Strong cold front this weekend bringing heavy rain, lower temps

(WAFF) - We are still on track for a strong cold front Sunday.

Widespread heavy rain is expected to develop by sunrise Sunday morning and continue into the early afternoon. Some areas could see 1-2 inches of rain along with some stronger thunderstorms.

Highs through Sunday will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Much colder air will invade the Tennessee Valley early next week. Morning lows in the 20s for several days and afternoon highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Wind chills could be in the teens Monday morning.

Meanwhile, rain chances drop off to 10 percent Friday and 20 percent late Saturday and it looks like anything we get would be light and spotty. The main chance for rain is coming ahead of the front Sunday. A warming trend gets under way by the end of next week.
