NOTE: This is not nearly all of the high wind reports from around the area and over West and North Alabama this afternoon. Most of those were included in earlier blog posts.

The main rain area has now shifted over into East Alabama. Mostly light rain continues in the Jefferson/Shelby County area. The heaviest rain of all continues over extreme South and SE Alabama. It is pouring around Mobile and in NW Florida. We will try to round up some specific rain reports a little later this evening.
