The rain shield has lifted north of I-20 now and rain has ended over the southern half of the Birmingham Metro area. It may build back south a bit over the next few hours as the upper low slides to the southeast.

Winds will remain brisk through Monday as the low lifts out to the northeast. A wind advisory is in effect for all of Central Alabama starting at midnight tonight
Showers will accompany the upper low as it moves across the area tonight as well.
