SOAKED: Just before daybreak a zone of rain and thunderstorms was lined up across North/Central Alabama near a surface front that has been oscillating across the region over the past few days. South of the front, temperatures are in the low 70s at Mobile and Dothan, while we have 40s north of the front at places like Huntsville and Decatur. The overall pattern won’t change much today; a flood watch remains in effect for the northern half of the state, and we will have occasional rain and a few thunderstorms. For places like Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Anniston, and Gadsden temperatures will peak in the 57-62 degree range. No risk of severe storms today.
