As I noted yesterday, Central Alabama has become drier as the year wears on after a somewhat wettish start in January. So the broad area of rain and showers coming as a result of a weak upper disturbance and an abundance of tropical moisture is a very welcome sight for most. Here’s a quick rundown on some rainfall observations through the morning hours.
Most of the rain going on around 10 am was in a band that stretched from Nashville through Huntsville, Birmingham, and Montgomery to the vicinity of Pensacola and Fort Walton on the Gulf Coast.
Some observed rainfall from this morning through about 9 am. These represent storm totals so far since rain began yesterday.
Current radar trends suggest that the bulk of the rain has cleared the Alabama counties along the Mississippi-Alabama line. Individual showers and patches of rain were moving northward with a slow drift to the whole rain area slightly eastward. No rain yet in places like Auburn, Anniston, Dothan, and Mt. Cheaha.
