We are all under a Flash Flood Watch tonight. That means rapid flooding is possible. While most of today was dry and calm, rain returns tonight to add to what many of us picked up on Saturday.
Along with steady heavy rain, there will be thunderstorms. The risk of damaging wind from thunderstorms is small but some will be gusty. The bigger issue is that we saw several inches of rain on Saturday, saturating the soil. North of Mobile, places like Satsuma and Saraland got 4 to 7 inches of rain. It won’t take a lot of rain in a short time to make rapid flooding.
Expect some periods of rain this evening and early tonight. It will mainly be from the middle of the night to the morning rush hour when the next heavy band of rain arrives. If you have to be on the road late tonight or early tomorrow check your weather app first and check wkrg.com and our Facebook page for the latest outlook. Where the heaviest rain and potential problems could be is totally unknown. That’s why you’ve got to be informed and safe.
After a very wet morning, tomorrow afternoon looks half wet.
Wednesday has lingering showers and thunderstorms over about a third of the area.
We’ll be dry and calm for Thursday into Saturday.
