They were in the forecast, so they really aren’t illegal, but lots of folks woke to the sound of a little more pitter patter on the roof than they might have expected.
They are the product of some moist air being slowly lifted over Alabama. They are being shunted east northeast in a fairly fast flow aloft.
Most of them are over East Alabama now, over Talladega, Calhoun and Cleburne Counties. But a few more were forming over West Central Alabama.
There is some patchy fog reducing visibility out there now as well. Visibility was down to 1/4 mile at Jasper, 2 1/2 miles at Calera.
You could see a shower or two today, and maybe even a little thunder later if the sun comes out. Still looking for 70F or warmer at most spots, especially if you get a little more sun.
