From James Spann and the weather blog ABC 33/40:
GREAT REMOJO FORWARD : A superior elevation of the Southwest of the USA. UU It will bring a lot of rain to Alabama for the next 24 hours. The NWS office in Huntsville has issued a Flash Flood Watch for its counties … in the Tennessee Valley for the possibility of 2-3 inches of rain …
In addition to the threat of heavy rain, some heavy storms A severe are possible through Central Alabama late tonight on tomorrow morning. SPC maintains a "marginal risk" …
This is the sequence of projected events …
TONIGHT : a moderate to heavy rain band is installed over the northern third of Alabama. Some thunder is possible, but the threat of severe weather will be very low at night. Flash floods will be the main threat.
TOMORROW: Rains and storms will increase south of the large mbad of rain throughout the night in central Alabama during the morning hours. These storms could become strong to severe; the main window for stronger storms will come from 6:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Stronger storms can produce strong impetuous winds, and we can not rule out a brief isolated tornado or two depending on the projected cut profile. The winds become unidirectional in the afternoon, however. The day will be tempered with a high level or slightly higher than 70 degrees.
THURSDAY: We project a dry and temperate climate, since Alabama will be in the intermediate waves; with a combination of sun and clouds, the maximum will be fairly close to 70 degrees, approximately 15 degrees above average for the end of December.
FRIDAY AND WEEKENDS: The rain returns to the state on Friday afternoon and Friday night the Arctic front. This will be the last soft day for a while with a high level again close to 70 degrees. A storm or two is possible on Friday night, but for now heavy storms are not expected.
Saturday will be wet and cooler. Rainy periods are likely, and temperatures could very well drop from 50 in the morning to 40 in the middle and late afternoon, as the winds turn to the north. Then, by Sunday, the best chance of rain moves to southern Alabama. A little sun is possible over the northern counties on Sunday afternoon with a peak in the 40s.
CHRISTMAS DAY: On Monday it looks mostly sunny but very cold; the height will be about 40 degrees above the northern half of the state, and some communities could resist in the 30s all day.
REST OF THE NEXT WEEK : Our climate remains dry and cold until mid-week; then we heat towards the end of the week, and the rain should return on Friday. For now we do not see any threat of snow or ice for Alabama in the next 10 days. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphs and more details.
