3PM Monday Radar Check… Lots of Rain & Storms! #alwx @wvua23

WVUA 2016.png

At 3pm, very heavy rain is falling over much of central and south Alabama, with a line of intense storms fast approaching west Alabama. Rain amounts have reached 1 to 5 inches over much of central Alabama, and totals will continue to add up. Fortunately, the storms and rain over south Alabama is blocking the inflow of surface based instability from reaching central Alabama. The lack of surface based instability has really limited the severe weather risk for our portion of the state. Keep in mind, storms that move across our area this afternoon and evening will pack a punch with intense lightning, gusty winds and very heavy rain. A storm or two may go severe with strong wind and some hail, but the tornado risk is looking low. If you live south of Demopolis and Selma, there could still be an isolated tornado in that portion of southwest Alabama this afternoon and evening.

By 8pm, the main batch of storms should be coming to an end over west Alabama, then in east Alabama by midnight.
