Get out your umbrellas, Wiregrass.

According to the National Weather Service, the area should see a substantial amount of rain between now and Wednesday.

Meteorologist Jeff Evans said Sunday that a front moving in from the west should dump two to four inches of rain on the area over the next few days.

Evans said the rain was needed, as the area is currently five inches below average rainfall for the year.

“We’ve been in a bit of a drought for awhile,” he said.

Evans said the rainfall would not likely cause widespread or severe flooding. Most flooding would be isolated to very low-lying areas. Evans also said the risk of tornados after Sunday was small, and should peter out as the week progresses.

Temperatures should not be greatly affected by the rains, Evans said. Highs for the next few days will be in the 60s and lows in the 40s.

Evans said a front moving in next weekend might have a stronger impact on temperatures, driving them downward.
