At 4pm, lots of rain covers most of Alabama, but there are no active watches are warnings across or portion of central or west Alabama. The initial morning wave of rain and storms continues across east and south Alabama, where rain has been falling for hours. Rain amounts according to radar estimate have surpassed 5 inches in some areas to the south of I-20 since Saturday.
A final wave of rain and storms is lined up from Butler to Starkville and it moving east northeast. The line has weakened some and there are no longer warnings along the line posed to move into our area. I expect locally heavy rain and thunder to move across our area through the evening, with rain gradually ending in west Alabama between 7pm and 10pm and east Alabama before midnight. Severe weather for central, west and north Alabama appears unlikely for the remainder of the afternoon and evening. We’ll watch radar trends carefully. As previously mentioned, the storms near the Gulf Coast have blocked the inflow from making it into north and central Alabama, reducing the threat.
