| August 16, 2021 @ 10:24 pm

Nearly all of the rain associated with Tropical Storm Fred is generally located east of the I-65 corridor along and south of the I-85 over the southeastern corner of the state. We have had several reports of trees and power lines downed in that part of the state. Here is a raw feed from NWS Chat:

The good news is the tornado threat for the southeastern part of Alabama may have come to an end as the Storm Prediction Center has removed the Marginal Risk for severe storms for nearly everyone except for extreme eastern parts of Lee and Russell counties. However, there remains a small flooding threat with the heavy rain through the rest of the night and overnight hours for that part of the state. Winds may briefly gust to 30-35 mph.

Pretty much, the rest of the state remains dry, except for a small shower over the central parts of Lawrence County.
