We are tracking a spin in the atmosphere called a mesoscale convective vorticity moving across northern Alabama. It continues to produce some locally heavy rainfall especially across Winston and Cullman counties where estimates are over 2". The main batch is shifting slowly to the northeast and focused along and north of a line from Winfield to Jasper to Warrior to Oneonta. South of that main zone of precipitation there are scattered showers and storms.
THREATS: Locally heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding and lightning.
SIMULATED RADAR SHOWS SEVERAL CHANCES FOR RAIN AND STORMS THROUGH THE WEEKEND:
Best chance for rain today is this morning and lingering through the late PM.
Morning showers and storms possible on Saturday with slightly lower PM chances than previous days.
Overall, several disturbances combined with heating of the day instability will result in scattered to numerous showers and storms today and tomorrow and isolated to scattered over the weekend. Temperatures will be held back a bit due to cloud cover but humidity will stay high.
