Get ready to put on the rain gear Saturday as you step out the door for weekend plans. A widespread rain will be trudging across the southeastern United States.
This rain is associated with a low pressure center moving through the Tennessee Valley, eventually to the Ohio Valley and the Appalachian Mountains Saturday. The low pressure has an attached cold front, meaning that the temperature will drop quite a bit after the rain is done.
There may be a few isolated stronger thunderstorms Saturday, however as of this writing widespread severe storms are not expected. Still, listen out for thunder and watch out for lightning as strikes can still occur Saturday.
The rain will end from west to east, salvaging some of our Saturday plans. You can expect 1 to 2 inches of rain in a lot of locales, but some spots may get up to 3.5 inches of rain through Saturday evening.
