Scattered Storms Continue, Some Flooding Is Possible Through Midnight… Tuesday Update – 4pm
September 4, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Tuesday afternoon! As of 3:50pm, scattered showers and storms were developing all across west and central Alabama. These storms are moving south at 30 to 40mph and are producing very heavy rain. The stronger storms are near and southwest of Tuscaloosa at this point, but they are below severe limits. You’ll need your rain gear handy for the rest of the afternoon and evening hours. With very deep tropical moisture in place and lift from the remnants of Isaac, we can expect periods of heavy rain from time to time for the rest of the afternoon and evening.
Since some of these storms are moving over already flooded areas, some quick flash flooding is possible through midnight tonight. There is a low chance a storm or two could reach severe limits. Wind shear has really dropped off since yesterday, so I don’t expect the risk of tornadoes. A storm may produce damaging winds, so keep that in mind if you have outdoor events planned this evening or early tonight.
Storm chances will quickly drop on Wednesday and Thursday, as Isaac finally moves out of the area. The risk of rain is at 20% tomorrow and Thursday.
