Spending a lot of time in Alabama this week. We always seem to do this in clump.
At 1210AM, CT, Gadsden was reporting overcast skies with a temperature of 57 degrees. The area was surrounded by by rain and clouds, with the strongest line of thunderstorms still west of Huntsville. A strong bowling ball of low pressure has moved through the mid-Mississippi Valley, and was drawing the necessarily moisture for the thunderstorm activity north into the state.
The system has reached the eastern slope of the parent trough, and is beginning to move to the northeast, which means the front will slow to a crawl. Rain is expected to continue across Gadsden through the day Wednesday, with a break overnight into Thursday. An area or low pressure will develop along the boundary over the western Gulf of Mexico, and bring even more rain to the area late in the day Thursday as the new low follows the original boundary. All told, Gadsden can expect a couple of inches of rain over the next two days, with Thursday bringing the chance for some heavier thunderstorms.
