Heavy Downpours, Flooding Risks Soon for West, Central Alabama
Here is everything you need to know about the incoming weather system that could bring heavy showers that could prompt flooding risks for West and Central Alabama.
You can expect Alabama to be mostly dry and in the mid-80s with only a few showers over the eastern and southern counties. As the day progresses into the late evening you will notice the cloud coverage increase.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that the “wet weather returns tomorrow thanks to deep moisture in place and a broad surface low over Southeast Louisiana. Expect a period of rain and a few thunderstorms... not an "all day/all night" rain, but when the rain does come it could be heavy in spots. Temperatures hold in the 70s all day due to clouds and showers.”
“The weather stays a bit unsettled over the weekend,” said Spann. They are “forecasting scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday with only a limited amount of sun both days. Highs will be in the 80-84 degree range. Rain amounts between tomorrow and Sunday will be average around one inch, but some spots could see more.”
