The cold snap should start to fade on Saturday.

The actual temperature is only expected to reach 10 on Thursday, and Friday's high is forecast to be lower still at 8, with sunny skies both days.

Forecasters are looking at high temperatures close to normal starting on Sunday, but until then, the frigid temperatures will continue into Saturday.

Precipitation is expected to move into the area Sunday morning in the form of freezing drizzle and light freezing rain, according to the National Weather Service.

The next chance for substantial precipitation is Wednesday when Danielson said there's a chance rain will change over into snow.

"Please take proper precautions if heading outdoors for a long period of time", the National Weather Service advised in a forecast discussion.

Some of that rain could be on the heavy side for parts of southwest Alabama on Monday, according to the weather service in Mobile, but no severe weather is expected. Freezing rain could impact travel conditions, so check the condition of roads before departing Monday morning.

Temperatures aren't expected to drop following the rain on Sunday and Monday.

If you haven't already felt the biting cold temperatures as you were clearing snow from your auto on Thursday afternoon, you will very soon.
