5 day rain forecast totals

A disturbance over western sections of the state are producing a band of showers and embedded thunderstorms. This area will shift slowly eastward across Alabama today.

Daytime heating will interact with the short wave trough and produce additional showers and thunderstorms throughout the day.

A few strong storms will be possible…with wind gusts up to 50 mph, frequent lightning and locally heavy rainfall the main threats.

More showers and thunderstorms are expected on Tuesday as another impulse rotates our way from Texas. Some of these thunderstorms may be strong to severe.
