Most of the area has been shielded from massive areas of rain over the northern parts of the Deep South, but the high-pressure ridge that has kept the rain away will eventually weaken and yield, allowing better chances for a few areas of light showers or drizzle for Wednesday. Sunshine will be seriously lacking for the next several days to come, as the departing high will allow the corridor of disturbed weather with a slow-moving front to move south. Individual waves of low pressure will track southwest to northeast along the boundary; one such system will slide through by late-week to push some colder northern air into the area, while keeping a good deal of moisture and cloudiness in place. The highest rain chance for our area will come Thursday. Tonight, very mild for early January with lows in the upper 50s to around 60°, but highs will only go up a few degrees into the 60s with limited sun and considerable cloudiness in place.
