CULLMAN — Rain and cloudy skies are expected to continue across the area through Wednesday morning.

By Friday night, as the low temperature dips to 28, the National Weather Service says there will be a slight chance of rain and snow mixed. The potential for rain and snow will also continue into Saturday.

Today’s prediction is for a 50 percent chance of rain, with the temperature falling to 42 by 5 p.m. The overnight low should be around 37.

According to the Associated Press, a crew from the National Weather Service plans to inspect storm damage in southwestern Alabama to determine whether damage to homes in the area was caused for a tornado or high winds.

Preliminary reports from the weather service indicate that homes were damaged near the small community of St. Stephens, a few miles outside Jackson. Survey crews were planning to assess the damage on Monday.

Forecasters say more than 4 inches of rain has fallen in parts of the Alabama -- and the totals are continuing to climb.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has received reports of 4.55 inches of rain in the Selma area as of 6 a.m. Monday. In Montgomery, 3.93 inches of rain had fallen through 6 a.m. Monday. Evergreen recorded 4.39 inches of rain so far.
