Good Wednesday midday to you! A few scattered storms are developing across parts of central and west Alabama. These cells are moving very slow to the southeast, but many spots will remain rain free. If you see a storm in your area, expect heavy rain and intense lightning for a short period of time. Many spots will not get a drop today, but if you get rain, it may last 20 minutes and then end. The chance of rain today is at 30%.
Higher rain chances will arrive on Thursday and Friday. While it won’t rain all day on Thursday or Friday, expect many towns to get a good soaking rain. There could be a strong to severe storm out there, but I don’t expect any big severe weather issues at this point. A cold front will move through our state Friday evening, which will bring lift to kick off showers and storms. Rain is possible at any time day or night on Thursday and Friday, but the best chance of rain will occur during the afternoon hours. Drier air will take over in time for the weekend.
