Aaron Gleason, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Calera, said the line is not very strong. If there is severe weather, he said, it will likely happen west of Tuscaloosa near the Mississippi line.
According to the National Weather Service, the greatest risk will be for the area northwest of Interstate 59. That risk could include damaging straight-line winds and isolated tornadoes.
Gleason said Thursday evening that it was too soon to tell if flood advisories were possible for the Calhoun County area. However, most of the rain should leave east Alabama by 1 p.m. today, he said.
The forecast from the National Weather Service calls for temperatures to drop to 48 degrees by 10 a.m. today. Saturday, however, is expected to be sunny with a high of 62. Sunday’s forecast calls for a mostly sunny day with a high of 68.
“It should be a really nice weekend with low humidity,” Gleason said.
