Warmer Wednesday then back to wintry weather

Clouds will fill back with southeasterly breezes continuing between 10 and 20 miles per hour. Lows will fall into the middle 40s. The rain will be heavy at times and a few spots of flash flooding are not impossible, but I don't think it will be a widespread problem. By later on this afternoon though the clouds have thickened up, and a few isolated showers will be possible as a cold front begins to track through the area.

There are low expectations for the Tigers this year, who are 12-15 in preseason play. The chance of rain is 50%.

Those hoping for spring sunshine will be disappointed as temperatures will be lower than average and heavy rain is forecast. The chance of rain is almost 100%. Rain and snow showers will gradually end Sunday morning leaving Sunday afternoon partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the low 40s.

Look for a mix of clouds and sun Wednesday with light winds and highs in the 50s and 60s.

Yankees say Greg Bird has inflammation in foot
It makes sense for him to be in the lineup on Thursday when the Yankees open their season against southpaw J.A. He also played 11 games there during the most recent Arizona Fall League.

Tonight: Cloudy with a 90% chance for rain and a low near 55 degrees.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for rain and a high near 54 degrees. They will be short-lived, and Sunday afternoon should be cloudy, but comfortable, with highs in the upper 60s.

There is a window of opportunity opening up on Friday for mostly sunny skies and highs near 60°. This bodes well for any Easter egg hunt scheduled around the region. "In total, 2-3" of rain is likely and locally higher totals can't be ruled out, especially in NW Alabama.

Our warming trend looks to continue as we step into mid-week along with more sunshine to be seen. Expect showers to get going again and last through Friday morning.
