A complex weather system will produce widespread showers and thunderstorms over Alabama for the next 24 hours.
Showers and storms will stream from south to north through the day and tonight, producing locally heavy rains. Flash Flood Watches are in effect for the southern third of the state.
We expect many locations to receive more than 2 inches of rain with this storm system… with a few locations picking up 4 to 5 inches.
There is a chance of severe thunderstorms over about the southern half of the state, especially this afternoon and into the evening hours tonight.
We will be watching for damaging straight-line winds, hail and a few tornadoes. The strongest risk of severe weather will be along and south of a line from Demopolis, to Selma and to Montgomery.
A cold front will move into northwest Alabama tonight and end the threat of heavy rain and storms from west to east across the state by Wednesday morning.
Colder air will move into the state on Wednesday with strong winds of up to 30 mph expected through the day.
