Showers and storms continue over West Alabama at this hour. Others are entering Northeast Alabama.
They cover parts of Maroi\\ion, Northwestern Walker, Lamar, Fayette, western Tuscaloosa, Pickens and Greene Counties.
They are moving southward.
Let’s zoom in:
Storms are lined up along US-278 from west to east of Hamilton, then down to Brilliant. Moving south. Will affect US-78 between Hamilton, Guin, Winfield to Glen Allen. These storms will affect northwestern Fayette County in areas mainly north and west of the town of Fayette. Facebook report of lots of pea seized hail and some tree damage north of Hamilton about 4:50 p.m.
Storms over southern Lamar, northern Pickens have weakened a bit and reformed over eastern Mississippi northeast of Columbus. A new storm was intensifying near Aliceville. It will push across the Tombigbee and into northern Greene County. 0.72 inches of rain in 39 minutes according to our Skywatcher in southwestern Lamar County, and still raining heavily. Doppler radar estimates indicate over one inch in parts of southern Lamar County. Fortunately, this is south of some of the more flood prone parts of the county, but some short term flooding could occur, so be careful if you are driving.
Strong storms pushing into Jackson County in Northeast Alabama have weakened a bit. But others are upstream and will enter the county later.
