HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The WAFF 48 Storm Team is tracking an area oflow pressure in the Gulf of Mexico that will be the next weather maker. Thissystem will make its way from the Gulf coast, tracking through central Alabama,and to the east coast by Thanksgiving Day.

The chance for wet weather will enter the regionfrom the southwest beginning around lunchtime and becoming more scattered throughoutthe afternoon. 

The Monday evening commute will likely be wetfor most. Don't be surprised if a few sleet pellets hit your windshield duringthat time as well. That being said, most of the precipitation will fall as acold rain, and anything frozen will not accumulate or cause travel problems.

Scattered rain showers will remain possibleovernight and throughout the day on Tuesday.  So again, prepare for wetroadways Tuesday morning.

Some of the rain could be heavy at times. We'relooking at widespread rainfall totals around 1-2 inches with locally higheramounts, especially in our south and southeast viewing areas.

As this system departs our region and heads forthe east coast, colder air will begin filtering in. If enough moisture lingers,some snow flurries could mix in with rain or change to all light snow Tuesdayevening  into Wednesday morning. As of right now we are not expecting anyaccumulation or travel problems due to wintry weather but we will of coursekeep you updated on any changes.

If you're sticking around town for Thanksgiving,it will be sunny and cold with temperatures starting in the middle 20s andclimbing into the mid 40s by afternoon.
