Jeff Morrow and the WAFB First Alert weather team provide an update on What We're Tracking Next on Wednesday, March 29.

A weak cold front will try to work its way into the local area over the weekend. The front will trigger scattered mainly morning rain showers Saturday. The front is forecast to stall across the area and eventually fizzle out through the early part of next week. Rain chances will remain in the scattered category through Monday. Don’t cancel any outdoor weekend plans you may have as neither day will be a wash out and we don’t expect severe weather or flooding concerns.
