Quiet Now – Heavy Rain For the 4th

Posted on: 4:02 pm, July 2, 2013, by

It’s a quiet evening with rain chances remaining low through this evening. Only a few showers fall over east Alabama. If you are in DeKalb, Jackson, Marshall, and Etowah Counties you have the best chance of getting wet this evening. Here is a look at Armor Storm Vision  just before 4pm. I circled the light rain in orange.


Big changes start Wednesday. Heavy rain is likely as moisture moves in from the south. Flood watches could be posted for portions of the Tennessee Valley including the 4th of July. If you are heading to any of the displays this week, take your rain gear. You can find a list of the all the Independence Day festivities by clicking here It will likely rain everywhere on Thursday! There is still a question on how much for some. East Alabama has the best chance of flooding rain though we can’t rule it out area wide through Friday. Here is the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center forecast map through Friday. The darker red and maroon indicate over 2″ of rain possible for the time period. Check back for further updates as the 4th of July approaches.


There is still some uncertainty in this forecast. As you can see, the Shoals has about .50″ to 1″ of rainfall through Friday evening. That forecast could change in the coming days.
