Showers and storms will continue to develop near a cold front has stalled across the area. The front will move back and forth through the weekend bringing periodic rain chances to the area. Some of the rain will be heavy at at times through Saturday afternoon. An additional 1-3" of rain will be possible, with some areas seeing a bit more that get repeated rounds of storms.
We will likely see a break in the rain from Saturday afternoon through Monday of Sunday as the front pushes back into the Gulf of Mexico. Another round of storms will push toward the coast Sunday night into Monday as another stronger wave of low pressure approaches the region. This should be the final round of rain, before dry weather returns for the weekend. There is a threat for severe thunderstorms on Monday, mainly east of I-65, but this will be highly dependent on how far inland the warm, moist Gulf air can penetrate. The most likely area for this appears to be northwest Florida and southeast Alabama.
The rest of the week will be cooler and dry, as a large upper level trough forms over the eastern US. This trough will send cool air from Canada down toward the Gulf Coast through at least Thursday. With an offshore wind and lower humidity...chances for rain will be slim to none after Monday. Morning temperatures may drop into the 30s toward the end of next week as the cooler air settles in.
