Some Messy Days Ahead as Rain Sticks around through the Weekend

October 02 2021 06:00 pm

Tonight will include a few overnight showers. None severe, and as of this 10 o’clock hour, no lightning.

Wednesday will be a soggy day across the Birmingham area thanks to Nicholas. The system will weaken to just a low, but it will slow down with torrential rain across southern Louisiana and the Mississippi Coast. We will be far enough north not to see the heaviest rain, but expect a steady light to moderate rain throughout the day. The clouds and rain will help keep high temperatures only in the mid to upper 70s. Scattered showers will continue Wednesday night with lows in the upper 60s.

Thursday and Friday will have more rain and thunderstorms as Nicholas slowly moves east along the I-10 corridor. Some of the rain could be heavy at times across central Alabama. Rain totals between Wednesday and Friday could be around 1-3 inches across central Alabama. This could lead to minor flooding issues along streams, creeks, and rivers. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s each day.

Weekend Outlook: Nicholas will be just an area of low pressure and its remnants will remain over the SE U.S. We will stay warm and humid in the wake of the tropical system too. Expect Saturday and Sunday to have scattered showers and thunderstorms with some downpours. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s.
