Severe Weather Threat Very Low…Heavy Rain is Main Concern… Tuesday Update 9:30 PM

The threat of anything becoming severe looks much lower this evening. Showers and storms have moved across the state for much of the day, with rain totals near 3 inches in spots. More showers and thunderstorms are developing across southwest Alabama. This rain is spreading north northeast at 30 MPH.

At this point, there are no signs of this activity going severe. Instability levels aren’t high enough to cause severe weather issues at this point. The main reason for that is because of a large MCS along the gulf coast. This feature has blocked the inflow of instability into our area. This is great news! That being said, the atmosphere is very moist this evening. Any showers and storms that develop will produce heavy rain. Some spots could pick up an additional inch of rain before the cold front passes through the area late tonight.

We’ll continue to watch the radar tonight, but the chance of severe weather is very low. Unless something changes, this will likely become nothing more than a nice rain event.
