5 TO 7 INCHES OF RAIN AHEAD FOR NORTHERN HALF OF ALABAMA… Flash flooding will be a concern over the next week across the northern half of Alabama as multiple areas of low pressure cause a prolonged heavy rain event. For now, it seems like the core flash flooding risk will happen along and north of U.S. Highway 80. This means that much of south Alabama and northwest Florida will have 0.5” to 2” of rain in total, with isolated higher amounts. Our forecast calls for a chance of rain each day starting Monday and ending Saturday for our local area, although rain amounts should remain below hazardous/flash flooding values.
STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE THURSDAY… We continue to observe model guidance suggesting yet another round of strong to severe thunderstorms becoming possible late Wednesday into Thursday of the upcoming week. There still are many details to work out and quite a bit can change between now and then, however I would suggest based on trends that we need to keep an eye on midweek for another round of potentially strong to severe storms. I’ll have your full forecast details in my next video, which will be posted by 2PM on Sunday.
