A large area of heavy rainfall has stalled out where you see it on radar as of 10:30pm. I expect this rain to at least persist through midnight at the current rate. It may take several hours for the batch of precipitation to dissipate. Model data is doing a horrible job not only predicting this area of rain and thunder in Alabama but also the future of the storms approaching from the west. I'm going to continue the chance for strong storms in west Alabama through 2am. Before going to bed, be sure to have a way to be woken up and alerted in case a severe storm warning is issued for your location. Stay especially weather aware if you live in Lamar, Pickens and Greene county. Main threats remain strong wind gusts and heavy rainfall.
The pink shaded counties are under a severe thunderstorm watch until 1:00am.
The orange shaded counties are under severe thunderstorm warnings as of 10:30pm.
Have a good night,
