A few heavy showers and thunderstorms continue to push east of I-65 into the Sand Mountain and Lookout Mountain regions, but as of this writing, they remain below severe limits.

If you need to head out this evening, we think the weather will be wet, but alright for running errands. If you need to, track heavy storms with WHNT.com’s Interactive Radar or swipe over to the radar feature on Live Alert 19! This tool is perfect for staying ahead of the wet weather; you can see radar, updated forecasts, get lightning alerts, and get access to the latest information we’re pushing out from the station.  You can also see “Future Radar” on Live Alert 19; that’s the same thing we use as our “Futurecast” on WHNT News 19.

We’ll get another chance of some scattered showers and storms on Wednesday. The Storm Prediction Center shows a MARGINAL risk of a few storms with gusty winds and hail across Alabama and Georgia; we don’t see that as a major, plan-altering kind of threat either.
