However, citizens in Alabama have little to worry about.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham noticed a "northeastward turn" in the hurricane path, noting that Idalia will remain far enough away to have minimal impact.

NWS in Birmingham did predict increased rain chances and breezy conditions on Wednesday, but only in the far southeast counties of Central Alabama. Impacts are expected to remain minimal.
