Though the severe weather threat has long passed, the cloudiness and shower chances have not quite yet. The actual cold front is currently moving through our eastern counties, and a drop in temperatures is being experienced in central and western areas. All locations will have a colder trend overnight with ongoing cloud cover. A second batch of showers over southeast Alabama will continue to move southeasterly, somewhat slowly, over the next 12 to 24 hours as the frontal system stalls once more across the Florida peninsula. It’ll be just close enough to keep considerable cloudiness around for most of Thursday. As a result of the clouds and the cooler air, lows tonight will fall into the middle 40s and highs will be limited to the upper 50s and lower 60s. More robust clearing is anticipated Friday as a second wave of energy rides through. A further plunge in temperatures is forecast for the weekend with a strong, but generally dry, Arctic front. Freezes are possible Sunday and Monday mornings.
