January 19, 2017 Leave a comment
At 2:30pm, a line of heavy rain and thunder stretches from Smith Lake to Jasper to Tuscaloosa to Greensboro to Linden. The line is very slowly progressing east and is dumping really heavy amounts of rain. Once the leading edge of the line passes east of you, any limited risk of a stray severe storm will have ended. The limited risk of an isolated severe storm has ended already for cities near and to the west of Haleyville, Tuscaloosa, Greensboro, Demopolis and Linden. Severe weather appears highly unlikely for central and east Alabama, as the line approaches those areas, however, we’ll keep an eye on radar trends to be safe.
A soaking light to moderate rain will continue for west Alabama for the rest of the afternoon, gradually coming to an end from west to east after 8pm tonight. Rain may become heavy at times this afternoon and evening, with most of west and central Alabama picking up between 1 and 3 inches before this round ends tonight.
