SOAKER: Soaking rains continue over the northern third of Alabama… north of Birmingham…

This rain will taper off later tonight as a warm front moves north.

WARM JANUARY DAYS: We are projecting highs in the 70 to 74 degree range tomorrow all the way through Sunday… our big January thaw. And, along with the warmth, the air will be very humid, and we will deal with occasional showers and storms. The rain won’t be continuous, and the sun might even peek out at times. More good news… no severe weather is expected in Alabama.

HEAVY RAIN/FLOOD THREAT? The bad news… a slow moving front could very well set up a long duration, heavy rain event for North and Central Alabama late Sunday through early next week. Rain amounts of 2-4 inches look likely, and some spots could see more than that, and we will need to watch for flash flood issues. Colder and drier air finally will push in here toward the end of next week.
