Rain in forecast Tuesday to Thursday

Rain is in the forecast Tuesday through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS Mobile office said on its Facebook page this morning that a prolonged period of heavy rain Tuesday through Thursday may result in flash flooding, especially in areas hardest hit by recent heavy rains.

Between 2-4 inches of rain are expected widespread, and some 6-8 inches locally.

“It doesn’t stop there though,” NWS officials said. “Severe weather potential is on the increase Wednesday into Thursday. Wednesday into Wednesday night features a marginal risk for severe storms including an isolated, brief tornado, damaging winds and quarter size hail over our southwestern CWA.

“Thursday through Thursday night may feature a more robust severe threat, where the entire CWA is under a slight risk. All severe hazards are possible, including damaging winds, tornadoes and large hail.”
