Showers and thunderstorms through this evening can mean some downpours for your drive home. Slippery roads and reduced visibility can slow your drive. The showers and thunderstorms will be most common east of I-65 to the Georgia state line. West of I-65 to the Mississippi state line, a stray shower or thunderstorm is possible through about 6 PM, then showers and thunderstorms can increase through 10 PM before winding down for the night between 10 PM and midnight. Severe thunderstorms are not likely, but some storms can produce frequent lightning and heavy downpours.

Your Wednesday morning drive will be dry and muggy. A few showers can form along the Georgia state line starting between 10 AM and noon. Showers and thunderstorms will grow more widespread from noon through 4 PM, increasing the odds that you will be rained on. The evening drive will be rainy. Areas of heavy rain will remain possible about 10 PM to midnight before they end. So your morning will be dry. Your afternoon and evening will be dodgy with slippery roads and reduced visibility.

Increasing tropical moisture flowing into Alabama from the eastern Gulf of Mexico will make the rest of this week and this weekend rainy at times. The rainest days will be Thursday and Friday. Have an alternative plan for your outdoor plans as they may need to move indoors.

Rainfall amounts through Friday will be on the order of an inch to an inch-and-a-half.
