Storms are riding from southeast to northwest this evening across western Shelby and western Jefferson Counties.
John Talbot reports heavy pouring rain and intense lightning in Concord/Hueytown. His rainfall rate was up to 2.39 inches per hour. Unfortunately, (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), the heavy rain won’t last very long for him. He had recorded 0.24 inches as of 7:52.
The band of storms seems to be pushing slowly westward, while individual storms move north northwest.
Western Shelby, western Jefferson, eastern Tuscaloosa and eastern Bibb Counties will see pockets of heavy rain and lightning over the next hour.
Further northwest, some heavy storms were just west of Jasper, centered around Carbon Hill. Lightning and maybe some small hail with that activity.
Nothing severe now and the storms should gradually lose intensity as we lose the heating of the day.
In South Alabama, flooding continues. 5.74 inches of rain at the Mobile Airport in the 24 hours ending at 7 p.m.
