The latest 7-day QPF map shows that heavy rain can be expected in most of Alabama as well as northern Georgia by mid-week this week as another strong storm system moves through the area. Severe weather is likely again ahead of the system, and it may be shifted farther east than the last two rounds, which would put more severe weather in Georgia and the Carolinas than in the earlier storms. After the storm moves out by Thursday night in most of the area, much cooler air will flow into the region. Parts of the Carolinas as well as northern Alabama and Georgia could see frost again next weekend along with the cold, dry air. Since those areas are now greening up as plants come out of dormancy, the chance of freeze damage there will increase.
