A moist, unstable airmass remains over Alabama, and we will maintain the risk of widely scattered showers through this evening, with the higher coverage this afternoon over the northern quarter of the state, north of Birmingham. Otherwise, today will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a high in the low 80s.
ONE MORE BATCH OF SHOWERS THIS EVENING: Radar shows a band of showers and storms over Northeast Mississippi; these will move across the northern third of Alabama this evening, but the air was totally worked over by the morning storms, and the risk of additional severe weather is low.
An approaching surface front will bring a band of showers and a few thunderstorms to North Alabama late tonight and tomorrow morning; SPC has now issued a “marginal risk” of severe storms in the broad area from Muscle Shoals to Memphis and Little Rock; this risk areas clips the far northwest corner of Alabama. The best chance of showers and storms will come from midnight tonight through 10:00 a.m. tomorrow; rain amounts should be 1/2 inch or less for most places.
RADAR CHECK: We have patches of rain over North/Central Alabama early this morning as an active pattern begins across the Deep South. The air over the northern half of the state will be stable today, and the only part of Alabama with a risk of strong storms will come over the southwest counties, where SPC […]
RADAR CHECK: Rain is falling over parts of North/Central Alabama this morning thanks to slowly northward moving warm front… The rain will taper off later this morning, and we expect only isolated showers this afternoon and tonight.

RADAR CHECK: On this mild January afternoon we have some light rain falling over Northwest Alabama… The showers are ahead of a cold front approaching Alabama from the northwest; showers are likely at times through midnight, with the possibility of a little thunder in a few spots.

A FEW SHOWERS TODAY: A surface front will approach Alabama from the west today, and we expect showers to move into the state this afternoon and tonight.

Clouds will thicken tonight with a weakening surface front approaching from the west. MID-WEEK: We will mention a chance of showers tomorrow and tomorrow night as the front gets close, […]
