Most of the models are in agreement that a soaking rain is in store for us on Sunday! The only odd ball is the NAM, but we can't discount it yet. Amounts will likely range from 1-2" with locally higher amounts possible. Ponding of water on the roadways or localized flooding is also possible so be careful if you plan on doing much driving tomorrow.
What's Happening Now:
Moisture continues to stream in from the southwest which will prime the atmosphere for rain tomorrow. We'll see a mixture of clouds and sun today and a slight chance for a stray shower. Most places should stay rain-free.
Timing the Rain:
-A shield of rain lifts up from the south and impacts areas primarily south of I-20 during the morning hours on Sunday.
-Showers continue to lift up from the south with the soggiest weather along and south of I-20 during the afternoon hours.
-As low pressure along the Gulf Coast ramps up and tracks northeastward, it will shift some of the heavier precipitation northward as well.
-Soggy weather continues Sunday night through Monday morning before shifting eastward by the late afternoon hours.
-Showers linger across east Alabama on Monday afternoon with lingering clouds to the west.
Drier weather takes over late on Tuesday and lasts through Thursday.
We'll continue to post updates on this developing rain maker!
