Some sort of wake low or gravity wave feature is causing gusty winds behind the large rain area over Central Alabama.
We have seen reports of strong winds in the Fayette area and south of Tuscaloosa on highway 69.
At Columbus, MS winds were gusting to over 25 mph for much of the late morning. Winds gusted to 22 mph just before 1 p.m. at Tuscaloosa.
Winds may gust to 45 mph over the next couple of hours over Central Alabama.
The rain is just about over in the Birmingham Metro and will end over East Alabama before sunset.
