Rain will move from west to east across the area tonight with isolated thunderstorms possible. Localized flooding will be a threat as rainfall totals of 0.5 to 1 inch will be possible. A cold front will usher in sharply-colder air Wednesday night which will lead to a threat of sleet, freezing rain or freezing drizzle. The threat of ice will begin across northwest Alabama first and shift east through Thursday morning. While this won’t be a crippling ice storm, a glaze of ice could cause slippery surfaces, especially bridges and overpasses as they cool quicker.

Temperatures rapidly fall behind cold front passage tonight

Temperatures will be in the 30s during the day Thursday with strong northerly winds gusting to 30 and 35 mph. This will lead to wind chills in the teens and 20s so make sure you have your heavy coats, beanies, and gloves if you’re heading out. Download our Live Alert 19 weather app for the latest!
