Central and South Alabama to receive rain from Hurricane Delta, not much else

A few areas of showers are possible Thursday and Friday, with higher rain chances Saturday

Hurricane Delta is restrengthening over the Gulf

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - All eyes remain focused on Hurricane Delta as it pushes quickly away from the Yucatan Peninsula. Delta is a category 1 hurricane, but it is strengthening as it crosses the Gulf of Mexico and takes aim at Louisiana.

Delta will make landfall sometime later Friday. This will be a very damaging storm for those along the Louisiana coast. For us in central and south Alabama, it won’t bring much but some rain.

The tornado risk is very low in west Alabama on Saturday.

Saturday will also be the day we see the most rain. Rainfall totals are expected to be too low to cause any flooding, however.

The heaviest axis of rain and flood threat will be to our west with Delta.

Beyond Saturday, we are maintaining a low-end chance of straggling showers on Sunday as the remnants of Delta move into Tennessee and Kentucky.

Regarding temperatures, it is looking like a very warm stretch ahead with daily highs in the middle 80s each afternoon into next week. This may change depending on whether or not we see more rain than currently expected on any given day.
