The rain will move into Tuscaloosa around 4 p.m., but temperatures will be in the 40s so no ice accumulation is expected. Rain is expected into Thursday, but the overnight low will be in the high 30s, so no travel issues are expected in the Tuscaloosa area.

Cold temperatures will remain in the Tuscaloosa area through Friday, with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s. The weekend will warm up, with highs rising into the 60s.
