Rain Arrives Later Today; Colder Air For The Weekend

| November 11, 2021 @ 5:44 am

RADAR CHECK: Most of Alabama is dry early this morning, but we note a band of rain and a few thunderstorms across the Mid-South, over West Tennessee down into the Mississippi Delta region. This rain is along a cold front, and it will push into Alabama later this morning. Most of the rain today will come from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m… amounts should be mostly 1/2 inch or less. Some thunder is certainly possible, if not likely, but no severe thunderstorms are expected today with the main dynamic support well to the north.
