Light rain will start up this afternoon.
Today and Tonight: Clouds are already in the area and they will continue to build for the rest of the morning. Temperatures will hit the low 70s before light rain starts to move in.

Up Next: On Friday morning, there will be widespread rain in the area from Mississippi to the coast. The rain may slow you down as you head out the door tomorrow.
