may be close to 40 MPH on ridge tops)

Moderate to heavy rainfall comes behind a strong cold front through Wednesday evening. We still expect around 1″ to 2″ of rainfall through Wednesday night, and there is a small, small chance of some snow flurries or sleet as the rain ends (no accumulation). It turns colder behind the rain! Expect highs in the 30s and 40s with a brisk north wind Thursday and another hard freeze Thursday night.
