A band of heavy rain and storms along the outer periphery of a weak upper level circulation over South Central Mississippi extends across parts of western Alabama tonight.
They extend from eastern Marion and Winston through eastern Fayette and Walker Counties into eastern Tuscaloosa and Jefferson Counties.
The heaviest rain extends from Oakman in Walker County down into eastern Tuscaloosa County and over Norhwest Alabama between Hackleburg and Phil Campbell.
Nothing severe at this point, but there is plenty of lightning, heavy rain, gusty winds and even some small hail.
Pea sized hail was reported at 8:35 south of Haleyville with winds gusting to 40 mph.
We don’t anticipate any more severe weather in Alabama overnight, but we will be watching to make sure heavy rain doean’t become a problem. And we can’t rule out an isolated severe weather report or warning.
More showers and storms were organizing over South Central Alabama over Chilton, Autauga and Dallas Counties. These storms will move north northwest in the same general tracks as the storms that are further to the north.
