Storms are already impacting parts of west Alabama this morning, especially in Tuscaloosa county. This activity formed ahead of schedule as we anticipate most of the development to occur this afternoon.
The system we have been tracking across the northeastern Gulf of Mexico is expected to move over land and retrograde slowly westward with time this week.
A slow moving system that will be tapping into abundant moisture raises the concern for heavy rainfall and localized flooding. The greatest concern is going to set up along the immediate Gulf Coast. Farther north, isolated flooding might be possible but that's mainly where rain and storms track over the same areas.
Unsettled weather pattern:
- A high chance for 1-3" rainfall totals
- A high chance for the greatest coverage of showers and storms each afternoon
- A low-moderate chance for localized flooding.
- A low chance for strong storms.
