Rain at Times Tonight Through Tuesday… Monday Radar Update 5:45pm
September 17, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Monday evening! As of 5:45pm, much of west and central Alabama is dealing with light to moderate tropical rain. Rain is rather heavy across northwest Alabama, where there could be some issues with flash flooding soon over parts of northern Pickens, Lamar, Fayette, and Marion County. Areas southeast of these counties, the rain amounts should be light enough to reduce the risk of flash flooding.
We do note there’s a dry slot working into southwest Alabama. As the storm system gets better organized, there’s a good chance much of southwest and central Alabama will catch a break from the rain this evening. While showers will continue on and off through tonight and Tuesday, the heaviest rain will remain north of I-20 through the remainder of the event. I don’t think the dry slot will make it much further north than I-20. Rain will remain moderate to heavy for much of the night in areas northwest of Aliceville to Samantha to Jasper.
There was some concern of isolated tornadoes as the surface low moves into central Alabama tonight, but instability is really lacking. The risk of an isolated tornado is very low but not out of the question this evening or tonight. We’ll keep an eye on radar trends. Many of you will enjoy nice sleeping weather through the night.
