Possible Heavy Rain, Flooding for Central, West Alabama Later This Week
Later this week our coverage areas will experience a slow-moving frontal system which has the potential to bring concerning rainfall. Currently, the timeframe for this activity is from Wednesday, February 2, 2022, until early Friday, February 4, 2022. The flooding potential could take place on Thursday due to the possibility of “widespread, strong, and heavy showers throughout the day,” according to the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “temperatures will rise to near 70 degrees Thursday afternoon and it will be the warmest day of the week. Rain and thunderstorms will move in Thursday night into Friday morning ahead of a cold front. For now, severe storms are not expected, but the rain could be heavy at times. Rain amounts between Wednesday afternoon and Friday will be in the 2-3 inch range for much of the state. The rain will end over North Alabama Friday morning, but wet weather lingers over the southern counties of the state through Friday evening. Friday will be cooler with a high around 50 degrees.”
