Rain From Harvey Headed Our Way


Tropical Depression Harvey could bring some rough weather to Alabama again today. Rain chance will be around 50%.

At 10:46 a.m., a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Tamola, or near Lauderdale, moving northeast at 35 miles per hour, according to the weather service. These storms will be capable of producing gusty wind, isolated tornadoes and some localized flooding.

Hydrologist Mike Callahan said there could be some significant rises on rivers, mainly in southern and Western Kentucky, leading to minor flooding.

"The remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey are on the way and we expect to see not only an increased chance of rainfall but unsafe driving conditions as well", AAA Auto Club Groups public affairs specialist Megan Osborne stated in a news release.

The best chance for severe storms will be along and northwest of a line from Demopolis to Clanton to Wedowee.

Heavy rain will also be possible with the stronger storms.

The remnants of Harvey will bring some rain Friday into Saturday.

Heather Cross, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's North Little Rock office, said the potential impact on the Razorback game will be marginal as rain tapers off throughout the morning and afternoon Thursday.

Science Officer Ted Funk said areas north of the Western and Bluegrass Parkways, then north of I-64, will see the highest winds.

Parts of south Alabama have already gotten a lot of rain from Harvey.

Along the beaches, a high surf advisory remains in effect through today.
