Dry Air Returns To Alabama Wednesday

Dry Air Returns To Alabama Wednesday

| September 20, 2021 @ 5:57 am

WET AT TIMES THROUGH TOMORROW: A flash flood watch remains in effect for roughly the northern half of Alabama as very moist air remains parked over the state. Look for occasional showers and a few thunderstorms through tomorrow night, with heavier rain totals over North Alabama. The ground is saturated, so a few flooding problems could develop as the showers will be very efficient rain producers. Additional rain amounts of 1-2 inches are possible in the flash flood watch area over the next 48 hours.
