Periods of rain are likely today across Alabama as warm front lifts northward. The big rains will be to the west, where flooding remains possible over parts of Texas and Louisiana, where flash flood watches are up.

After today’s rain, the batch of showers and storms will arrive late tomorrow and tomorrow evening, but the best dynamic lift remains west of Alabama, and the risk of severe weather or flooding here is very small.

Warmth is also a big story; we rise into the low 70s tomorrow, and highs will remain in the low to mid 70s on Friday and over the weekend. The air will be very moist and occasional showers are possible. We will have to watch for potential for a long duration heavy rain event here early next week with a very slow moving front slicing into the moist air, but model differences make for a difficult forecast at this point.

Again, Brian will be along shortly with a fresh Weather Xtreme video and a longer discussion… stay tuned…
