More Rainy Periods Likely Thursday

Thursday, much like Wednesday, will be rainy at times with dry spells in the breaks.

Posted: Aug. 8, 2018 4:35 PM

Areas of heavy rain, especially around Huntsville and Madison, will impact our evening drive. Expect reduced visibility, slippery roads, and localized street flooding. Remember your low beam headlights, and give yourself plenty of time to make your drive safely.

The rain will linger through about 7 PM, then we will get a break before another cluster tracks into the Shoals after 9 PM. That rain can be heavy at times, too. It will end from midnight to 2 AM from west to east. That rain is heading our way from the other side of the Mississippi River this evening.

More rain will develop as early as 8 AM to 10 AM west of I-65, then rain can increase east of I-65 from 10 AM through noon. Heavy rain will come in waves with occasional breaks likely. Be ready for rain all day, but it's possible a prolonged break occurs for the Thursday evening drive. Another round of rain could arrive after 10 PM Thursday night.

Heavy rain can limit visibility and lead to localized street flooding. Those slippery roads can be dangerous at high speeds, so be sure to drive at slower speeds and be safe. Storms can come with dangerous lightning and loud thunder, too. Keep the rain gear close. If you step out and don't need the rain gear immediately, you may very well need it soon.

Periods of rain can last through Sunday before drying begins next week.
