A rough night last night for the Tennessee Valley as strong storms with high winds and flash flooding blew through between 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Most of the storm reports were in the form of wind damage:

We had slow-moving storms that produced flash flooding over parts of Limestone, Morgan, and Madison Counties. 1.38 inches of rain was recorded at Huntsville International (KHSV) in just a span of about three hours. The 72-hour rain total at KHSV stands at 3.15 inches. Some Tennessee Valley communities have picked up even more than that.

While scattered afternoon storms are possible again today, we do not expect as much of a show as we got last night. Keep in mind, all storms this time of year have the capability of locally heavy rain, gusty wind, and lots of lightning. We’ll keep an eye on it, but today should be quieter than yesterday overall.
