Plan for Heavy Rain on Halloween Afternoon, Evening

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Here is the latest timing on rain Thursday evening. Be prepared to get wet  especially along and west of I-65. Those of you on Sand Mountain and Lookout Mountain could escape the heavy rain until after trick-or-treating. Here is a look one of our computer models at 7pm Thursday.

Showers are possible at anytime Thursday, but the heaviest rain moves in during the afternoon and evening. Kids, be prepared for light rain and locally heavy downpours west of I-65. Bring the rain gear and consider wearing a raincoat over your costume. Once the steady rain begins, it will likely last through the overnight into Friday morning. Winds pick up to 30 mph and an isolated severe storm, but nothing significant is expected. Here is a look at the timeline with several cities/towns.

2pm-6pm: Florence, Tuscumbia, Red Bay, Phil Campbell, Leoma, Lawrenceburg, Pulaski, Leighton, Cherokee, Killen, and Rogersville.

7pm-11pm: Huntsville, Fayetteville, New Market, Decatur, Somerville, Eva, Cullman, and Lacey’s Spring.

Midnight to 4am: Fort Payne, Albertville, Scottsboro, Ider, Valley Head, & Guntersville.
