A trough of low pressure over us right now is prompting a flash flood risk across much of Central AL. We’ve seen Flash Flood Warnings issued for parts of our area earlier this morning & this afternoon.
Some heavy rain can be expected since we will be very humid thanks to deep moisture left behind by the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred. Rain totals could be around 1-2″+ in a few spots, so watch out for minor flooding issues. There is a Level 1 of 5 Marginal Risk for excessive rainfall/flooding today. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s.
Tonight, a few more showers & occasional heavy downpours will be possible. Then it will be partly cloudy and muggy with some patchy fog. Lows will be in the lower 70s.
Friday will be another soggy day with more showers and thunderstorms. Once again, some of the rain could be heavy at times, and we could pick up an additional 1-2″ of rain. The WPC has us under a Level 1 Marginal Risk for excessive rainfall/flooding again. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s.
Weekend Outlook: The trough of low pressure will be moving east of Alabama on Saturday, but it will still help set off scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some heavy rain is still possible. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s. An area of high pressure will build over us on Sunday, and this will lower the chance for rain. We will be partly cloudy, hotter, and still humid with spotty showers and a few thunderstorms. High temperatures climb into the lower 90s, and the heat index will be in the lower 100s.
That’s all for now! Be sure to follow the CBS 42 Storm Team on:
