Rain is expected with daytime highs around 50 degrees, forecasters said.

For this system the Storm Prediction Center has all of Acadiana and most of the Gulf Coast under a marginal risk (5%) for a few storms to turn severe with damaging wind gusts and quarter size hail as the main threat but a brief spin up tornado cannot be ruled out.

A gradual clearing trend will start from northwest down to the southeast through the afternoon.

Our wet weather is all due to a cold front that will create a wide temperature range this afternoon. For that reason, Thursday is going to be a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY because the weather is likely to be disruptive and may force you to alter your plans in some form or fashion.

Under a partly cloudy sky, temperatures gradually cool through the 60s this evening. Some of the showers will have embedded thunderstorms as they push through our region. On the low end we could see some central Alabama locations like Alexander City and Clanton with highs near 60. A warm front will quickly surge north Tuesday night.

More rain will be on the way late Wednesday night into Thursday.

We have had a few, much needed, days of little or no rain around the area.
