MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - After an active morning, our threat for severe weather has ended across central Alabama. Now, scattered showers will continue overnight, before widespread rain arrives tomorrow morning,
The cold front will stall somewhere near the Florida Panhandle, and a shortwave trough will slide eastward. This will set us up for rounds of rain and storms tomorrow and Thursday.
Rainfall totals could exceed three inches in spots, creating a flooding risk.
With all the expected rain, our entire coverage area is under a Flash Flood Watch until tomorrow at the earliest.
We’ll also watch for the potential of a few strong storms tomorrow. Where the risk resides is dependent on where a warm front stalls tomorrow, which looks to favor the Florida Panhandle over Alabama. Therefore, the risk looks very low for us, but it’s still something we will be monitoring.
The front finally sweeps out of the area later Thursday, bringing an end to our rain chances. This will set us up for a sunny and seasonable weekend!
