Rain Continues Through Thursday
Low Risk for Severe Storms
Our soggy situation treks on as a warm lifted through today bringing highs into the upper 60s to low 70s this afternoon. We even had a Tornado Watch this morning in Chambers, Lee and Russell counties in Alabama, but nothing came of it except periods of heavy rain with more on the way. As of Monday morning, we’ve received anywhere from .25 to 1.5″ of rain with an additional 3 to 4″ (locally higher amounts possible) expected through Thursday afternoon.
Periods of heavy rain are on track for Wednesday afternoon into Thursday afternoon (this could be the rainiest stretch) as an upper level low steers a cold front toward the area. With marginal instability and plenty of moisture in place, there is a chance for isolated strong storms tonight into Wednesday, but a severe threat remains low and generally to our south. Gusty winds of 40 mph are possible with these storms.
The cold front passes through Wednesday and is expected to become stationary to our south allowing for the flow of moisture to continue to stream through and trigger more showers into Thursday. The system clears out late Thursday and dry/cooler air moves in making for a windy day on Friday. We should enjoy a good dose of sunshine and dry conditions through the weekend.
Highs Wednesday through Saturday will be cool topping out in the upper 50s to low 60s with overnight lows in the mid 40s dipping to the mid to upper 30s Friday and Saturday night.
