I think it's safe to say many areas will stay in the double digit range today, thanks to the clouds and rainfall. Once the rain stops in some of these areas it is going to grow increasingly uncomfortable due to partial sun and moisture.
The heaviest rainfall over the past 24 hours has been located near Piedmont and Knighten's Crossroads on Highway 278. Radar estimates nearly three inches of rain in this area. Additional storms this morning are producing one to two inch totals across Jefferson, Walker, Winston, and Northern Tuscaloosa Counties.
As of 9 AM, the storms remain clustered along Corridor X. Additional development was taking place in Tuscaloosa, Hale, Talladega, and northern Shelby counties. These storms are producing some frequent cloud to ground lightning but they are not severe at this time. The good news is that the storms are moving very slowly with no signs of ending soon. Therefore, beneficial rain will continue to fall in the heart of the area through the rest of this morning. There is still a chance some storms could reach the severe level. We will be monitoring conditions for you throughout the morning!
