Rain, rain go away

It was another rainy weekend for Chilton County, as avoiding puddles seemed to be a common theme throughout the area.

Following consistent waves of showers, Clanton received nearly one inch of rain during that time while the northern part of the county received slightly more, according to the national weather service in Calera.

However, some more raindrops must be dodged before the weekend takes hold. The National Weather Service has called for a 40 percent chance of precipitation from Wednesday night until Thursday afternoon.

With the threat of rain also comes the possibility for thunderstorms, but the probability of severe weather appears to be diminishing.

“We had previously mentioned that there was a small chance, but it [severe weather] is becoming less likely,” meteorologist Jason Davis said. “It should be cleared out by Thursday afternoon.”

According to Davis, the temperature should drop once the rain moves on with a projected low of 44 degrees Friday morning.

The end of the week should offer some much-needed relief from the rain. According to the National Weather Service in Calera, there is no percentage of rain in the weekend forecast.

“ It should be dry the rest of the week,” Davis said.

The sun is expected to shine throughout the weekend with a projected high of 58 degrees and a low of around 37 degrees on Saturday. The high for Sunday will approach 61 degrees.

If that forecast maintains, it will allow everyone a chance to dry out and offer an entire weekend that does not require looking up at the sky every time you step outside.
