FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Rain showers moving out of the Valley, temperatures reaching the upper 50s

(WAFF) -

Rain showers will clear out of the Valley from west to east Wednesday morning, taking with it the threat of severe weather. Most areas will be rain free by 7 or 8 a.m. but flooding remains a concern even as the heavier rain ends. Be careful driving this morning and watch out for water on roadways. 

Temperatures will drop into the low-to-mid 50s Wednesday morning before recovering into the upper 50s for highs this afternoon. Skies will become mostly sunny with a west wind around 10 mph. A few passing clouds can be expected tonight with lows dipping to near freezing for Thursday morning.

Our weather remains quiet and dry as we finish the work week. We’ll see plenty of sun Thursday afternoon with highs staying in the mid-to-upper 40s and lows dipping into the 20s for lows that night. Friday should be a little warmer with a few more clouds, with highs pushing near 50° with lower 50s expected this weekend.
